LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Halloween is not the only fun kids will have this month. The Boys and Girls Club of Henderson is ensuring kids get double the fun this October with the Fun Day for Kids event.
More than 100 Boys and Girls Club kids will be paired with more than 120 adults from the community. The pairs will participate in activities such as indoor and outdoor games, a BBQ, and photo shoot opportunities with local mascots, Hey Reb, Cosmo and the Duke. Face painting and balloon art will also be available.
Entertainment will include Tropicana's Laugh Factory headliner, Murray SawChuck, and Michael Turco from Saxe Theater. Following the games and activities, Chet Buchanan will hand out medals to the top teams and prizes to all of the kids.
But there is much more to the event than just medals and prizes. Many of the children who participate are from single-parent homes. The one-on-one interaction with an adult is incredibly meaningful for them.
Henderson Public Safety units will also be on hand, giving demonstrations to event-goers.
Fun Day for Kids is this Saturday, Oct. 6 at the John Kish Club in Henderson near Basic High School. The event is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
