White Rock firefighters are again inviting the community to have a ball in the name of charity.
The crew will host Halloween Howl 2 at Star of the Sea Hall (15262 Pacific Ave.) on Oct. 26, with proceeds benefiting community events and an all-abilities playground.
It is the second time that the fundraiser has had a Halloween theme. This time, costumes “are definitely a must,” said firefighter Evan Bird Tuesday.
“We had a full house last year and the costumes were unbelievable.”
The dance, headlined last October by White Rock-born reggae-rocker Daniel Wesley, raised about $7,500 towards ongoing efforts to establish the playground eyed for White Rock’s waterfront.
This year, Six Gun Romeo will return to kick off the evening, followed by DJ Ali Baba. Bird said he is confident they are the right mix to get people up and dancing once again.
There will also be prizes for costumes.
Tickets, $25, went on sale this week. They can be purchased online at www.wrff.eventbrite.ca or at the firehall, 15315 Pacific Ave.
