While Williams High School's graduation is still six months away, the Parents Who Care Committee is already hard at work raising money for Grad Night 2014.

Senior Grad Night started in 2008 after five teenagers died in an alcohol and drug related accident in 2007.

"It's an event that was organized just to keep the students safe on graduation night," said organizer Joyce McNelly.

To raise money for the event, the Parents Who Care committee has planned several fundraisers.

The committee is selling raffle tickets for a Ruger SR-556 AR15 rifle and a Sinister Bow (PSE). Tickets are $10 apiece or three for $20 and are available from any senior parent. Organizers will draw the winning tickets on April 15.

Later this month, the committee is planning a hot chocolate sale at the Williams Christmas tree lighting on Nov. 30.

In addition, Grad Night will earn 20 percent of sales at the local Pizza Hut on Dec. 7 from 4 to 8 p.m. Diners must present a Grad Night voucher with payment to qualify for the fundraiser.

The Parents Who Care hope to raise about $20,000 by May 1 for Grad Night 2014. All donations to Grad Night are tax deductible.

"It takes quite a bit of money to put on that Grad Night," McNelly said. "Helping keep the students safe on graduation night is the main reason for it and that's why we'd like people to donate."

More information about the fundraisers is available from McNelly at (928) 699-7085.
