Forest Park Medical Center Southlake has joined Southlake Style, Tommy Pennington Realty Group, Harkins Theatres and stars from the upcoming movie An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky for an event that will benefit the GRACE Feed Our Kids Program.  The sold-out premiere is set for Monday, July 8 at Harkins Theatres Southlake 14.

"Forest Park Medical Center Southlake is pleased to support the upcoming American Girl movie premiere and assist in raising funds for the GRACE Feed Our Kids Program," says CEO Charles Nasem. "Programs like this are integral to our community and the support of local children, and we commend GRACE for the work they are doing."

Through Feed Our Kids, low-income children receive lunch from GRACE volunteers and staff. “Frequently, these children must be left alone during the day while their parents work,” says Executive Director Shonda Schaefer. “Feed Our Kids provides children with a nutritious meal, and the program also gives children enrichment activities and opportunities to socialize safely with other children and volunteers.”

GRACE begins its Feed Our Kids program next week at six sites across Grapevine. “Summer is officially here at GRACE,” Schaefer says. “We start the program Monday providing lunches for local children who may otherwise not receive a lunch during the summer months. The Penningtons and Tesorieros, Southlake Style publishers, are such great friends and supporters of GRACE. They hold local children in need of assistance dear to their hearts as I know they keep GRACE at the forefront of their businesses and personal lives as well.”

Attendees of the movie premiere will be treated to a red carpet-style affair where they will have the opportunity to not only see the movie but also meet and greet Dawson Middle School student Sidney Fullmer and her three co-stars and friends, Alex Peters, Mika Abdalla and Alana Gordillo. 

"While working with American Girl and the Fullmer family, we realized putting on a special premiere event would be a great way to bring the community together,” says Southlake Style owner Nicole Tesoriero. “By partnering with Forest Park Medical Center Southlake and our friends, Tommy and Stephanie Pennington, we are able to give 100 percent of ticket proceeds of this event to benefit area children in need.  Mike and I couldn't be more excited about all the positive energy surrounding this special night.”
