Halloween monsters raise funds for science

October 14, 2013 by  

This Halloween, ghosts and ghouls will be returning to the Tanglewood Preserve at Rockville Centre, New York for some petrifying annual fundraising.

Hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning, the 4th Annual Spooky Fest includes a spooky walk full of frightful sights and sounds along the preserve’s grounds. There is also a non-spooky walk that can be enjoyed by the whole family, particularly younger attendees. Other attractions will include arts and crafts, an exhibit featuring live animals, and, for those who are feeling especially adventurous, the Mystic Den and Maze of Madness.

The Center for Teaching and Learning is a non-profit organization carrying the mission of creating fun and educational programs that teach adults and children about science. It also works with other non-profits, museums, nature centers, and zoos all over the United States.

It is likely that organizers for this event will reach out to printing companies to help them advertise for it. Postcard printing companies can help provide materials to be mailed out to people on the center’s mailing list. Flyers and posters are also good promotional tools and could be distributed in Rockville Centre and nearby towns like Valley Stream or Island Park.

The event begins on Friday, October 25, and runs every night that weekend, closing on Sunday. It takes place between 6:30 pm and 9:00 pm. There is a $10 admission fee for each attendee, which goes towards supporting the Center for Teaching and Learning and its programs.
