Sarah Biederman set up a face-painting station for kids as part of the entertainment during the NHS Movie Night.

The National Honor Society recently held another event for Patchogue-Medford! The members planned a movie night open to the elementary kids of the district. The event consisted of the Disney movie Encanto and many other fun activities for families to take part in.   

Once checked in, families could buy popcorn and snacks to eat during the showing. However, before the movie even began, kids could get their face painted by volunteers from both the national honor society and art honor society. They could get a balloon animal from other volunteers, and they also revived a bag of goodies to take home.   

While the movie was going on some of our music students walked the isle encouraging the children to sing along with the movie. These performers also took to the stage during intermission to entertain those who chose to stay seated.  

Not only was this a fun event that brought the community together, but it also served as a fundraiser for ALS Ride for Life. The NHS has been working with ride for life for years now and is always looking to find new and innovative ways to collect donations. You too can donate money at http://rmd.me/ih.GmBhFVUe . The Ride for Life program hopes to strike out the ALS disease and help those affected by it.  

The movie night was fun for everyone and helped raise money for a great cause. As the NHS continues their journey in their stride against ALS, they hope that the rest of the Patchogue-Medford community will join in and help.
