On April 18, one week before World Malaria Day 2013, Spread the Net Co-Chair Rick Mercer invited supporters to A Night Out For Nets in Toronto to raise awareness about malaria. Thanks to HBO Canada and Skating Panda Productions, Spread the Net hosted an exclusive invite only pre-screening of the powerful HBO original film Mary and Martha. Teri Hart from The Movie Network and HBO Canada did an incredible job as Master of Ceremonies. Thank you to everyone who came out to show their support!
Written by Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and starring Oscar® winner Hilary Swank and Oscar® nominee Brenda Blethyn, Mary and Martha is the story of two mothers who find a way to make a difference by dedicating themselves to the cause of malaria prevention.
