Everyone paid SO-cents to watch a play, two rap groups, a movie on wildlife, and free popcorn. "We made over a thousand dollars doing this since fifth grade started this in 1978," said Hanns Von Bosse. "It's for a good cause, too," he said. "The most important thing is we had fun while doing it," he added. All the money went to the "International Fund For Wildlife", the organization that spearheaded signing the treaty to stop clubbing of baby harp seals.
