Hometown Family Radio and Mid-Plains United Way’s #NebraskaStrong Radiothon to help with flood relief in Nebraska.
It’s Child Abuse Awareness Month, so we want to thank all of you for helping in our fight to end child abuse with our yearly community event. Please join Guardians of the Children for our 3rd Annual Family Appreciation Day for a day of fun and education. There will be free food, a cake walk, games, Ms. Bzz Balloons, bike giveaways and Fun Jumpz. We’d love to see you there!
This event is sure to make your taste buds sizzle as you sample mouth watering foods and drinks from across the State of Nebraska. All proceeds from this event go to benefit our partner non-profit agencies - donating has never tasted so good! Enjoy live music from Big Daddy B & The Wrecking Machine while you play games like corn hole and jumbo jenga. There will also be a number of unique vendors, so you can satisfy that itch to shop. Remember that for every purchase you make, a portion is donated back to Mid-Plains United Way to help our partners. Don’t want the night to end? We have permission from Ramada to keep the music on past 7p.m. So, be sure to join us at the 6th Annual Taste of the Plains event for a true taste of “The Good Life.”
