Girls Incorporated of Monroe County is hosting their annual Holiday Hoopla this Saturday, from 9 am to 11:30 am. Holiday Hoopla, held since 2001, gives Girls Inc. an opportunity to provide a fun, family event to the local community.
Director Kristi McCann says there will be a breakfast donated by Buffalouies and for $5, everyone gets to participate in activities on the square. The activities include gingerbread house decorating, crafts and a boutique for children to buy Christmas presents for their parents.
McCann says Holiday Hoopla is also a way for the organization to provide information about Girls Inc., raise money for the program, and give local families an opportunity to come together during the holidays and participate in activities they can all enjoy.
Girls Incorporated is a nonprofit organization that, according to its website, inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through a network of local organizations in the United States and Canada.
Girls Inc. in Bloomington has been serving girls in Monroe County since 1975. They provide after-school and summer enrichment, educational programs, and sports leagues to young girls and women.
Holiday Hoopla takes place this Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Fountain Square Mall.
