"A Year of a Million Moments" Comes to Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley
Santa Clarita (Aug. 19, 2011) - At the beginning of this year, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment pledged to donate one million moments from its catalog of DVDs to community investment partners across the country. In mid-August, the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley became a recipient of 1,000 DVDs.
The initiative is part of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment's "Year of a Million Moments" campaign celebrating movies made memorable, quotable, and unforgettable by the people who watch and embrace them.
Jim Ventress, chief professional officer of the Club, was pleasantly shocked. "The quality of the movies is amazing. We are grateful for the generosity of Twentieth Century Fox," he said. The collection includes four of the Star Wars saga, the X-men movies and both Night of the Museum flicks.
Every Friday at the Newhall and Canyon Country Clubhouses, the kids enjoy a movie so the new collection will be divided between the two sites. Some of the movies will be used as gifts and incentives (such as homework completion) for the students, and others will go towards raffles for the parents.
