Middletown, NY – Going to a drive-in movie on Thursday, June 30, will benefit Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County, supporting their program to support children being cared for by relatives.

All ticket sales will fund the Relatives as Parents Program (RAPP). Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County’s Relatives as Parents Program is a community-based program providing resources, education, and peer support to kinship families in Orange County.

RAPP has been supporting relative caregivers since 1998 and since its inception the program has grown to a network of over 200 families, a countywide agency coalition and a corps of Peer Mentor Volunteers. Monthly support groups, educational resources, youth programs and other support services are available at several Orange County locations.

The movie “Lightyear” will be shown. Tickets are $12.00 per adult (ages 12 and over) and $8.00 per youth (ages 11 and under).

“We look forward to hosting families for a night out while also giving back,” said Beth Wilson, owner of the Warwick Drive-In. Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County and the RAPP Program would like to thank the Warwick Drive-In for sponsoring this event.

Cornell Cooperative Extension and its partnerships provide programs for Orange County residents on youth and family development; nutrition, health, and food safety; community and economic vitality; and agricultural sustainability through Cornell based research.

All cars should be parked by 8:15 p.m. in advance of the 9:00 p.m. showing time. The Warwick Drive-In is located at 5 Warwick Turnpike, Warwick, NY 10990.
