Halloween Howl: a not-to-be-missed event organized by local group

Halloween fun in support of Stettler and District Crisis Aid

By Jessica Jones For the Independent

Get in your Halloween fun for a good cause, with a fundraiser in support of the Stettler and District Crisis Aid, organized by three local women who have joined forces to plan a spooktacular event on Oct. 26th.

The Halloween Howl, held for adults only at the Stettler Agriplex (4516 52nd St.), will feature a hot pepper challenge, best costume prizes for men, ladies and couples, live entertainment and refreshments.

“Come have some fun,” said Andrea Lee, co-ordinator of Crisis Aid. “Dress up, bring some friends, there will be great entertainment and come support a good cause.”

The Halloween Howl is being headed up by three local charity organizers who have joined forces to create ‘Raise the B.A.R.’

Lee said the Stettler and District Crisis Aid, which is a last resort financial assistance program that helps individuals and families in a crisis situation, was contacted by the Raise the B.A.R ladies to partner up for the Halloween Howl.

“B.A.R” stands for Brandi, Aurora and Roxanne.

According to the Halloween Howl event page, Brandi, Aurora and Roxanne, “Noticed some programs badly needing assistance within our community.

“We have decided to create some joint ventures and help fill in those gaps to help them to fulfill their ever-growing needs,” they stated.

The Halloween Howl will also feature a ‘Best Decorating Corner’ which is open to all businesses, not-for-profits, churches and youth groups. This gets people together to design and decorate a designated area. It is $20 to enter with half of those funds going to the Stettler and District Crisis Aid and the other half go to the winner.

Meanwhile, live musical entertainment will be performed by Junktion 56 and Garrett Gregory.

Tickets are available for purchase online at Eventbrite, or from Wells Furniture and Home Hardware.

Two tickets can be purchased for $30 until the end of September.

After Sept. 30th, tickets are $20 each, or $25 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m.

The organizers are also looking for sponsorship or donations of gifts in kind and prize donations. For more information, visit the Halloween Howl event on Eventbrite.
