BRACE YOURSELF

There are so many remarkable Columbia, SC entities colliding to make this fundraiser bash happen that it barely fits into the building at historic 701 Whaley — much less into an email. Hold onto your hats:

  • FOOD TRUCK FOOD COURT – The 701 Whaley parking lot will be open to the public for a special, Halloween Night version of this mobile restaurant happening! Party ticket not required to buy savory treats at Bone-In Artisan BBQ on Wheels, Pawley’s Mobile Eats, 2Fat2Fly, Alfresco Mobilista, & NY’s Famous Hot Dogs.    
  • CAMPY NICKELODEON HORROR FILM – The Nick will be screening the film Troll 2 — the “best worst movie” ever — on loop for party guests in the event space next to the Grand Hall.
  • LOCAL ARTISTS’ CREATIONS – We’ve asked some of Columbia’s most notorious art makers to riff on “creepy” for our event decor. 
  • HORRIBLY HIP DJs
    DJs Will Flourance & Bakari Lebby of WUSC 90.5 and @SweetVans fame will create a DJ sandwich around DJ Irv Thompson!
