NORMAN, Okla. – Children who are still trying to recover from the devastation they witnessed firsthand will have a chance to be kids again, thanks to a few police departments and a national organization.
Tornado victims from Plaza Towers and Briarwood Elementary Schools will be treated to a party, at no cost to them.
Students, teachers, faculty, staff and their immediate families are encouraged to join in the fun at the Hey-Day Entertainment Center Tuesday, June 11 and Thursday, June 13 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
They will be able to play in a multi-level laser tag area, an 18-hole mini golf course, a rope course, a variety of video and arcade games and enjoy a pizza party.
The National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues Inc. will cover the cost of the two-day event.
The National PAL Inc. has partnered with the NBA National Basketball Retired Players Association to host a private basketball camp for the affected school district on June 13 from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The camp will be held at Moore High School and is only available to students in the 6th grade and younger.
The events are also made possible by the Oklahoma City and Moore Police Departments.
