Labor Day weekend is upon us, and many are feeling excitement and anticipation for the weekend: barbeques to be had, friends to see, and a nice time to relax before getting back into the groove of school and work as Summer comes to an end. Another reason to be excited for this weekend is that The Naperville Jaycees are putting on the Last Fling Festival! The festival runs from Friday through Monday, and it is a good way to have fun while feeling good about the way you are spending your weekend.
The Last Fling offers a way for you to not only treat yourself, but to also treat others. As an attendee of the Last Fling, you are supporting local charities and non-profit organizations, helping them raise money so they can continue their services to those who need them most. HSP will be one of many non-profit organizations that will be helping at the Last Fling, along with receiving funds from the event. The money we receive from the event will be put towards our Feed The Kids program, which helps needy children and their families during the summer months when food is scarce.
There are many fun activities each day of the event, such as food eating contests, wine tasting, a carnival,
the Fling Mile Race, bingo, and other various games. Bands will be featured every night, including
ARRA on Friday, O.A.R. on Saturday, Smash Mouth on Sunday, and 7th
Heaven on Sunday. The Last Fling will
also be holding a Labor Day Parade on Monday, which is sure to be a good time. Family
So, if you’re looking for something fun to do this Labor Day weekend, consider going to the Last Fling one or all of the days it’s being put on! It’s sure to be a good time, and you can feel great knowing that you’re making a difference in your local community through helping charities and non-profit groups like HSP. From all of us here at HSP, we want to wish a wonderful Labor Day weekend, and we hope to see you at the Last Fling!
