The Oak Park Women’s Guild (OPWG) will host its 6th Annual Movie Fundraiser at the Lake Theatre, located at 1022 Lake Street, in downtown Oak Park, in support of 1-year-old Kasani Allen and his family.
OPWG is presenting a special screening of the family-friendly film “ET” on Saturday, February 28th, 2015. Doors open at 9:00 AM. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased in advance at the Lake Theatre Box Office. The family friendly event will include entertainment, drawings and prizes.
Following his birth in July 2014, Kasani underwent two surgeries and spent 80 days in neonatal intensive care. More than 20 diagnostic tests and invasive procedures led to inconclusive results. Kasani needs constant care, including feeding assistance and oxygen and heart monitoring. He also requires a variety of weekly physical, occupational and speech therapies.
All proceeds will go to support the Kasani’s family, who live in Oak Park. To make a donation online, please visit www.oakparkwomensguild.org. Supporters are welcome to invite friends and family to help support this family in need.
