On May 31, Studio Movie Grill welcomed Real Life Women Superheroes to our Northwest Highway location for a red carpet early screening of Warner Bros. Pictures Wonder Woman. The twelve women, who were selected from over 700 nominations, were selected based on their dedication to helping others, resiliency in the face of tough circumstances, and professional achievements.
WE CAN ALL BE SUPERHEROES IN OUR COMMUNITIES, EVERYDAY.
Each of the women were presented with SMG’s Opening Hearts and Minds Award and a $1000 check to their chosen charity.
