Night of the Tiger

Open House Night of the Tiger Family Fair

  • We love to offer services for students such as physicals & health exams, eye exams, dental checks, haircuts, nail painting, backpacks, college recruitment, family services, and much more. Many of our students are not able to get these services before the start of school, and Night of the Tiger is a great opportunity for the community to help support these students! The area community steps up big every year to provide needed services for Hollister students.

  • Night of the Tiger is a wonderful community event for our Hollister families. We need many volunteers to make this event a positive experience for students and their families. Volunteers are needed to help with various items throughout Taste of Hollister and the Family Fair as well as with set up before the event and clean up after. There are many different volunteer opportunities areas across the event.
