The 2016 Leadership Monroe class will hold a Luau Fundraiser from 7 p.m.--11 p.m. on Friday, July 22 to benefit Operation All-Aboard Playpark.

Tickets for the event, which will be held at the Monroe County Conference Center, will cost $500 per table, $40 per person or $65 per couple. The event will include food, fun, dancing, a cash bar and a silent auction. All proceeds from the event will benefit the all-abilities playground addition to the Monroe County Recreation Department.

The 2016 class decided earlier this year to pursue building an all-abilities playground as its class project. Class president Daniel Stickler said he hopes construction on the playground will begin by January 2017.

For interviews and questions, contact Stickler at 478-808-6234.
