Neary SOS is holding its annual Noodle Night fundraiser on March 1st. But they are hoping families will get their registrations in by a week from today – to guarantee their spots in popular minute-to-win-it challenge sessions.*

Phys Ed teacher Ms. Nash has created 24 fun stations with such challenges as Stack Attack, Ping Pong Pizza Pie, Beach Ball Bingo, and Breakfast Scramble. She asked me to make special mention of the crowd-pleasing “Face the Cookie” challenge. (Scroll to the bottom for a YouTube video showing kids have fun with that.)**

Of course, as the event name suggests, the night revolves around a pasta dinner. And organizers have lined up a great mix of offerings again from popular area restaurants with meatballs, pasta, rolls, salad and more.

Businesses donating include: Southborough House of Pizza, Tomasso’s, Kennedy’s, Bertucci’s, Arturo’s, Uno’s, Roche Bros, and Olive Garden.

Entry costs $5 per person. Basket Raffle tickets will also be hocked that night. Of course all proceeds go to Neary SOS (Southborough Organization for the Schools).

Registration is due Wednesday, February 14th. Click here to open the printable form. Send it and payment into school with your Neary student. (Stuck at home with the kids because of the snow day? Make them fill out for you today!)

Dinner is available from 5:00 – 8:30 pm. But game sessions are broken into three session slots:

  • Session 1: 5:20 – 6:00 pm
  • Session 2: 6:20 – 7:00 pm
  • Session 3: 7:20 – 8:00 pm

*Note: Families who don’t pre-register can still pay to enter at the door that night – but their kids may not be able to play in the minute-to-win-it challenges. The number of slots per session are limited. So, sign up in advance to secure your spot.

**Face the Cookie challenge: Contestants try to use their face muscles only to move a cookie from their foreheads to their mouths.

I don’t have images of Neary kids putting their faces to work. But someone shared on YouTube a fun video from a fundraiser making use of the same challenge.
