Raleigh #BlackPantherChallenge

$6,009 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 156 people in 10 months
The #BlackPantherChallenge is soaring across the country. Thousands of people are donating to give young bright minds a chance to see the Black Panther movie that will hit movie screens February 16th. I noticed that Raleigh didn't have a GoFundMe set up and I believe the kids in this area should get a chance to see the movie too, and money shouldn't hinder that.

The donated funds will be, specifically, used to: 1) pay for entry of teens to see 'Black Panther'; 2) enable the group of youth/teens to eat while at the movies;  3) Pay for any theater funds if we should raise enough for private screening 4) Any additional funding will be donated to 100 Black Men Triangle East Mentoring Program. I will withdraw the money to my account and purchase movie tickets at our movie night with mentees on February 18th at Marble Museum IMAX Theater. 

The recipients of the tickets will be students who participate in the 100 Black Men mentoring program and other students in Raleigh/Durham area.
