Board game fans bringing holiday cheer for local kids

A group of board game fans are hoping to bring some cheer to Bartholomew County children’s holidays.

There will be a 24-hour Board-Game-a-Thon starting Friday night at Terrace Lake Church.

Participants can start playing games at 6 p.m. tomorrow night until 6 p.m. Saturday evening. Tyson O’Haver is organizer of the event.

O’Haver  says that the group is a bunch of big kids playing with toys and hoping to spread that cheer.

There will be a library of games on hand to play, or you can bring your own.

Participants are asked to donate at least $20 to play and organizers suggest getting sponsors to support you.

There will be game demonstrations, a raffle and silent auction.
