Did you realize that Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year? So, if you want to avoid making emergency Valentine’s Day plans and scurrying to find a babysitter at the last minute, the time to make those reservations for a romantic evening is now.
Relay for Life of Tri-Town Team “Sole Survivors” is hosting “Valentine’s Day Date Night,” a babysitting fundraiser especially for Valentine’s Day, so you are guaranteed to have a group of dependable adults watch your kids while you step out for a while to celebrate the holiday with your romantic partner.
Team Sole Survivors will watch your school-aged children at the Knights of Columbus in Mattapoisett from 6:00 through 9:00 pm for a $20 donation. All of the proceeds raised will go toward the Relay for Life of Tri-Town, an event to benefit the American Cancer Society.
“I am always trying to come up with new ideas to raise money for the American Cancer Society,” said Sole Survivors Team Leader Marybeth Tripp. “I wanted to try something different, and what better way than to let parents enjoy a night out, which we all need every now and again.”
The team will entertain the children by making crafts, playing games, and watching a movie. They will even feed your kids for you, providing them with free pizza donated by Nick’s Pizza, in addition to snacks.
If you need a little extra time out, no problem! Sole Survivors say they will keep the kids busy until 10:00 pm for an additional donation of $10.
Space is limited so reserve the kids’ spaces now. You can contact Marybeth Tripp at 508-991-9870 and leave a message, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Knights of Columbus is located at 57 Fairhaven Road in Mattapoisett.
The Relay for Life is on June 13, 2014. Participants will gather at the Old Rochester Regional High School for a number of ceremonies, when participants will walk to honor the lives of those who battled cancer, and celebrate survivors who have triumphed over cancer.
