Santa is partnering once again with the Lincoln High School’s Sober Grad Night committee Dec. 13 at a breakfast fundraiser.

“One-hundred percent” of profits raised at the breakfast will go to this year’s Sober Grad Night, according to Terri Furrer, Sober Grad Night’s publicity coordinator.

The annual Sober Grad Night, started in 1992, provides a safe and sober celebration alternative on graduation night to graduating Lincoln High School seniors at McBean Park Pavilion.

“We want to keep our graduating seniors safe,” Furrer said. “We thank the Lincoln community for all their support.”

The annual party includes food, drinks, entertainment, photo booth, games and prizes. Every student receives gifts, including laptops, I-Pads, Kindles, gas cards, printers, fishing poles, bicycles and cash.

“The theme is a surprise every year. Students don’t know what it is until they arrive,” Furrer said. “That makes it more fun and exciting.”

The committee holds several fundraisers year-round, including Bunco night, poker night, tamale sales and raffles.

“Breakfast with Santa” will be at Kim’s Country Kitchen from 8 to 11 a.m. Dec. 13.  The $10 breakfast includes pancakes, scrambled egg, bacon or biscuit and gravy. Both meals include a photo with Santa per person.

Kim’s Country Kitchen is at 537 Lincoln Blvd. in Lincoln.

Tickets can be bought in advance or at the door.

For more information and/or to buy tickets, call Tina Mosier at 743-6262 or Toni Sanders at 207-5670.

After the Dec. 13 fundraiser, the next Sober Grad fundraiser will be selling tamales for Super Bowl weekend.

For those residents who want to donate to Sober Grad Night but who will not be at the Dec. 13 fundraiser, Furrer suggests calling Lincoln High School at 645-6360.
