Laurel Boys & Girls learning center hosts fundraiser

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Staff, administrators and members of the Better Boys and Girls Community Learning Center in Laurel invited the community to join them Saturday night to help raise funds for that organization.

Specifically, the first "Community Night Out Rally" at the Cameron Center was seeking to raise funds to restore the an old building on Magnolia Street that was recently donated to the organization.

Club administrators are hoping to turn that structure into a facility for summer programs and other activities for underprivileged children.

The rally featured food, music and lots of activities for children.
