On Monday December 16th the Missoula Community Theatre invited the families of the Missoula based Washington Companies to take a tour of the chocolate factory with a special presentation of Willy Wonka. Employees from Washington Corporations, Montana Rail Link, Envirocon and Modern Machinery enjoyed a special evening with their families that included everyone receiving a Wonka Bar from The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation AND 25 golden tickets in the Wonka Bars! Golden ticket winners received a cozy Foundation blanket and Starbuck’s gift card.
Over 250 employees and their families attended the special performance. Proceeds from the ticket sales were matched by the Foundation with a total amount donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Missoula of $2100. Additionally, employees were asked to bring non-perishable food or pet food items and several boxes were filled and donated to the Missoula Food Bank and AniMeals.
Complimentary tickets to the show were given to several children from the Watson Children’s Shelter and Youth Homes and each also received a Foundation blanket and Wonka bar. Thank you to MCT for the magical, musical evening! A fun, fabulous and fantastic evening was had by all!
