Get in by wearing an old recycled halloween costume (no new costumes allowed). Wear the creepiest costume and win a $40 gift card to The Terminal Brewhouse, new Goodhew socks and a Goody Bag from Habitat for Humanity.
And while you lurk about, guzzle a free glass of ghoul or Dead Guy Ale and catch a glimpse of the 1978 thriller, Halloween. Just remember to bring donations for The ReStore. A minimum $1 donation gets you an additional drink while serving a great cause.

Brighter Times Ahead

Eight-year-old Omar Vasquez studies for school inside his family’s makeshift home in San Martin Jilotepeque, Guatemala. Omar’s textbook and face are illuminated by sunshine penetrating through cracks in the wooden shelter. For 25 years, Omar’s grandparents — Maria Teresa Ramirez and Miguel Angel Juares, pictured in the background — had lived in the same house. As their family grew to include children such as Omar’s father, Edwin Yoani Vazquez, space grew tighter.
To ease the suffocating conditions, Maria and Miguel recently moved into this improvised structure with Omar, Edwin and two other grandchildren. Thankfully, their time here is temporary. Soon, Omar will have more space — and light — to study in a new, block home the family is building with Habitat Guatemala. “Omar always arrives back at the house after school and immediately asks about the volunteers,” says his grandmother, Maria Teresa. “The volunteers all work so hard, also chatting and playing with the children. We are very happy we have the opportunity to know them and to work together to build the house.”
