Carson City Holiday Crawl to be held Saturday
December 1, 2016
The Carson City Sheriff's Office and Fire Department are hosting the second Holiday Crawl to benefit the Holiday with a Hero event.
The crawl takes place Saturday, Dec. 3.
"We have two missions with this event," said organizer Carson City Bailiff Meliah Gonzales. "One, we want to raise as much money for Holiday with a Hero since this is our big fundraiser for it, but we also want to bring business downtown to support our local shops who have been a big support for us. We collaborate together and meet both of our needs."
Holiday with a Hero takes Carson City students in the McKinney-Vento Students in Transition program on a Christmas shopping trip with local law enforcement and public safety officials. Children receive a $100 gift card to Walmart where they will shop for Christmas presents with a public safety partner. The McKinney-Vento Students in Transition program serves children who live in motels, cars, campgrounds, grandparents or double up with other families.
With the crawl ticket, participants receive a 14 ounce stein, one free drink, plus food and drink specials at dozens of restaurants, bars and shops around downtown.
In order to compensate for those who want to enjoy the dinner discounts, check in for the crawl will start at 4 p.m. this year so people can start eating before they drink if they want. The drink discounts and bands will start playing at 5 p.m. This year, the crawl will have two bands playing; Stereo Galaxy at Telegraph Square and Whiskey Heroes at McFadden Plaza as well as live DJs in some venues.
