Together the child-adult pairs played indoor and outdoor games, enjoyed a BBQ lunch, got their faces painted by members of National Charity League, took pictures and interacted with Henderson Public Safety Assets (SWAT, K-9, Traffic Units, Fire and Rescue Units), met characters like Hey Reb, The Duke and Cosmo, and  stopped by the Balloon Artist’s Station (Balloons With A Twist), and enjoyed the entertainment.

Michael Turco and Nathan Burton were the headlining act that performed after everyone returned to the gym. After the acts, Chet Buchanan acted as emcee and helped run a general prizes giveaway that allowed each of the kids to pick their own prize. In the grand prizes drawing 10 lucky kids won prizes like TVs and Wiis, Kinects and Nintendo 3DS’s. A Medal Ceremony rewarded the top winners of each game.

Hey Reb helped Chet hand out all of the prizes and medals. Then after the event, which ran from 11am-2pm, the adult volunteers attended an after party held at the Beach House Grill and Bar (the old Half Shell).
