VALPARAISO | Join the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County’s annual Day for Kids celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 21 at Zao Island, 1050 Horse Prairie Ave.

Every year Day for Kids events are held at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country as a way to honor children and emphasize the importance of meaningful time spent with caring adults. Locally, hundreds of children and their families participate in Day for Kids to have fun together and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Tickets for Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County’s Day for Kids celebration are $3 each for the first 400 tickets sold and then $6.50 each for the remaining available tickets. BMO Harris Bank is presenting sponsor of Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County’s Day for Kids celebration.

“Thanks to the generosity of BMO Harris Bank, we’re able to provide a fun day for children and their families that can fit in nearly any budget,” said Ryan Smiley, interim president of Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County. “Day for Kids is really about taking time out from busy schedules and showing kids just how special they are to the adults who care about them.”

Each ticket is good for one round of mini-golf, 20 arcade/batting cage tokens, and a choice of one additional attraction such as go-karts or laser tag. Day for Kids is a rain or shine event.
