Carpenter’s Shelter will host a pre-release event for the film “Same Kind of Different as Me.”
Carpenter’s Shelter is hosting an exclusive pre-release red carpet charity event for the film “Same Kind of Different as Me” at the AMC Hoffman Center 22 on Oct. 18, to raise awareness and support for their mission, as inspired by the movie.
“Same Kind of Different as Me” is the true story of international art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear), who befriends a homeless man (Djimon Hounsou) in hopes of saving his struggling marriage to Debbie (Renee Zellweger).
With much of the story taking place at a rescue mission, Pure Flix Entertainment and Paramount Pictures have provided the opportunity for helping nonprofit organizations with similar missions to host pre-release red carpet events to increase their donor and volunteer engagement.
“Carpenter’s Shelter’s history is about people helping people. This movie might highlight someone else’s story, but we see dedicated individuals pitching in to assist the homeless in our community each and every day. I look forward to seeing you in line for the movie,” said Shannon Steene, executive director.
Tickets prices are $25 general admission, movie showing at 6 p.m. and $75 VIP Red Carpet Event admission, movie showing at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at www.CarpentersShelter.org. There are a limited number of tickets.
Carpenter’s Shelter, located in Old Town, Alexandria, supports the homeless to achieve sustainable independence through shelter, guidance, education and advocacy.
