Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CKEC), a leading entertainment, digital cinema
and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, today announced the scheduling of a special
December 7 (10:00 a.m. local time) community fundraiser that is being
co-hosted by the Red Cross at Carmike’s Sunnyland Cinema 10 (40 Sunnyland
Plaza, Washington, IL 61571).
That morning the Red Cross will collect all monetary donations, which will
benefit the many families affected by the tornado that touched down in the
Washington area last month. Attendees are cordially invited to join fellow

funds that will benefit this very important cause.”
