Member volunteers lurking about Assistance League® Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, whose haunts can be found at 3521 Golden Gate Way in Lafayette, boast of “fangtastic” finds to help you recreate a Halloween event so near and dear to everyone’s viscera. Starting on Tuesday, October 1 until Saturday, October 19, you can transform your home into a ghoul infested crypt, as well as unearth racks and racks of costumes, masks, and make up. (Unfortunately, the racks are not available for in home use.) Make your witch come true and consider “donating blood” as a result of this one time shopping encounter.
All eyes will be on you as you recreate a “Spook-tacular” miasma, a “Fright Night” that promises to chill the skull. Forge a myriad of pumpkins, wall hangings, garlands, and lights, all artfully draped from well-chosen limbs, that will virtually flood your guests’ senses and entice them to stay for a spell. Likewise, invite your neighbors in for a bite; they will undoubtedly love you to death and claw their way onto next year’s guest list!
When you donate and purchase the abovementioned, lovely items, you help fund Assistance League of Diablo Valley’s eight philanthropic programs. The chapter also has a Speakers’ Bureau whose members present our story to various organizations, free of charge. For more information about scheduling a speaker to present to your group, please visit our website: diablovalley.assistanceleague.org, find the About Us column on the left hand side of the page, and select Speakers’ Bureau.
