Three special sponsors will compete for the title of best-decorated room, and you won’t want to miss out on what they have in store for you! There will also be live music, a dance floor, and 50/50 drawing. During the event, you can purchase $1 tickets for Jell-O shots, raffles, bobbing for apples, and a chance to help crown the room-decorating champion. Bring Donations for HOPE and you’ll receive five free tickets! (See below for more details)
