Movie Night in the East Bayfront Neighborhood by Jim Wertz

The United Way of Erie County and the Bayfront East Side Taskforce (BEST) are joining forces to put family first on in the East Bayfront neighborhood.

Tonight – July 24 – the organizations will host a double event featuring “Reading Buddies,” an early childhood literacy program of the United Way of Erie County, and a movie night at Nate Levy Park between 2nd and 3rd streets at Holland and German streets. Reading Buddies begins at 830PM and tonight’s film, The Jungle Book, begins at 9PM.

Reading Buddies is a program that offers helpful tips and training for parents and guardians to read to their children. Each participating family will receive a free book. Refreshments and a chance to win a $25 Walmart gift card are also available.
