The fundraiser follows a conversation the team had with the South African cast of the film (John Kani and Connie Chiume) who indicated that they would love it if every South African child could be afforded an opportunity to watch the movie.
The young people will receive a movie ticket, popcorn, a cold drink as well as doughnuts.
