LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - For many looking to celebrate without alcohol, the SURF Center's Year End Party is a great option.
The clean and sober party provided people with a fun atmosphere to dance and ring in 2013. People also played games and enjoyed food and soft drinks.
Several hundred people were expected to attend. Organizers said the party is a 20-year tradition that allows people who struggle with addiction to have good, clean fun.
"There is a place to go to have fun, to be with your friends, to be with people who care, without going out and getting drunk and getting in trouble," Marvin Hill said.
It was a packed house for the pay-off a project two years in the making.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
Donations are being accepted to help around 300 seniors receive a holiday gift.
