Make it an over-the-top Halloween at Fanatical Change Foundation’s annual costumed cocktail party, Politicians, Playboys and Performers Halloween Gala, at BBVA Compass Stadium on Friday, October 28, 2016.
For this election year, Fanatical Change has continued to amp up its annual fundraising shindig. In the process, the group will be raising funds to surprise and help deserving Houston area families in need.
Costumed attendees will live it up at a Halloween bash in at BBVA Compass Stadium in EaDo, home to the Houston Dynamo. The party will be filled with entertaining costumes, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music, multiple DJs, interactive photo booths, a silent auction filled with unique items, and more.
Attendees are encouraged to dress up like politicians, playboys, or performers (real or fictional). However all costumes or snazzy cocktail attire will be welcomed.
Tickets are limited and will sell out before the end of the month.
The Cause & Beneficiaries
In the meantime, all money raised at Politicians, Playboys and Performers Halloween Gala will be pooled to create several donations.
Families who have just experienced the worst tragedy of their lives will be selected by the board of the Fanatical Change Foundation the week of the party and will be awarded every dollar raised by the event. Attendees will be able to watch a video of the selected families receiving their donations the very next day, Saturday, October 29, 2016.
Throughout the year, the Fanatical Change Foundation hosts events to raise funds that provide life-changing assistance to families who’ve just suffered a life-altering tragedy.
Because you never know when and who tragedy will strike, recipient families are always selected from the headlines by the foundation’s board in the days before the event. Every dollar that is raised is then given directly to the recipient the following day.
Connecting donors with the people they help, the organization offers its donor an immediate and true glimpse into the impact that their dollars make. The organization was founded in 2009, prompted by the devastation that Hurricane Ike wrought on many Houston families in 2008.
To date, Fanatical Change has raised more than $900,000, which has all gone directly into the pockets of 90 Houston families who were undergoing great hardships.
The organization hopes to pass the $1 million and 100 families mark after this year’s event.
365 Things to Do in Houston is pleased to serve as a sponsor of Politicians, Playboys and Performers Halloween Gala event, connecting Houstonians, supporting great things to do in the city, and making a real impact on local lives in the process.
