Adult volunteers needed
Tickets are available for Ramona High School’s Grad Nite — an all-night, entertainment-filled event held after graduation ceremonies on June 12.
Grad Nite will be held from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, June 13, at Parkway Bowl/Boardwalk in El Cajon, and is open to graduating seniors. Each senior may bring one guest between the ages of 16 and 20, said organizer and school board trustee Kim Lasley. Buses will transport the students from Ramona High to and from Parkway Bowl.
“We do this so the kids can have a fun, safe night to spend with their friends,” said Lasley.
Tickets for the event are $70 through June 7 and are on sale at the high school during lunch. On June 8 the price goes up to $85 each. Tickets will also be on sale during the senior breakfast and after graduation practice Monday and Tuesday, June 10 and 11, said Lasley.
The tickets include free bowling and billiards, arcade, casino-style gaming tables, photo booth, caricature artist, henna tattoos and laser tag. Entertaining graduates will be Hypnotist Barry Jones and strolling Illusionist Nick Ivory.
“He’s a phenomenal artist,” Lasley said of Ivory. “It will be a lot of fun. We never had this before.”
Photographer Angela Rhodes of Ramona will snap pictures throughout the night and post them on the RHS website for grads to download and print, added Lasley.
Food, including pizza, will be served.
“We’ll have all kinds of munchies through the night and the morning,” said Lasley.
Lasley said she could use parent volunteer help with check-in or chaperoning, but she must know in advance. Interested parents must contact her by June 10 at 760-788-1438.
