The American Conservation Film Festival Fundraiser…Dinner & Movie

April 11, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The American Conservation Film Festival (ACFF) will celebrate spring with a movie and dinner party on April 11 featuring the film Ground Operations: Battlefields to Farmfields, its filmmaker, and special guests involved with farming and veterans’ issues.

Festivities begin at 4:30pm at the Opera House with the screening of this award-winning 40-minute documentary that champions combat vets who are rebuilding their lives as organic farmers and ranchers and revitalizing their communities with access to local, affordable, fresh, healthy food.

Following the movie, the party will move to the Shepherdstown Community Club for a cocktail hour, discussion with the special guests including local farmer-author Forrest Pritchard and Barbie Hartman, Chief of Nutrition and Food Service at the VA Medical Center in Martinsburg, and a locally-sourced buffet dinner. The party will serve as a fundraiser for ACFF, who is going into its 13th year of bringing outstanding conservation films, filmmakers, and educational programs to Shepherdstown and beyond. A few very special items will be live auctioned to add to the fun and coffers.

Space is limited and tickets are $50 per person, $200 for two at the Sponsor level, and $600 for a reserved table of 8. To purchase tickets, visit http://conservationfilm.org/special-events/spring-2015-fundraiser-ground-operations/.
