TelAve News/10791845
FORT MYERS, Fla. - TelAve -- Better Together, a nonprofit dedicated to families and children, is hosting a Parents' Night Out event on Friday, June 9 in Fort Myers.

The program offers parents, grandparents and other caregivers access to a couple of hours of no-cost care for children ages infant through 17 years old. Better Together will provide background-checked volunteers in addition to dinner, games and fun for children to enjoy while parents are away.

"It's important for parents and guardians to have time to take a break, run errands or simply get things done that have been on the back burner," said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. "Parents' Night Out comes alongside families to help parents recharge with the reassurance that their children are under the supervision of background-checked volunteers. It's a time to do whatever helps you while we entertain the kids."

Parents' Night Out will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at First Assembly of God, located at 4701 Summerlin Road in Fort Myers.

To register for Parents' Night Out, visit BetterTogetherUS.org/PNO-Registration or call 239-470-2733.
