PADS' 1st Annual Howl-O-Ween Extravaganza – a Concert with a Cause - was a blast! Check out the clever and crazy costumes at http://www.westsuburbanpads.org/news/40/58/Howl-O-Ween-Extravaganza-Event-Photos – photos courtesy of Eileen Molony Photography.
Congratulations to 1st place winner of the Costume Contest "Brett Michaels" (Brett Miller). 2nd place went to "Black Swan" (Dan Patten ) and a 3rd place tie between "Blind Referees" (Tom Stefanic & Valerie Spiller) and "Toby Keith & Red Solo Cup" (Amanda & Robert Lambert). Tributosaurus rocked out three sets of all-time favorites, from Springsteen to Elvis Costello to the Bee Gees and even "99 Luftballoons"!
Many thanks to all who made this a huge fundraising success - the face painters, fortune tellers, and a mad scientist. Refreshments from Big Guys Sausage Stand, New Rose Catering, Culver's and Eli's Cheesecake, Burke Beverage, Vin Divino and Rutherford Wine Company.
