If you’re hungry for fresh, delicious popcorn, you are in luck. The Thelma D. Jones Breast Cancer Fund (TDJBCF) and Southwest Neighborhood Assembly Youth Activities Task Force (SWNA YATF) have joined forces for a Double Good popcorn fundraiser with proceeds to benefit Southwest DC youth ages 5-25 for cultural and technological opportunities as well as to teach breast health classes in our neighborhood schools. 

A portion of the proceeds will also help defray the costs of a visit to see Arena Stage’s production of The Migration, featuring the renowned troupe Step Afrika!. 

The TDJBCF and YATF will earn 50% of popcorn sales and divide the proceeds on a 60-40 basis, respectively. The fundraiser will last for four days, from Monday, July 8, at 6:00 p.m. – Friday, July 12, at 6:00 p.m.
