Halloween parties. They really bring out the best in every kind of person. You’ll see costumes that were thrown together last minute in a storm of creativity, ending up in either Halloween fashion-design genius or ridiculousness. You’ll also see costumes that existed only in the dreams of their makers months in advance, finally coming to fruition for their big moment. If you love Halloween as much as I do, then you understand that Halloween parties are about two things: the costumes and the music. Here’s one that’s not to be missed, not only because it’s going to have these two things, but because its going to exceed the limits of a Halloween party: by benefitting those in need!
You heard me, this Halloween party (which is going to be super swanky and at the W Hotel) is benefitting Goodwill Industries of Central Texas. Goodwill Industries, if you’re not 100% familiar, works to provide job-related services and opportunities for people with barriers to employment, which is pretty awesome, considering employment availability is still an enormous issue these days. Come dressed up in your finest, creepiest, ridiculous, awesome and ridiculously awesome costume and become one Austin’s most divinely wicked. How do you do that? By simply purchasing a ticket to the party! They’re $150, which if you think about it, is not a that huge a donation to start off with, plus you’ll get all the perks, access to this amazing Halloween party at the W, exquisite food designed by the W’s executive chef, delicious beverages and awesome music. So basically, you’ll be donating to a great cause while simultaneously having a unique and exciting Halloween experience.
I mentioned music, didn’t I? Well, if you haven’t heard of the group playing the event, then frankly, you need to get out more (especially to this event!) Soul Track Mind, Austin’s premiere soul group, known for their residency at the late, great TC’s Lounge, will be providing smooth tunes for your dancing delight at this bash, and believe me when I tell you, they put on one hell of a show! Check them out here:
So here’s a rundown of what you need to do to be a part of this event:
1) Put together your costume, and make it look GOOD.
2) Buy your tickets to the Ghoulwill Ball (if you and 5 friend buy together, they’re cheaper)
3) Go to the Ghoulwill Ball on Friday, October 28th at the W Hotel
4) HAVE AN AMAZING TIME while helping others!
Friday, October 28th at the W Hotel Austin
See you there!!
