BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It’s a Halloween event that is sure to put some fun and fright into fundraising. Kern Partnership for Children and Families along with the Jameson Center are holding their third annual “Scary for Charity” Halloween bash at the Marriott Saturday October 27.
There will be entertainment, fun and frightening finger foods, a raffle, silent auction and a costume contest, said event organizers.
Organizers say this event was developed to help meet the needs of over 2000 children in Kern County that are in foster care.
This is the only fundraiser Kern Partnership for Children and Families does each year, said Jim Luff, President of Kern Partnership for Children and Families.
"We take in approximately 300 children a month at the Jameson Center and many of them arrive wearing whatever they have on their backs,” said Luff. “They have nothing else and we need to help start them rebuild their lives and we follow them through all the way to 18 years of age."
All of the money raised at the event will benefit children and families in Kern County.
Tickets for “Scary for Charity” are $50.00 per person. They are available for sale at the Marriott Hotel and online at www.ScaryForCharity.com or www.KernPartnership.com.
