ALTON — The Riverbender.com Community Center is opening its doors for second- through fifth-graders one Saturday a month.
Until now the center has focused on programming geared toward teens ranging from grades 6 through 12. Kid’s Night Out will be an opportunity for mom and dad, and maybe even grandma and grandpa, to take a break from the normal Saturday night routine and enjoy quality time without the younger kids. They can take a break from cooking dinner, not worry about cleanup and really have a quality night out on the town or a quiet evening to themselves while their children are safe at the community center in the presence of responsible chaperones.
Admission for the night includes dinner for each child and a night of fun. Kids will be able to enjoy all the games of the center, which include pool tables, foosball, darts, air hockey, pinball, table tennis, pop-a-shot, PS3, Wii, Xbox, Xbox Kinect, Play Station Move, Guitar Hero, DanceDanceRevolution, and a variety of board games or watch the movie of the night in the center's movie theater.
This event is not limited to just members and is open to the public. Cost is $10 per child, if pre-registered, or $15 at the door. Families with 3 or more children should call and ask about special pricing.
The Riverbender.com Community Center is a 15,000-square-foot facility on three levels offering a safe place for kids to hang out with their friends or make new ones, where kids can be themselves without bullying or intimidation from others. The center's No. 1 goal is to provide youths the chance to be themselves.
