CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Friday, August 3, The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, internationally supported by the Church of Scientology, hosted its First Annual Back to School Movie Night at Osceola Courtyard in Downtown Clearwater. The event featured a school supplies giveaway, a showing of the movie School of Rock and education of The Way to Happiness, a common sense guide to a better living. There were nearly 200 guests in attendance.
“In The Way to Happiness, L. Ron Hubbard wrote the importance of flourishing and prospering,” said Ms. Tanja Cranton, Executive Director of the Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay. “School of Rock underlined this message as the youth in the film overcome obstacles to win a ‘battle of the bands’ competition.”
Families came to the movie night from different parts of Clearwater, representing all ethnic backgrounds. Guests visited the charity booths, learning about each one: Shihan School of Survival, Obi One Global Ministries, Global Community Tennis and Feed Our Children Ministries.
The youth also participated in the many activities set up for them as part of the event. These included face painting, rock painting, temporary tattoos, hula hoops and jumping in a bouncy house—which was always full.
After enjoying the activities, guests stayed for the showing of School of Rock.
