Ghouls and fiends, ladies and gentlemen: SERVE invites one and all to its first-ever Halloween Charity Ball.
No, not the crystal kind. From 8 p.m.-midnight Oct. 25, the local charity is hosting an adults-only spooky party at the Brick District Playhouse.
SERVE director Courtney Harrison said the tickets themselves are the fundraiser — attendees won't be solicited for further donations and can just focus on having a good time. She hopes to make the ball an annual event.
"The goal is to make the Halloween Ball so much fun tickets will sell themselves every year," she said in a press release.
The cost of admission includes free food, keg beer, dancing and entry into the costume contest. Costumes aren't required for admission to the party, but they're encouraged. Those who opt in may have a chance to win cash prizes.
Tickets can be purchased for $35 each or $60 for a pair in advance from any SERVE staff or board member, or online at www.ServeHalloweenCharityBall.com. VIP tickets are available for $60 each or $100 for a pair. VIP guests get table service and a complimentary bottle of wine in addition to the free food, beer, dancing and costume party. Guests must be 21 to enter.
SERVE provides assistance with food, transportation, life-saving medications and clothing. For more information about the party or the organization, contact the SERVE office at 573-642-6388.
