Event celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2024.

My name is Shelley Hollingsworth, and I coordinate the annual Inner City Children's Safe Halloween Party with the help of Inner many inner-city volunteers. We provide a safe environment for children to come to and participate in fun, games, costume contests and, of course, a meal. 

As this is our 30th anniversary event, we are looking forward to creating a very special event! We want to make this event bigger and better than our previous celebrations, and we are looking to your organization to help us make this an amazing family event in our neighbourhood! 

We are asking for donations of Halloween candy, costume prizes (toys), and we also will be needing a Covid-friendly meal (such as wrapped hot dogs) and water bottles, chips, and hot chocolate. 

We are also looking for some community-minded volunteers to help run the games and distribute food and candy. Last year it was held outdoors, and we look to set up a similar event this year, with social-distancing and sanitization available for the safest possible event. 

I am also looking for pictures that anyone might have of the previous Halloween parties. If you can share with us I would love it. And, I am inviting any families who.have attended the last 30 years to stop in and say hi. We'll be at the McCauley Rink from 5-7 p.m. on October 31st.

If you would like more information, or to donate, please call me at: 780-722-5001
