CHATHAM–Thanks to two sell-out screenings of the new film Taking Woodstock at the Crandell Theatre July 30, the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York is receiving a donation of $11,250. The Chatham Film Club sponsored the special showing of the film to raise funds for its campaign to purchase the historic theater. The Regional Food Bank was chosen to benefit as well.
“We’re pleased to be able to partner with another important community organization that helps so many of our neighbors in these difficult times,” Sandi Knakal, president of the film club, said in a press release from the club. In all, 10 food pantries in Columbia County will benefit from the donation.
