Find your inner zombie

Young Professionals Comox Valley is throwing the biggest Halloween party of the year at the Bridge Lounge this Friday.

Find your inner zombie, ghost or goblin because the Young Professionals Comox Valley (YPCV) is throwing the biggest Halloween party of the year at the Bridge Lounge this Friday.

The Halloween Hellraiser social promises to “thrill” with many highlights including a Michael Jackson inspired Thriller dance-off, a live band, and a $100 prize for best costume, $200 for best group costume, and $100 for the best Thriller dance.

“This is the Halloween party you need to be at,” says YPCV event chair and Halloween aficionado Mackenzie Gartside. “Plans have been in the works since August and we have some great things planned!”

In addition to the promise of thrills and chills, all proceeds raised at the event are being donated to the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation to put towards the purchase of two blood pressure vital sign monitors, which have a value of $2,500 each.

St. Joseph’s Hospital has been providing quality health care in the Comox Valley and surrounding communities since 1913.

“We are hosting this event to give the hospital two new vital sign monitors, which all ages will benefit from,” says Matthew Beckett, YPCV vice-president. “On a personal note, my daughter was born there earlier this year and it was an excellent experience.

“The Hospital Foundation supports everyone in the valley young or old; this is why we aligned ourselves with this great cause.”

The event is open to everyone, and tickets are $25 in advance at Play N Trade, Mackenzie Gartside and Associates and the Bridge Lounge as well as online at www.ypcomoxvalley.com. Tickets can also be purchased the door for $30.

“Get them soon,” says Gartside. “They are selling quickly!”

Doors open at 9 p.m.

The Young Professionals of Comox Valley (YPCV) aims to promote social interaction and assist in the professional development of the Comox Valley’s future leaders. For more information visit: www.ypcomoxvalley.com or www.facebook.com/YPComoxValley.
