When it comes to Halloween, there are a lot of different roads to travel. There are the ‘all out party’ events, or the ‘stay at home and answer your door for trick-or-treaters’ routine. But there’s another option for those who don’t care to do either of those things.
On Thursday October 30th, 2014, from 6:00-8:30pm at the Marquis Ballroom at The Hotel @ The Lafayette, Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara (formerly Literacy Volunteers of Buffalo & Erie County and Literacy Volunteers of Niagara County) will be hosting Cocktails in Character 2014.
Attendees are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite book character, while enjoying a night of live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, carving and pasta stations, basket raffles and auctions, all benefitting adult and children’s literacy programming right here in Buffalo. There’s a costume contest to boot, so get thinking about a character from your favorite novel, and feel good knowing that you are supporting a worthy cause. $50 tickets – cash bar. Special Guest, WBFO’s Eileen Buckley, will be on-hand at the event.
A VIP reception will be held from 6-7pm in the Crystal Ballroom. VIP tix are $100 and include passed hors d’oeuvres, open bar, live entertainment, and tours of the Lafayette Hotel.
