At the Esquire, Care Package Collection for Our Troops This Sunday


This Sunday promises to be a big day at the Esquire Theatre. As part of Cincinnati’s newest holiday tradition, the Second Annual Interactive White Christmas event will be taking place. Both screenings of the classic movie White Christmas starring Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney have already sold out, but you can still celebrate the spirit of Christmas by showing some love for military personnel currently assigned overseas.

To go along with their White Christmas theme, the Esquire Theatre is working with the Yellow Ribbon Support Center to collect items and send care packages to our troops. If you’d like to help, you’re welcome to bring cards, letters and much-appreciated items for Active Duty Military Personnel this Sunday, December 16, from 12:30 pm to 9 pm.

The items to donate include:
