Young professionals will pass the hat at “Cars” to raise money for an inclusive playground

In Kearney, NE the community has done a fabulous job raising funds for their new accessible playground.  They are down to needing less than $20,000.   The Kearney Young Professionals Network came up with an interesting idea to make a dent in the final push.

They will show the Pixar movie “Cars” in the park and invited families to come and enjoy a fun family event by watching a movie in the park.  The Professional Network will sell  concessions during the movie and then  literally pass the hat asking people to make a donation to the playground that all of their children will be playing on.

We commend everyone in Kearney for raising over $300,000 for a new accessible playground.  If you are in the area on August 6th, go enjoy a movie and throw your change (bills and checks) in the hat!
