The drive-in theater event

Tiered pricing for entry packages for each movie
includes basic entry for one car at $100, a welcome package including popcorn and soft drinks for $180 for one car, and an advanced package for one car that includes masks, popcorn, soft drinks, and candy for $360.
“Covid-19 has presented us with a unique opportunity to create a family-friendly, fun experience for the community to support JARC and those we serve in a safe, socially distanced event,” said Shaindle Braunstein, CEO of JARC.
Corporate sponsorship opportunities include
early entry and a prime parking spot, a video message or a commercial onscreen prior to the movie start, a logo onscreen during arrival time, company promotion on JARC social media, and a company logo on every bag of popcorn distributed by JARC at the event.
