Annual evening of entertainment seeks participants

CHICKASHA — The Grady County Interagency Coalition is preparing for its annual game night in April, which will feature free immunizations for children.

"Kids just need to have a legal guardian with them and a shot record," Rachel Myrko, spokesperson for GCIC said.

The Oklahoma State Department's Caring Van will be hand to administer the inoculations.

The game night will start at 5 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. on April 18 in the Chickasha Atwood's parking lot.  

"The purpose of this event is to celebrate celebrate families and children in the community," Myrko said.

At the moment, Myrko said she is trying to solicit more businesses to get involved with the game night.

"It's basically free marketing for them," she said. "They can give away prizes or appropriate promotional material."

Myrko said fair type games such as putt-putt or ring toss are encouraged.

Last year, the University of Science and Arts Oklahoma Math and Science Club put out chess and board games for attendees to play according to Myrko.

A group known as "Safe Kids" will also be on hand to check car seats for safety regulations and potential recalls.

"The child needs to sit in the car seat and if they find it to be unsafe the will actually give the parents a new seat," Myrko said.

Community donations are also welcome, Myrko said. Last year a board game package and a Nintendo Wii package were given away at the event.

"It does not cost anything to set up a game booth," she said. "We just ask that you supply a game and personal to man the booth. If you would like prizes given away at your booth you will need to supply those as well."

Interested businesses can contact Myrko at rmyrko@gpccrr.org or call her at 405-250-3360. All businesses must register by March 1.
