Suwanee’s Big Backyard Bash, an April 25 interactive, “fun-raising”event to benefit the Gwinnett County United Way, will pit the area¹s biggest-hearted backyard athletes against one another, offer wacky interactive play opportunities, and provide information about area summer camps.
The fun begins at noon with wacky games like horseshoes with toilet lids, oversized Twister, and basketball with rubber chickens. The World’s Greatest Backyard Athlete competition starts at 1 p.m. Contestants will raise at least $250 each, which will be donated to the Gwinnett County United Way to support children who may not be able to afford summer camps. Applications are available at www.suwanee.com.
[The City of Suwanee invites local summer camps to participate in this event, to be held at Town Center Park. Participating camps will have the opportunity to share information about their programs and coordinate one of the wacky games available (think giant Tic-Tac-Toe or Twister or playing horseshoes with toilet lids). For more information, contact Suwanee Events Coordinator Amy Doherty at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770/945-8996.]
Carrying the interactive theme through the evening entertainment, the headline performer is a karaoke band. From 6-8 p.m., Metalsome will be your own personal back-up band. Participation is limited; pre-registration will be available a the event. See a schedule for all 2009 events.
