New England Cars 2 Meet to benefit the Power of 10 -WE RAISED $10,000



** UPDATE 6/27 - Hi Everyone.. Due to the length of the movie we are going to open the doors at 9:00 and ask everyone to be in there seats at 9:45 .
You are not going to want to be late.. Please help us by passing this message along.

We have over 30 door prizes and 20 Silent Auction Items. Due to space and time constraints we will not be able to set them all up at the movie. We will bring a few of the door prize items and all of the Silent Acution items to accomodate those only coming to the movie. No issues for those coming to the BBQ as there is pleanty of time and space there.




Hi Everyone,
I am pleased to announce the finalized details of the New England Cars 2 meet to benefit The Power of 10 and Give Kids the World. The meet will take place on Saturday, July 2nd at 10 AM at Cinema World in Fitchburg, MA. Doors will open at 9:15 and the movie will start at 10. I am still working to get 3D.

Fitchburg is located 1 hour west of Boston, 1 hour North of Providence, RI and 1 hour south of Manchester, NH for those of you flying in. There are a Sheraton 4 Points and a Courtyard by Marriott (with a Coco Key Water resort) close by for anyone needing hotel rooms but I would recommend staying closer to Boston if you are coming in for the weekend.

The Movie theatre holds 215 people so that will be the maximum number of people for the movie portion of this event. Cost is a $10 donation and the ticket price will all go to Give Kids the World. Remember Dreams is willing to match what we raise...

There will be a BBQ, Silent Auction and Raffle from Noon - 4:00 at the Eagles Club in Leominster following the movie July 2nd. The Eagles is about 15 min from the theater and has fields and a hall so we are good Rain or Shine. Tickets for the BBQ will also be $10. As of now most of the food is being donated and we are getting monetary donations to offset the cost of the hall and any other expenses we have.

We will have a Silent Auction and Raffle including Patriots Tickets, Tom Hanks Autographed Merchandise, a Cars 2 Poster signed by the Podcast team and an opportunity to do a Dining Review with Kevin and John not to mention we are working on donations from Best Buy, Story Land and many others. If you have any leads please let me know and I will forward you the donation request letter.

Please take a moment to confirm if you will be coming to the BBQ in addition to the movie so we have a good idea of head count. The hall holds 300 so we have plenty of room to grow!!


*****UPDATE 6/4 - The planning committe and I have talked and we have decided to stick with 2D for the movie. Many people have mentioned to us that seeing 3D is an issue for them and the 2D Theatre holds more people so we now have room at the movie for 250 people!! That means more butts in chairs and more money for GKTW. Let me know if you want to bring a friend and add to the number!!*****

As Pete & Walter have not been to New England in years I am really counting on the New England fans to show them a good time!!

I am keeping a list with names and number of people coming so please make sure you let us know how many people are in your group and names so i can have name tags ready!! Have I mentioned how excited I am for this!!

(keeping with the 10 theme) Would you be interested? Would you bring your friends? We would need at least 100 people to make it worth it… What are your thoughts? Can we make this happen?

How wonderful! We will be away on vacation, but would have loved to go. GOod luck.

I would love to do this, but that's the technical run-through for the Musical I'm in that opens the next weekend... But what a great idea!

Tara, see this thread as well...there was an attempt at another meet, but it sort of fell apart...plenty of people interested though.

Having the showing early works for me!! I would probably bring someone else who likes movies ... especially Disney/Pixar. I guess that means I have to watch the original Cars all the way through.

Pete you're coming to Massachusetts

Great idea Tara!!

What a wonderful idea Tara! Sounds like so much fun. Would you be willing to start a thread about this in the Power of 10 forums too? We might get some more people over there that might not necessarily read the podcast forum.

How far would Fitchburg be from the Cape? Just from the bridge is fine. Depending on the distance, I could bring a car full at least.
