Moviegoers raise money for Hopelink

“Sex and the City,” the movie, took in $26 million at the box office on May 30, but the real story in east and north King County is the $25,840 that a special premiere showing earned for Hopelink, a social services agency helping families in need.

More than 240 people, mostly women, arrived at Lincoln Square Cinemas in Bellevue at 9:30 a.m. that day, eager to watch the much-anticipated film and support Hopelink in the process. The proceeds from the event, organized by community volunteer Heija Nunn, will help Hopelink’s food banks feed north and east King County families over the summer when their children don’t have access to school lunch programs, and will provide them with other critical homelessness prevention services.

For information on Hopelink and its services, call (425) 869-6000 or visit
