On Saturday, March 22, Starlight members traveled to Regal Garden Cinemas in Skokie, IL to participate in the year's first private movie screening. The event, titled “Starlight Goes to the Movies: Muppets Most Wanted,” was sponsored by Northwestern Mutual Northbrook, http://evansgroup.nmfn.com/, and featured appearances by characters, Muppet-inspired crafts and snack packs for each child that included popcorn, a fruit snack and a small drink. More than 30 families gathered for the showing and both children and adults, alike, raved about their exclusive, VIP experience.
