A dozen families showed up for the 2nd VRE “Camp In” last weekend to eat pizza, play games and watch movies in the gym while raising approximately $150 which will be used to enhance the educational experience of VRE learners. Thanks to Aakash, Viral, Umesh, Srini, Harish, Rajani, Ryan S., Ryan F., Aamir, Anup, Kiran and Tarun for attending.

The dads also played poker even though many had never played before that night. Ryan S. did such a good job of teaching poker rules and strategy to the novice players that several of the rookies actually beat him! A huge thanks to Ryan for helping out! Eventually, everyone settled down for a good nights sleep. A few photos from the event are attached to this message, and more are on the gallery page .

One of our fellow VRE dads is putting on a special holiday festival this year and he has generously offered to turn this into a fund raising opportunity for the Dads club.Now Christmas Flyer

“Now Christmas” is a holiday extravaganza which transforms a 5000+ square foot production studio into a first class Santa’s Village complete with various workshops including festive arts & crafts, holiday snacks, live performances, the true meaning of Christmas, face painting, pictures with Santa and more. This is a high-quality production designed specifically to give children a memorable experience with their family and friends.

This event is not only created with the purpose of spreading Christmas cheer, it is also a fund raising event; built into the price of every ticket is a $5 donation for the VRE Dads club. “Now Christmas” will be open to the public from December 13-24, 2014 so pick a date to take your family to this fun, festive event, and raise funds for VRE at the same time. Click here to purchase tickets for “Now Christmas”!
