Tickets for the 2014 Davis Grad Night Celebration are now available for purchase online through the Davis Grad Night website at http://groups.dcn.org/davisgradnight/tickets. Scholarship tickets are also available through school counselors. Grad Night gives graduates a fun, safe and sober way to celebrate completion of their high school education.

Nearly 90 percent of graduates attend each year. So, as you’re thinking about the ideal stocking stuffer or gifts for Hanukkah, don’t forget a ticket to Grad Night 2014! Tickets are $75, which covers the cost of all activities, food and drinks for the entire evening. Prices go up after Jan. 1, to $90.
