Project Celebration Is Near For East Texas Seniors

Lufkin High School needs to raise $15,000 for its Project Celebration.  It takes a lot of hard work, planning, and money to host the event.

Project Celebration is an all night alcohol and drug free party just for graduating seniors.  It's a lot of fun for students because no one goes home empty-handed.

Co-chair Cristina Peitersen, said, "We lock the kids in, we feed them both dinner and breakfast [because] they stay until about six in the morning.  We have a casino going on, we have bingo going on, so, all night long they have something to do."

Project Celebrations are planned all across East Texas.  They're held the night of graduation.
