The 2nd Annual Family Fun and Community Game Night presented by Getting Ahead graduates is slated for Saturday, April 14, from 5-8:30 p.m., at the Bain 50+ Center, 5470 Ruth Keeton Way in Columbia. Activities include arts and crafts, ice cream sundae station, relay contests, games and prizes, raffle drawings and music. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per family.
Presented in partnership with the Howard County MultiService Center Office of Community Partnerships, the Family Fun and Community Game Night is a benefit for MakingChange financial wellness programs, which are attended by Getting Ahead participants.
Getting Ahead is an outgrowth of the Bridges Out of Poverty initiative, run by the Board to Promote Self-Sufficiency to change the culture of poverty by training service providers and helping people in poverty to improve their personal resources. Getting Ahead participants attend an eight-week program to identify strategies to gain long-term stability. Graduates of the program continue to meet for various activities.
The public is invited to attend the Family Fun and Community Game Night. Registration is not required. For information, call 410-313-0224.
