CHESTERTON | Children and their families are invited to an Open House hosted by Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County-Duneland Unit on August 8, 2013. The Open House will be held from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Duneland Unit (135 Lincoln Avenue, Chesterton). Guests are welcomed to tour the club and meet staff members and then stay to enjoy a special showing of Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph”. Youth members of VOICE will have a petition available for children and adults to sign to rid tobacco images from children’s movies. Half of all youth-rated movies contain scenes of tobacco use, and movies influence approximately 390,000 teens to start smoking every year.

Free hot dogs and refreshments, a variety of games, and a limited supply of school supplies for children will also be available at the Open House.

Join the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County-Duneland Unit for a fun night with the family and help get tobacco out of Hollywood! For more information, call the Duneland Unit at (219) 926-9770.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County-Duneland Unit is open every day after school and provides high quality youth development programs, free tutoring and homework assistance, fitness and recreation activities and much more for children in grades K-12. Annual memberships are just $25.00. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.
