Santa Lucia Middle School students will show “The Sandlot” in the gym on a movie night from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 17.
The movie is a coming-of-age story about a group of young baseball players in 1962.
The event is a fundraiser to help provide safe drinking water for the Sudan. Students were motivated to raise money for this cause after reading the book, “A Long Walk to Water” as part of their curriculum.
The $5 donation for admission will be sent to the Water for Sudan Foundation, which was founded by one of the boys in the book. Students will also sell hot dogs, popcorn and other goods during the event.
