In a continuing effort to provide more public schools access to Knowledge Channel resources, Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) organized its first ever movie block screening of the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, last November 18, 2018 at Cinema 7, Powerplant Mall in Rockwell, Makati.
The fundraiser entitled “Admit One, Educate All” was attended by more than 300 of KCFI’s partners and supporters both in the public and private sectors. The event was also graced by the presence of Mercedes Lopez Vargas, Executive Director of the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library, Angela Lopez Guingona, Operations Head of Lopez Group Foundation, Rina Lopez Bautista, President and Executive Director Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc., and Annalyn M. Sevilla, Undersecretary of the Department of Education.
Before the screening of the movie, the audience was treated with raffle prizes which included mobile phones, watches and gadgets from MyPhone Pilipinas, gift certificates from Japan Home Center, ride-all-you-can passes from Star City, and an overnight stay gift voucher from Aruga Serviced Apartments.
More than Php140,000 was raised from the event. Proceeds will be used to donate the “Gift of Knowledge” Package – an educational multimedia system comprised of a 40-inch LCD television, external speakers, and a portable media library containing more than 1,000 Knowledge Channel educational videos and other multimedia resources.
