Citizens Caring for Children (CCC), a nonprofit organization providing clothing, shoes, books, school supplies, mentors and other necessities to foster children, is partnering with Harkins Theatres in Bricktown at 6 p.m. Tuesday to present “A Night at the Movies.”

The event will feature a prescreening of one of this summer's blockbuster hits, however the movie will not be revealed until showtime.

Guests will be treated to hors d'oeuvres, drinks, popcorn, swag bags and have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items featuring movie memorabilia.

Tickets are $50 in advance and available by calling 753-4099 or by going online to www.citizenscaringforchildren.org.

The nonprofit is currently seeking tax-deductible donations of either goods or services to be auctioned at “A Night at the Movies.” All proceeds from this event fund the costs associated with serving Oklahoma foster children.
