Restless Heart: The Confessions of Saint Augustine

WHAT A FUNDRAISER-FAITHRAISER!  If you need income to start a Mom's group or for special projects, this is it!  Last night the Niagara Falls Catholic Mom's Group hosted the movie Restless Heart at our local theater. It was a huge success.  We sold out of 300 tickets.  

Everyone clapped when the movie was over.  Here's what one viewer posted on Facebook after the movie, "Just came from a showing of True Confessions , about St Augustine. Its worth going all you friends of mine are invited when it plays again!!"

The proceeds from the movie will be used for supplies, speakers, and special projects throughout the year.  In addition, we'll be tithing money to the new Respect Life group in our public high school (hooray!!).  We dream of one-day getting the kids to Washington D.C. for the March for Life.  

The best part is that this is a faith-raiser and a true blessing to any community.  I can't tell you how many people thanked us for bringing 'this type of movie' to the area.  Let's face it - it's tough to find a clean movie these days, let alone a GREAT clean movie.  And one that's Catholic?!  (Keep in mind that even Protestant churches are coming out to see this movie! A great saint is a great saint).

We had a few really great God-moments throughout these past 6 weeks.  For example, a wonderful priest contacted us to order a DVD.  He ended up sending a $100 donation to our Mom's group.   

So, for those interested in organizing this, I thought I would share a few ideas on how we set this up.

By the way, I talked to a few people I know who organized this fundraiser in other parts of the country and they all said the same thing. "We sold out and quickly booked our next showing".  We were still getting calls for more tickets the day of the event so we went ahead and booked our next showing for Wed, Oct 9.  Once all the initial set-up is done, running this a second time is going to be even easier than the first.  It's all almost too good to be true.  Thank you, Ignatius Press!
