Season Finale: Chamber Night At Sunset on the Square – Friday August 28, 2015
The City of St. George and Write It Up! will host a special event at Sunset on the Square to as our season finale – St. George Chamber Night. The event will celebrate local businesses in the St. George area.
St. George, UT – Sunset on the Square (SOTS) will feature the movie Legend of Zorro on Friday, August 28, 2015 at Town Square Park in Historic Downtown St. George at dusk as part of the Annual Chamber Night festivities. Sunset on the Square is a free community event sponsored by local businesses and organizations.
“This has been another incredible year for Sunset on the Square.” explained Event Coordinator Dawn McLain, Owner of Write It Up! This Friday will be the season finale event featuring lots of “extras” for attendees to enjoy. One of the additions to the Friday program will be a visit from the “Breaking the Cycles” team. BreakingtheCycles.org is dedicated to raising awareness of homelessness in America and helping families, veterans and individuals break out of the cycle of homelessness.
At 6:30, Carol Hollowell, Executive Director for Switchpoint Community Resource Center will be biking into Town Square Park to update us all on her coast-to-coast nationwide bike ride to raise awareness about homelessness. Hollowell is peddling around the country with several goals in mind. Said Carol, “We are looking to raise $300,000. Bob (Hollowell’s husband) and I will be riding a minimum of 100 miles a day, stopping at homeless shelters along the route; meeting with local area and state officials across the country; updating via social media each day; and telling the stories of real people experiencing homelessness.”
In support of this effort Sunset on the Square and Utah Nonprofits Association members will be collecting canned and dry food goods to donate to the new pantry at Switchpoint Community Resource Center. Attendees who bring food donations will receive an additional opportunity drawing ticket to win one of the evening’s many great prizes. This week prizes will include several tickets for Tuacahn, along with gift certificates and lots more! KCSG Television and St. George News will also provide a Dinner at Pizza Factory and a Family Pass for Fiesta Family Fun Center.
The City of St. George will also feature two safety programs associated with their anti-texting campaigns. Information and materials will be available on site for the Heads Up Thumbs Up and Stop The Texts, Stop The Wrecks programs. “We are really pleased to partner with the City to bring this vital information to our community. Public safety is a key priority for all of us, and I am looking forward to supporting these programs in any way that I can.” said McLain.
The Elks will be featuring multiple lawn games throughout the evening in addition to their face painting and crates. Games include mini-basketball, hula-hooping and a bean bag toss.
“The final addition to the schedule is a real treat! Shortly before the movie will start, Brad Harr & Associations will be presenting a check to the St. George Children’s Museum from the Wonka Bar contest featured on Nonprofit Night in June.” The contest was a tremendous success, and the funds raised by vendor Brad Harr & Associates truly reflect the collaborative spirit that Sunset on the Square promotes.
