TICKET DISTRIBUTION PROCESS

The Omaha Star will give tickets to 25 youth, ages 13-18, on Saturday, February 10, from 2:00-4:00 p.m.  The tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis at the Omaha Star office, 2216 N. 24th St. Only one ticket per youth will be given. 

Youth 13-16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is willing to take them to the Marcus Majestic Cinema, 14304 W. Maple Road, by 9:30 a.m. and pick them up from the theater at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 17. Youth 17-18 must provide a student I.D.  There will not be seats available for parents or guardians in the three auditoriums the Omaha Star has reserved. 

However, there will be adults and Omaha Police Department personnel chaperoning the event.   



Our children deserve to believe that they can save the world, go on wild adventures or accomplish the impossible.  They also deserve to see super heroes who look like them.  We are now challenging you to donate to our GoFundMe effort to buy tickets to see the next Marvel film to grace our theaters.  The funds will also be use to purchase snacks, movie posters and door prizes.

Please make your donation before February 10th.

The cost breakdown:

190 Student Tickets - 1,140.00

15 Chaperone Tickets - 90.00

Student Snacks - popcorn, drink & candy - 2,470.00

Chaperone Snacks- popcorn & drink - 161.00

Movie posters/door prizes - 1,139.00

This campaign is run by Frankie Williams, Deb Shaw and Phyllis Hicks, all are employees of the Omaha Star. Frankie is the mastermind of the event, Deb manages social media and Phyllis  is the managing editor, and Phyllis will be the one handling all the donations raised on this campaign.

Funds exceeding our goal will be donated to the Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center.

Thank you!

After all was said and done: funds collected, over 200 youth impacted by viewing the history making Black Panther movie, and enjoying goodies while doing so, and expenses covered, the Omaha Star donated $6,482.28 to the Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center’s (MDBMSC) Dr. Marguerita Washington scholarship fund. Plans are underway to open the application process and to award scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each to qualifying students majoring in the field of communications. The scholarships will be awarded in May.

But, that’s not the end of the story. The donations just keep coming! The Direct Impact Fund has awarded our campaign a grant of $3,637, restricted for the purpose of making a donation to the Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center’s Dr. Marguerita Washington scholarship fund. Their generosity combined with that of our community will allow the MDBMSC to benefit students as they endeavor to fulfill their educational quests.

On behalf of the Omaha Star newspaper, Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center and the students benefitting from your support, we thank you.
