MARC/DART fundraiser screening this Friday


The Jasper Journal and South Pittsburg Hustler are proud to host the screening of Beyond the Myth: The Truth about Pit Bulls July 21 at 6:00 pm at the Princess Theater on Elm Avenue in South Pittsburg. The filmmaker, Isabelle Sherrill, will also be on hand the night of the screening. An additional opportunity exists for a VERY select number of people to attend a dinner with Sherrill at 4:00 pm, before the documentary showtime at 6:00. That dinner will be at Stevarino’s (across from the Princess Theater) and requires a prepaid ticket that can be dropped off at the Journal/Hustler Office at 307 Elm Avenue in South Pittsburg or called in by credit card to 423-837-6312.

Whereas the documentary arcs on the specific example of pit bulls, the film looks at the effectiveness, and lack thereof, of breed specific legislation and touches on optional legislation. It also tells the stories of several families that have been affected by pit bull bans.

All profits are going to be donated between Marion Animal Resource Connection (MARC) and Marion County Disaster Animal Response Team (MCDART)
