Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Lawrence`s family has organised a special screening of the second part of `The Hunger Games` series for a cause.

The funds generated from the screening will benefit St. Mary`s Centre which offers day training for adults with intellectual disabilities.

"It`s open to all those who want to donate. We are using the screening of the movie as a platform to raise money for St. Mary`s Centre," Lawrence`s sister-in-law said in a statement.

"We were introduced to St. Mary`s Centre through a family friend and Andy (Jennifer Lawrence`s very close friend) too will be going there. So it`s very close to our hearts. That`s how Jennifer said that she wanted to do this," she added.

`The Hunger Games: Catching Fire` is the second installment of `The Hunger Games` trilogy.

The film focuses on Katniss Everdeen, played by Lawrence, who returns home after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. It also stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

`The Hunger Games: Catching Fire` will release in India Nov 29.
