The JDRF Halloween Glowstick and Haunted House Tour fundraisers are back and in full swing for the fourth year. Both fundraisers celebrate Halloween and raise money for Juvenile Diabetes research.
The Glowstick fundraiser sells packages of 100 glow bracelets for $10 each.
This is possibly the last year that the glow bracelets will be sold for the amazing price of 100 for $10 (supplier prices are going up), so you will want to stock up not just for Halloween but also for New Year’s parties, birthdays and next summer’s camping trips. Glow bracelets can be ordered online at www.cvjdrf.knmgsolutions.com will be available for pickup at the office of Mackenzie Gartside & Associates in downtown Courtenay (212 5th St. above Zocalo Cafe). A limited supply of glow bracelets will be available for purchase by cash or cheque directly from the office. Call to confirm (250-331-0800) if you haven’t pre-ordered on the website so we can ensure we have stock when you arrive.
Get your haunt on
The Haunted House Tour is a great way for families to get in the Halloween spirit and enjoy some of the amazing decorations and haunted spectacles arranged at houses around the Comox Valley. This year’s tour will happen on Oct. 29 and 30 and includes a variety of drive-by, yard haunt, and haunted house locations. Pick a day and drive to some or all of the featured houses to be spooked and awed by the decorations. If you’d like your house to be on the map and help support this great cause, please contact Mackenzie 250-792-1618.
To take the tour, you can receive a complimentary map with the purchase of a glow bracelet package, or with a donation of $5 to the JDRF.
Maps are available from Mackenzie Gartside & Associates after Oct. 27.
The proceeds of both fundraisers go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and fund research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
