Ginger the Movie


Sunday, December 8th  |  4:30 - 7:30 PM



Ginger Mathis is a recent college grad with a passion for life but an aversion to reality. Working a less-than-ideal job and dating a not-so-great guy, Ginger isn’t sure what direction her life is headed in. When she's suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer, Ginger struggles to balance her illness, her treatment, and all the complicated components of her totally unsettled life.

Ginger was inspired by co-director Melissa Boratyn’s ongoing battle with breast cancer. The goal of the film is to hopefully make cancer suck just a little bit less. (Trailer)

This screening is generously sponsored by Raila & Associates, PCGinger is also proud to partner with the American Cancer Society. A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit ACS. We expect this event to sell out, so get your tickets now! If the screening does not sell out, a limited amount of tickets may be available at the door on the night of the event for $15 each.
