North 5th Street will be closed to auto traffic between Avenue E and Holland Avenue for the duration of Artwalk 2016, and will host a variety of family activities presented by Project Graduation, including:
Project Graduation is an all night, alcohol and drug free event for the graduating class of 2017. It is sponsored by the senior parents of Alpine, who are responsible for raising large amounts of money to provide entertainment, activities and prizes for the graduates. In return, all we ask of the graduates and their friends is that they come and stay with us all night so that we can ensure their safety and well-being. This not only takes our graduates and their friends off the streets, but, provides a safe healthy way for our graduates to celebrate their accomplishments.
Each year, the task of raising funds becomes more and more challenging: therefore, we are contacting our local businesses and asking for help by providing a monetary donation to our group. A donation of this sort would not only help us to provide a safe and healthy environment, but it will also help to provide a variety of prizes to entice our graduates to come and stay all night with us.
