There are only 100 tickets for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Big Night Out 2016 fundraiser coming up Saturday evening.

The evening planned as a prom for adults will help to raise funds for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters in-school mentoring program and takes place at Signal Point Gaming on Saturday, Feb. 13, says the event and co-ordinator Chelsea Hamblin.

“The main thing is that people enjoy a fun night out for a good cause,” Hamblin says.

She says the prom (ages 19-plus) evening will include “waves of appetizers,”  dancing to the music  of the local cover band Run Home Jack, raffle prizes, and games with prizes.

Between dance sets there will be prizes awarded for games such as spinning wheel, and top and tail coin toss. There will be three rounds of top and tail with the big prize being a computer tablet.

There will also be 10 gift baskets raffled, a cash bar, and free rides home provided by the Boys and Girls Club.

For people who may not own formal dresses or suits, she says Glass Slippers is opening its doors to adults for the Big Night Out 2016.

Tickets are $30 each or two for $50. If all goes well, Hamblin says they hope to raise $3,000 to $5,000 for the Big Brothers and Big Sister’s In-school mentoring program in Williams Lake which she co-ordinates.
