Drive through service as well as seated service within the fire station will be available to those who attend; a donation of $10.00 per dinner is requested. Dinner will include World Famous BBQ chicken cooked by the City of Fillmore's Finest Firefighters, chili beans, salad, and a dinner roll. All proceeds benefit the Grad Nite Live organization. This fundraising event is one of several planned events by organizers of Grad Nite Live to generate the approximate $23,000 required annually to support this organizations needs.
Grad Nite Live was established to keep graduating seniors of Fillmore High School off the roads following graduation and in a safe, alcohol and drug free environment following their commencement.
Moments after graduation and a few minutes of quick visiting with family and friends, participating seniors are loaded onto a charter bus and transported to Long Beach Harbor where the beautiful vessel "The Entertainer" awaits them. On board they enjoy great food, dancing, and entertainment throughout the night and morning. The graduates are then returned to Fillmore the following day exhausted from the previous night's celebration and are fed breakfast. Finally graduates are returned home to catch up on much needed sleep following the safe celebration of their twelve years of achievements.
Those persons and/or organizations who would like to donate to Grad Nite Live may call Shirley Spitler at 805-524-2131 or Raelene Chaney at 805-524-4909.
