West U Families to Campout This Weekend For Father’s and Flashlights Fundraising Event
West U families will pitch their tents and camp out this weekend for the fifth annual Friends of West U Parks Father’s and Flashlights fundraising event.
The campout will be held on the West U Little League Tri-Sports fields. The fields are adjacent to West University Elementary School on University Boulevard.
Check-in begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Campers will be able to participate in numerous activities including scavenger hunts, fishing, pony rides, a rock wall and putt-putt golf, amongst other things.
As night falls, families will gather for campfire songs and ice cream treats. The event will conclude with an early breakfast the following morning.
This year’s top underwriters for the event are Direct Energy, Russo Services, Inc., Goode Company Taqueria and Oaks, Hartline & Daly, LLP.
Last year’s event raised more than $52,000 for West U parks, which was $15,000 more than the prior year’s event.
Co-chairs of the event are Sara and Chip Edgecomb, Maggie and Dax Garza and Amanda and J.R. McGee.
