On Saturday December 7, at 5 p.m., SUNY Ulster will host its annual holiday family film screening. This year’s film is the hilariously uplifting, “Elf” starring Will Ferrell as “Buddy” the eccentric human raised by Santa’s elves who embarks on a fun-filled journey through New York City in search of his family and the true meaning of the holidays.
The event is open to the public and admission is $5 at the door, children are free. All proceeds benefit the Ulster Community College Foundation’s Lights for Learning Emergency Student Fund, which provides SUNY Ulster students with emergency grants, loans, and scholarships that are often pivotal for students to continue on their educational paths.
According to Foundation Executive Director Lorraine Salmon, “I have witnessed time and again how the generous donations to our Lights for Learning program have kept a student from having to withdraw from college due to an unforeseen financial emergency.”
There will be surprises for all guests. In addition, Santa & Mrs. Claus will be at the event for meet, greet and photographs.
