Smart Money Month Film Screenings: "Lucky"St. Ignatius Science Center 115
Friday, April 25, 2014 @ 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Students, faculty, staff and Rockhurst friends are invited to the free screening of Lucky. The film offers a glimpse into the reality behind the fantasy of lottery winners. They come from an amazing range of backgrounds, but all of their lives are radically transformed by the same thing - an enormous lottery jackpot. With prize money reaching into the hundreds of millions, some lives are changed for the better, some for the worse. And together, their stories show us what happens when the fantasy turns real. Do we become what we dreamed we would or what, deep down, we really are?
After the screening we will discuss home ownership and assistance, credit and financial planning. The focus of the film fest is on expanding audience members’ understanding and awareness of financial concepts and available community resources to help meet financial challenges impacting low-and-moderate income individuals and families. (The film is subject to change.)
