Have Faith? Win Tickets to Mitch Albom Movie Premiere

Nov. 16 event at the Emagine in Royal Oak will benefit two local charities. Just tell us about faith to enter to win.

Do you have a little faith? If so, you might want to enter our contest to win two tickets to the premiere of Have A Little Faith, based on Mitch Albom's best-selling nonfiction book.

The movie, which was filmed in Detroit, is described as being about a life's purpose; about losing belief and finding it again; about the divine spark inside everyone. The story was sparked by a request made of Albom to deliver the eulogy at a rabbi's funeral, which prompted him to to do some soul-searching.

Actors Laurence Fishburne, Bradley Whitford and Martin Landau are expected to attend the premiere on Nov. 16 at the . Winners of the Have a Little Faith contest will receive general admission tickets to the premiere as well as an autographed copy of Albom's book.

After the screening, the movie's stars, director Jon Avnet and Albom will discuss the film. Contest winners will be able to view the "talk back" in the theater in which they watched the movie via simulcast from the VIP theater.

Those who would like to rub elbows with the cast at a meet-and-greet reception with food and beverage, view the movie, enjoy the live "talk back" and receive a signed book can purchase a VIP ticket for $125. Proceeds benefit A Hole in the Roof Foundation and the Rabbi Albert Lewis Fund.

Volunteering with a faith-based community service organization is a wonderful way to show your faith in action. The satisfaction of knowing that your time and effort will positively impact someone's life is worth more than words can express. Faith in action shows God's love for all through us. I believe that serving and loving others is the reason we exist.

I have a tremendous amount of Faith and don't think I would have gotten thru life without it; that and my wonderful mother, and awesome friends. My father committed suicide approx 6 yrs ago and I was devastated. My world was turned upside down. God, and faith, having hope, being positive, and having faith that my dad is happy and healthy, and in heaven is what has gotten me thru this terrible tragedy. I hope to be able to see this amazing movie! :)

Hello, my name is Alley. I am 16 years old and devote my life to following Jesus! I hope that one day I can become a youth minister, so that, one day I can teacher other kids the love of God and show them what Jesus did for us like I have learned. I work with three, four, and five year olds every week at church. This is my passion and my true calling from God, also, it is the first step to a life of preaching His Truth. :)
