I’ll promise you this upfront: I will do my best to get through this without a single pirate pun.
The much-anticipated fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise is set to premiere soon, and Disney is going to make the most of it. The studio is planning on donating the proceeds from the big premiere event in Disneyland to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America!
Disney has been a longtime partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which aims to help kids live healthier lives, get a better education, and get more involved in the arts, along with many other goals. In fact, Disney has provided millions to the charity over the years, and has funded the opening and renovation of a number of centers.
In addition to the proceeds from tickets, the all-natural and (for some flavors) vegan-friendly Pirate’s Booty brand will be providing their delicious snacks at the premiere and will donate a portion of their profits to the Boys and Girls Clubs as well. Watching “Pirates” while eating Pirate’s Booty? How fitting!
Tickets to the premiere are on sale and can be purchased here, but sadly they cost $1,000 each! Of course, it’s for a good cause and it should be one heck of a premiere party, so it could be worth the extra cash if you’re a big fan. Plus, there’s a chance you could end up in close proximity to Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom (ladies) or Keira Knightley (gentlemen).
It’s great to see Disney putting their best foot forward here and giving to a worthy cause. It’s a great pick for the Boys and Girls Club of America too, since it’s a kid-friendly movie.
Wanna know why it’s kid-friendly?
Because it’s not rated “Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!”
…sorry guys. I tried.
