A Night Of Wonder: A Celebration Of The Craniofacial Community Is Nov. 17

Monday, November 6, 2017

FACES: The National Craniofacial Association will be hosting a special Red Carpet experience and screening of Wonder at the Regal Theater at Hamilton Place on Friday, Nov. 17, at 6:30 p.m. The film has been adapted from a New York Times best-selling young adult novel by R.J. Palacio. The film stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay. 

The story is about Auggie Pullman and his experience of attending middle school after being previously homeschooled. This transition would be hard for any child, but for Auggie it is particularly challenging, because he has a craniofacial difference. 

The audience will be diverse, including individuals with craniofacial differences, local school children, and business and medical professionals. The event will include a Red Carpet arrival, photo opportunity, swag bag for attendees, free popcorn and coke, and announcements from those in the FACES’ community. The Red Carpet will be from 6:30-7 p.m. 

For more information call 266-1632 or 800-332-2373 or register to attend at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/night-of-wonder-movie-premiere-registration-39052915321?aff=es2
