Youth Alternatives’ annual Valentine’s Day Dance will be held Saturday, February 9, at the Oil City VFW Post No. 464. The doors will be open at 7 p.m. and the dance will have live music by Chuck Justice & The Junkyard Lawyers starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and non-refundable. They are being sold at both Youth Alternatives’ locations, the Oil City VFW and at the Venango Chamber. You must be 21 years or older to attend.
The event benefits Youth Alternatives’ children’s camping program. Each summer, 150 youth, multiple volunteers, and Youth Alternatives staff travel by bus to Rock Creek, OH, were they spend a week at Camp Beaumont.
The camp is free to youth in the Venango County area. Youth Alternatives is able to give youth this experience through contributions from local donors.
The Valentine’s Dance is one of the agency’s largest camp fundraisers of the year. More information is available by calling Youth Alternatives at (814) 676-5785 (Oil City location) or (814) 346-0188 (Franklin location).
