Summary of project We purchased "A Closer Walk" from AMSA and had 2 showings on the school campus. At the event, we held a bake sale and had a donation jar for both the movie and/or the food. We also put out some information on AMSA so people would know more about who was sponsoring the event.

Funding breakdown of sources and/or donations:
Project advertising Email sent to all of the students on campus via general server; advertisements in the halls. We probably should have made announcements before the classes to give them a description of the movie and encourage their participation.
Success rating
(1 = unsuccesful, 5 = very successful)
Lessons/suggestions We wanted to make this a community project but given the limited amount of time we had between acquiring the movie and getting the organization together, we didn't get around to spreading the word to the community that we were having this event.

Comments The movie was around $30 and the bake sale goods were donated by members of AMSA, and friends and family of AMSA members.
