The Fifth Anual Monster Mash For Literacy Bash

Pasted Graphic 1

This Saturday!

That’s right, you have less than a week to prepare for the premiere event of the halloween season. The
Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers, their friends, family, and minions will be invading Berkley, MI. The Fifth Annual Monster Mash for Literacy bash will be held at the Berkley VFW post located at 3025 Coolidge Highway between Catalpa (11 1/2 mile) and 12 mile roads.

For those not familiar with the event, let me give you a quick run down. Your favorite horror writers will be getting together to put on a shin dig of frightening proportions. There is, of course, dancing and great music. Yes, there will be drinking (bring cash -- it is a cash only bar) including a signature drink created by yours truly. There will be a costume contest with prizes (the world famous Boners!) for Funniest, Most Original, Scariest, Sexiest, and Best Overall costumes. There is a 50/50 raffle where you can win cash. There’s a guessing game where you can win candy. Best of all, there is a Penny Auction with amazing prizes including signed limited editions of books by Dean Koontz and Bentley Little, gift certificates for massages and tattoos, and much more.

Why do we do all of this? We do this to promote literacy. The proceeds of the evening go to the
Dominican and Siena Literacy organizations. That’s right, all of this fun you are having results in people learning to read.

How can you possibly resist?
