Your scary Halloween costumes
No Scary Pictures Here!!
No scary pictures here!!!
For Halloween, the American Club of Zurich (founded in 1952) is hosting a charity Auction to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation® , Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
We all know that Halloween has many connotations and in the US it has a special significance for children who dress in funny or ghostly costumes and knock on neighborhood doors shouting "Trick or Treat!" It has evolved into a family holiday, popular among young and old alike and is gaining popularity also in Switzerland. More and more adults celebrate Halloween and while Trick or Treating is an integral part of the holiday, partying and pranks are not the only things that Halloweeners enjoy doing. Collecting and donating money to help children less fortunate is fast becoming part of the holiday’s tradition.
Our goal is to raise funds to help make wishes come true for critically ill children in Zurich by auctioning items donated by generous corporate, commercial and private supporters. Thank you for supporting our effort!
