Fargo, N.D. (September 9, 2008) – The Advertising Federation of Fargo-Moorhead (FM AdFed) will kick off its 2008-09 season at the Fargo Theatre on Tuesday, September 16 at 5:30 p.m. The event will include free food, a cash bar, prizes and a free showing of the film “Crazy People.” This 1990 movie features Dudley Moore as a burnt out advertising executive who ends up in a mental institution.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour featuring hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. A trivia contest with prizes begins at 6:30 p.m. and the film screening is at 7:00 p.m. This event is open to the public. You need not have an AdFed membership to attend.
