Pentangle Arts and Change the World Kids host a benefit dinner and FREE SCREENING of Good Will Hunting to support the organization’s annual work trip to re-forest Bosque para Siempre, a critical migratory biological corridor in Costa Rica. For 15 years CTWK has planted, tended and measured trees providing crucial habitat that supports Vermont’s migratory songbirds and native rainforest species. The trees they planted in the first five years are now taller than a two story house!
Pre-movie dinner is at 6:00 pm in the North Universalist Chapel dining hall in Woodstock, and costs $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. The yummy menu features, Mixed Field Greens with Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, Sweet Italian Sausage Baked Ziti with Fresh Ricotta and Homemade Tomato Basil Sauce, and Apple Crisp topped with Vermont Whipped Cream.
