Thousands of people showed up on the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday, September 16 to celebrate the first annual Boys & Girls Clubs Day for Kids. Performers included Billy Ray Cyrus and daughter Miley, stars of the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana, and the HOPE kids.
The Day for Kids began as a way to encourage adults and children to spend time together. According to a survey done by the Boys & Girls Day for Kids, 39 percent of youngsters want their parents to work less, 43 percent want their parents to spend more outdoor time with them and 68 percent say their parents or guardians are the most important role models in their lives.
