Dear Editor,

Every year for the last 23 years, Gilroy High School students have enjoyed a safe memorable “Grad Night” hosted by the parents and community through donations and fund-raisers.

The seniors can’t leave once they arrive; they spend the night playing games, playing on big toys, dancing, eating, and end with a hypnotist show. Only senior class members are invited. They have one last party together and memories for a lifetime. In 1988 parents established “Grad Night” due to the huge problem with drinking and driving by the seniors on graduation night and the precious lives lost.

This year because of the economy “Grad Night” fundraising has been especially difficult. We think the Grad Night Party is important, and we hope you do as well. If you ever enjoyed a Graduation Night as one of Gilroy High School’s graduates in the last 23 years or had a family member who benefited from a safe and memorable experience, we hope you would assist us to create another great memory for this graduating class. We need your help Gilroy. Please send donations to: GHS Grad Night 2011, P.O. BOX 545, Gilroy, CA 95020; Tax ID# 77-0123255.

Brian Dauenhauer, Gilroy
