GIBSON COUNTY — Community members looking for family fun this weekend can also help out local organizations at the same time.

Fundraisers are set all weekend benefiting North Gibson Education Foundation, Gibson County Animal Services and Lyles Station.


The North Gibson Education Foundation will host a movie night outdoors at Tiger Stadium. Gates will open at 6:45 p.m. and the showing of “Aladdin” will begin at 7:05 p.m.

Cost is $3 per person and concessions will be available.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs or stadium chairs. Masks will be required when unable to socially distance.


Gibson County Animal Services will hold a fundraiser and open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The event will feature a K-9 Officer ready in a Fido Fetch Fundraiser at 3 p.m. as one of its main events.

This will take place at the animal shelter house south of Princeton and will raise funds for the Harley’s Heart Medical Fund.

Throughout the day there will also be about 20 vendors at the Gibson County Youth Soccer Complex. Local photographer Hannah Whitehead offers portraits from noon to 2 p.m., and GCAS volunteers will be honored with awards at 3:45 p.m.
