Red Cross Naracoorte is hosting a movie fundraiser

The Australian Red Cross is hosting a screening of Little Women this Friday night.

Little Women tells the story of a family living in the Civil War era Massachusetts.

The movie illustrates four sisters who drifted apart over the years but were brought back together due to one of them developing a devastating illness.

Jo March reflects on her life and shares the loving story of the March sisters - four women each determined to make the most of their lives and live them on their own terms.

With a PG rating, this is a perfect family-friendly movie and is a great chance to teach children about time during the Civil War.

Naracoorte Red Cross treasurer Daphne Burford told the Herald all proceeds will go to the Red Cross.

"There will be champagne ... nibbles prior to the film at 6.30pm and the film starts at 7.30pm at the town hall on Friday night," she said.

There will be a raffle on the night and tickets are just $1. With heaps of great prizes up for grabs, everyone is encouraged to dig deep in the couch cushions for some spare change.

"We've had a great response from a few of the businesses. We've got two pillows to raffle from MiniJumbuk, a $100 voucher from Trends of Naracoorte, and some wine from the Commercial Hotel."

Starring Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen and Meryl Streep, this 2019 movie will suit the whole family.

The coming-of-age drama was written and directed by Greta Gerwig and is the seventh film adaption of the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott.

Tickets for the screening are $20 each and this includes refreshments. They can be purchased from Terry White Chemist on Smith Street or at the door on the night.

The Naracoorte Red Cross branch is determined to bring the town more fundraisers and events in 2020.
