Meals From Middle-Earth
A benefit raffle raised enough cash to fund nearly 3000 meals for Capital Area Food Bank.
On Tuesday evening, Dec. 17, local members of the Rings on the Range, a statewide Tolkien fan group (groups.msn.com/ringsontherange), held a raffle at the Alamo Drafthouse North to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank. Moviegoers lined up hours before the first midnight screening of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (which was sold-out weeks in advance), some in hobbit-wear, all in hobbit-spirit. All told, the raffle raised $528, which translates into almost 3,000 meals for locals in need. Nicely done.
