Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley is gearing up to celebrate its 13th Annual Kids Nite Out on Thursday, Sept. 13.

The event is being held at the Guadalupe Club located at 4655 11th St. from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm.

Many fun activities are planned for the evening including dinner, crafts, games and much more.

Children will work with an adult mentor on numerous projects throughout the night.

Kids Nite Out aligns with BGCSMV’s overall initiative to help kids and teens become more actively engaged in their community, live a healthy lifestyle and achieve academic success.
“At Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley we close the opportunity gap for kids in our community, enabling them to build a great future for themselves,” says Jeremy Deming, Executive Director, BGCSMV.

“Kids Nite Out is a great opportunity for kids to have fun and foster strong relationships with caring adult mentors. This event is just one example of the amazing work we do each day to enable kids and teens to reach their full potential by graduating from high school on time, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and practicing healthy lifestyles.”

Adult mentors are still needed for the event.

The cost to mentor is $25 per adult.

The fee includes dinner and a Kids Nite Out t-shirt.
