Light Up the Night 2017

Whether you're currently in the Nido Community or not, ALL are invited to Nido's annual community walk for cancer, Light up the Night on Friday, December 1, 2017, 8:00 pm to midnight. We hope to see our friends in town for SAAC Swimming and the Nido Alumni Association too!

Light Up the Night is a fundraising event to honor and celebrate the lives of those who have or have had any type of cancer. At 9:00 pm, all will take a lap around the field in honor of our loved ones.

The 2017 Light Up the Night funds will be allocated towards funding Veronica Gonzalez's treatment to alleviate the financial burden on her family. Veronica worked at Nido for 15 years as one of our dedicated and beloved janitors – its now our turn to give back.

Concessions will be run by various school groups and will include choripan, pizza, baked goods, hot and cold drinks.

LED balloons are available for purchase for $6,000 on pre-sale (Wednesday, November 29 - Friday, December 1 from 2:30pm in front of the Admin building). Balloons may also be purchased at the event for $7,000.

ENTERTAINMENT
