Jack in the Box restaurants are celebrating Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge’s 25th anniversary in 2014 with sales of a limited-edition Dashing Jack antenna ball/ornament. Net proceeds will go the nonprofit organization.
The Dashing Jack antenna ball/ornament sports a red-and-green plaid bow tie and a top hat adorned with a sprig of holly. Dashing Jack is fashioned with a braided loop on top and pre-drilled on the bottom to allow for display on a holiday tree or a vehicle antenna. The antenna ball/ornament is available with either a red or green top hat, and is on sale for $1 plus tax, as long as supplies last.
This is the inaugural Jack in the Box holiday promotion benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge. Funds raised from the promotion will support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build decent, safe and affordable homes for people in need. Habitat for Humanity has served Greater Baton Rouge since 1989 and has built more than 300 homes.
Bring your child to Bluebonnet Swamp for two days of fun during the holiday break at Autumn Harvest Camp, Nov. 24 and 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. They’ll be treated to nature-based activities such as arts and crafts, live animal encounters, hikes, games and a themed afternoon snack. Each day will be composed of different activities, and campers will need to bring a bag lunch and drink each day. In this camp, children will learn about the changing colors, nature explorers and living off the land.
Costs range from $44 to $53; $10 for extended care.
