Angels and devils on two paws or four, prepare for an evening of thrills, frights, and more!
HAG Customs Print & Design and GL Heritage Brewing Co. are excited to announce the first annual ‘Devil’s Masquerade’; an evening of devilish happenings to raise awareness and money for the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society.
The spooktacular event takes place Saturday, October 30th from 5 to 9pm at GL Heritage Brewing Co. and promises to be more than your average fundraiser.
“It will be a little odd and intriguing,” laughs organizer Glen Greenwood from HAG Customs. “My goal is to make the evening an event more than a gathering. I want to keep people engaged and entertained.”
The evening will be filled with plenty of captivating entertainment both indoors and outside, including aerial artist Erikka Johnson, “Theatre of the Weird” with Eric Scott, as well as a fire show, jugglers, and other roaming buskers. Perennial favourite “The Nightmare Before Christmas” movie will also be shown outdoors on a 24 foot movie screen in the adjacent farm field with free popcorn available to enjoy.
“I’m very excited to help bring this event to the public. Animal activism is something I’m passionate about and the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society is at the forefront of it locally. Combined with Halloween, this is something I had to get behind,” says presenting sponsor Corey Beaudoin of Royal LePage Binder Realty.
“The Humane Society is honoured that Hag Customs and GL Heritage Brewing Company chose us as the beneficiary of this event. It’s wonderful that our community is able to enjoy a pet-friendly event like this, while also raising funds to help other local animals in need,” says Melanie Coulter, Executive Director of the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society.
A variety of mouth-watering food options will be available throughout the evening courtesy of At Long Last Gourmet Appetizers, including wraps and specialty egg rolls.
GL Heritage will also be serving up a full selection of their award-winning craft beer, including seasonal releases Apple Jack’d Ale and BEE-utiful Honey Brown Ale. Juice, pop, and hot chocolate will be available as well.
“This event is unlike anything that’s been done before and we are thrilled to be hosting it at the brewery,” says Jen Desjardins-Grondin of GL Heritage. “We love collaborating and supporting our community in any way we can and, as animal lovers, we’re happy to be raising awareness and funds for the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society.”
The event is pet-friendly, and revelers are encouraged to bring their four-legged companions. Prizes for ‘Best Costume’ will be awarded to both humans and furry friends, so come dressed in your best disguise, spooky or fun.
