On Thursday, February 7, Palatine Park District hosted the sold-out annual Date Night event for families. The event for parents and children ages 3 to 12 was held in the gym at Birchwood Recreation Center, 435 W. Illinois Avenue, in Palatine. Attendees were invited to come dressed for the Valentine’s theme to enjoy a night of dancing and dining.
Grade Power Learning of Palatine was the presenting sponsor for the event. Additional support for the event included Air Expressions, who provided the balloons for the event and d’Vine Wine & Gifts, who donated sparkling grape juice. iStar Photo Booth helped provide lasting memories to participants and the DJ from DJL Entertainment kept the excitement going throughout the night. Dinner was catered by Pizza Bella, and included salad, pasta, garlic bread, pizza, and dessert.
“Thank you for a wonderful evening, my daughters and I had a great time (as usual) and I thought that this year’s event was a huge success,” said Palatine resident and attendee Aaron Del Mar. “Your team ran an amazing, well organized and enjoyable event. I know the time, planning and hard work it takes to pull off a seamless event and I commend your whole team on a job well done. Thank you for making a memory for me and my girls. See you next year.”
