Helpin’ with the Hoopla

This is Juan — a 17 year-old staff member at the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club — covered in Cool Whip.  Juan has been a Boys and Girls Club member since he was 10 and last year, he became the youngest and newest counselor.

You can see what sort of initiation the newly minted counselors endure.

Creaming the counselor is only one of the many fun activities offered at the Halloween Hoopla, and this year the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club can surely use some donations to help make it a great night.  Right now, they’re looking for some Cool Whip for the aforementioned counselor-creaming event; but they could also use bags of candy and some prizes for carnival games, as well as some baked goods (delivered on Friday, October 29) for their cake walk.

If you’re interested in donating, you can e-mail Meghan Sweet ([email protected]) or call her at 206-547-7261.

This year, Halloween Hoopla will be held on Saturday, October 30th, from 6-9 p.m., and everyone from the community is invited to don their costumes and come to the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club (1310 N 45th St.) for a great night of family entertainment.  The Hoopla features a haunted house (scary-for older youth), Frankenstein’s Lab (perfect for all), carnival games, a cake walk, arts & crafts, and much more.  Entry is just a buck for five tickets, and if you bring cans for the local food bank, you’ll earn even more tickets.

    Thank you so much for promoting our event! As Helen mentioned, we still need bags of candy, small prizes (even spider rings, things like that are great) and yes, Cool-Whip style whipped topping! We always run out on event night… and you don’t want to disappoint kids who have waited all year long to cream a counselor, do you??
