Annual fundraiser benefits programs for people with employment challenges
On Friday, Oct. 20, Goodwill Industries-Suncoast, Inc. will present Ghoulwill Bash, a Halloween party to benefit Goodwill’s services for people with challenges to employment. This year’s “Ship of Ghouls” will set sail on the Yacht StarShip in Tampa’s Channelside district.
Guests will enjoy a scary good cruise on a luxury yacht, along with complimentary beer and wine, a gourmet dinner buffet, DJ and dancing, interactive games, silent auction and more! Costumes are encouraged, and the best will win a $100 Visa gift card.
Boarding will begin at 7:30 p.m. at 603 Channelside Drive, Tampa. The ship will set sail at 8:30 p.m. and return to port at 10:30 p.m.
This year, the public is invited to enter a costume contest for a chance to win two free tickets to the event. Details and entry information here: www.goodwill-suncoast.org/costume-contest
