Trick Or Treat For United Way On Sunday

KSCB News - October 18, 2010 12:00 am

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

2010″ from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, 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.

“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, 620-624-5400, or email [email protected]

The Southgate Mall is donating the space for the event and Burtzloff

said, “We are deeply grateful for the support of the Southgate Mall and

the Best Market. They have really shown themselves to be great community

supporters.”
