    Venue announced for Rocky Mountain premiere of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones

    April 4, 2002
    DENVER ? The Rocky Mountain premiere of the Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones will take place at the Continental Theatre at I-25 and Hampden, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox announced today.

    The screening, benefiting the Kempe Children?s Foundation, will take place on Sunday, May 12th at 4 pm. One of only 11 cities across the United States and Canada selected by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox to host premieres, the event will raise funds for Kempe?s work with abused and neglected children.

    Individual ticket prices at $250 for adults and $125 for children under 18 years of age. Tickets are currently on sale through the Kempe website at www.kempe.org. Ticket purchases will be a charitable donation with 100% of the total cost eligible for tax benefit.

    Ten percent of all tickets will go to underprivileged children. Kempe is looking for sponsors to underwrite these ticket costs.

    ?We are grateful to George Lucas and his commitment to maximize funding to much needed children?s programs. Child abuse is not a local issue. He is bringing national attention to the critical issue of child abuse and neglect and helping us spread our message to a much wider community,? said Carrie Nolan, President, Kempe Children?s Foundation.

    Kempe has already received calls from Nevada, Nebraska, New Mexico and Arizona regarding this exclusive charity event. Kempe anticipates the brisk ticket sales to continue for a sold out show.

    The Kempe Children?s Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is comprised of business and community leaders dedicated to ending child abuse and neglect. The Foundation?s goals are to increase awareness, provide prevention tips and educational materials and secure needed resources to support the work of the Kempe Children?s Center. The Center provides treatment, training, program evaluation, education and program development to prevent and treat children.
