Canyon Crest Academy Grad Nite calls for boxers, community support


Canyon Crest Academy is gearing up for Grad Nite 2015 and the students need the community’s help! Each year, a committee of parent volunteers works tirelessly to put on this event for graduating seniors. It is a safe, drug and alcohol-free event held on the CCA campus — providing the students with a private, secure venue to celebrate with classmates. The committee tries to keep the costs down so it can be affordable as well — and this is accomplished through generous donations from parents and the community.

You may be wondering, why do they need boxer shorts? Well, one of the fun activities planned for CCA’s Grad Nite is Boxer Bingo. The winner of each game wins a pair of fun, colorful boxers (like those being modeled in the photo by some of the Grad Nite Committee volunteers). Needed are boxer shorts of all sizes with cool designs — superheroes, cartoon characters, animal prints, etc. — unused, of course!

Local retailers are encouraged to donate items and gift cards for the raffle drawings that are held throughout the night. Restaurants and bakeries can donate snacks — multiple food and drink stations need to be stocked. Anyone can donate bottled water, raffle prizes and gift cards (perhaps those cards you received at the holidays that you aren’t planning to use). And of course, cash donations are always welcome. All vendor donors will be acknowledged on the CCA Foundation Grad Nite website.
