The Spokesman-Review

Parents looking for a Saturday night without their children can drop them off at the Kids’ Night Out fundraiser sponsored by the Central Valley High School golf team.

Organizers say the evening of entertainment, games and crafts was a huge success last year. This year’s event will be Dec. 15 from 6 to 10 p.m. at CVHS, 821 S. Sullivan Road.

Registration is $12 per child or $10 each for multi-child families. Activities include open gym, cheerleading, games, video games, crafts, ball games, golf putting practice, freeze tag, bingo, movies and snacks. The night is for children in kindergarten through sixth grade.

Children will be supervised and entertained by CVHS golfers, their families, coaches and wives and the school cheerleaders.
