The Santa Clarita Valley Boys and Girls Club hosted their 8th annual “Day For Kids” event this past Saturday at Newhall Park.
From 12pm til 5pm kids along with their families were able to come down to enjoy a day full of free games, entertainment, food, raffle give-away, and snow cones.
“Every year for me is trying to explain to some of the new people the definition of free,” said Jim Ventress Chief Professional Officer of Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. “No catch, enjoy your families and enjoy your kids, make it a day for the kids.”
“Citibank loves to be a part of the community,” said Marjorie Blietz Vice President of Citibank. “This was a perfect thing for us to sponsor.”
With an estimated 4000 to 5000 people attending over 45 organizations were on hand to help contribute to this free event.
“It’s so expensive these days especially when you have a family of two or three kids,” said Steven Rice of Crossroads Community Church. “The reality is that it is a expensive proposition if you would like to do something with the kids.”
“We like doing this because it gives us an opportunity to help provide families to come to have a great time,” he said.
