A Toast to Tinseltown: Ten Years of Terror is a Halloween party – so come dressed in your best costume!

Some costumes ideas/suggestions:

If you like to get dressed up, wear a fancy “Cocktail Costume”

If you want to really get in the Halloween spirit, ghoul yourself out from head to toe and keep your friends guessing who you really are.

If you’re more of the class clown and want to get a good laugh, think up a fun costume that will get the crowd roaring.

Because we are a children’s charity and security is incredibly important to us, we ask that you have NO REAL OR FAKE WEAPONS when considering your costume. Please avoid anything that might be considered controversial or inappropriate as well. Photos taken at the event may be posted on social media with the charity being tagged.

As our guests, you get to vote on who takes home the prizes.  Upon arrival you’ll be given three sets of bead necklaces.  Give your beads to the person or couple you think has the best costume or best red shoes!
Best Costume – Purple Beads
Best Couples Costume – Yellow Beads
Best Red Shoes – Red Beads

Please park in the WEST parking lot only.  Parking is adjacent to the building.  All guests will enter by the flagpoles and walk the red carpet to enter.
