Lobby against hunger

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

TWO north­ern sub­urbs women are hold­ing a movie fundraiser for The Hunger Project in Hil­larys this month.

Alki­mos res­i­dent Jo Rao and Casey John­ston, of Nol­la­mara, will host an ad­vanced screen­ing of Home Again at Event Cin­e­mas in Whit­ford City shop­ping cen­tre.

The ro­man­tic com­edy is about a sin­gle mum, played by Reese Wither­spoon, whose new life in Los An­ge­les takes an un­ex­pected turn when she takes in three un­likely house­guests.

Ms Rao is on the WA board of The Hunger Project as well as mar­ket­ing man­ager for Sil­ver Chain, while Ms John­ston is study­ing law and pol­i­tics at Mur­doch Uni­ver­sity.

Ms Rao said the char­ity was em­pow­er­ing women to work to­gether to break the cy­cle of hunger in other coun­tries.

“Tick­ets to the screen­ing on Oc­to­ber 16 are just $25 and that money could fund adult lit­er­acy train­ing for one woman,” Ms Rao said.
