Organizers are looking for donations to support the 2019 Grad Blast celebration the night of Pine River-Backus High School's graduation, Friday, May 24.

Grad Blast is an all-night activity for seniors the night of graduation, the goal of which is to provide safe entertainment for all seniors to enjoy together without the risks associated with other types of celebrations on graduation night.

The event depends on volunteers and donations. It requires a great deal of planning, money, prizes, food and decoration. Without donations of time and money, none of the event would be possible. The only funding available is from donors as the event is not funded by the school.

Checks can be made to the "Grad Blast Committee" and mailed to: Grad Blast Committee, ℅ Charity Crannell, PO Box 610, Pine River, MN 56474.

To arrange pickup of donations, to volunteer or for more information, call 218-587-8003 or 218-251-1430.
