Historic Lyran Society site of Halloween Bash

The Snaggs, Remynd to perform with proceeds going to Rock River Valley Hurricane Relief Fund

C. Hare of Borgata Records will host Halloween Bash 2005 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 29 at Historic Lyran Society, 1115 4th Ave. in the Mid-Town District.

The event is for ages 18 and older, although you must be 21 or older to purchase alcoholic beverages.

Rockford Raffles will be going on all night, and there’s a $500 Best Costume Contest. Local companies came together and donated free food, free pizza, and a free tattoo from Goldie’s on Broadway. A percentage of proceeds will go toward the Rock River Valley Hurricane Relief Fund. Local DJ Jes One will be hosting the event, and local group The Snaggs and Borgata recording artist Remynd will perform.

“We wanted to give young adults in Rockford something to do so they don’t have to drive to Madison or Chicago,” said Chris Hare, Rockford event promoter who has planned shows in Miami, New York, and Chicago.

Tickets are on sale for $10 in advance, $15 at the door and available at Vince the Tailor 1702 N. Main St., Anna’s Pizza 2216 N. Main St., The Groove Shop, 230 Arnold Ave., and Cross Cuts, 3706 N. Main St. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

To become a sponsor, or for more information, call Chris Hare at 742-7545.
