Time Once Again To Trick Or Treat For United Way

KSCB News - October 25, 2012 7:14 pm

Children of all ages can trick or treat at the "Halloween Celebration 2012"

from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at the Southgate Mall in Liberal.

Sponsored by the Mexican-American Ministries Liberal Care Center, the event

will also be a fund raiser for the Seward County United Way. Admission will

be $1 per person at the door for United Way.

This year’s event will also feature a "spooky" concert by the Southwest

Symphony Society starting at 5:30 p.m. The concert will include music from

the Harry Potter movies, "Phantom of the Opera," "The Sorcerer’s

Apprentice," and "Rosin Eating Zombies from Outer Space," as well as other

selections. The concert is expected to be about 45 minutes long.

"We had more than 600 people at last year’s event," said Dora Ponce of

Mexican American Ministries Liberal Care Center. "We had a very safe and fun

event for the children and we raised more than $600 for United Way. We’re a

United Way agency and we just wanted to give back for all their support."

Ponce said that there is still booth space available. The space is free but

organizations and businesses need to plan to bring their own tables and

chairs. "We’re anticipating that it will be an even bigger event this year

so we are advising people to plan for 1,000 this year. We ask that each

booth provide a treat or an activity for the children." There will be a

prize for the best decorated booth.

Those interested in having a booth can register at the Liberal Care Center,

620-624-6865, or email [email protected] , or the Seward County United Way,
