Crane: Gentlemen: murder needs no ghosts come from the grave. We have murders in New York without benefit of ghouls and goblins.

Van Tassel: You are a long way from New York, constable.

Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Rest Traveller, as you are indeed far from home. You’ve arrives at the Nexus of worlds – there a hamlet haunted by a Hessian haint. See there, a castle of confectionaries and consternation. Beyond that hedge is a wondrous land of talking rabbits, treacherous cats, and a vorpal blade that goes snicker-snack.

You are among friends as we celebrate the mad, the vibrant and the wacko in costume and enjoy fine food with adult beverages at our 11th Annual Monster Mash for Literacy Bash.

This year’s theme is BURTONESQUE – we’re celebrating Tim Burton Movies! However, you DO NOT need to come in  Burton costume. All manner of costumes are welcome and encouraged!

Costume contests, a Penny Social, music, and dancing, gates open to Berkley VFW Post 9222, October 20, 2018, at 8:00 p.m.

Rumor has it there will be a death-defying Trivia Contest that threatens to test even your savvy knowledge.

There will be a Special Grand Raffle of a full set of 5-Star Funko Nightmare before Christmas figures!

This is a CASH ONLY BAR, so please bring CASH to buy your booze. There is an ATM located across the street for your convenience so you can get CASH.

21+ please.  $10.00 in advance and $10 at the door. You may use a credit/debit card to purchase party tickets and raffle tickets.

Advance Ticket Purchasers will also receive ten (10) free tickets to the Penny Social for a chance at fantastic gifts and autographed books.

We’ve even prepared special drinks to help blur the lines of reality, and a 50/50 raffle that could help line your pockets.

Proceeds from this year’s Burtonesque Monster Mash for Literacy Bash benefit the Dominican Literacy Center and we are proud to make them our permanent charities, ensuring that people of all ages discover the magic and power of reading as well as improve their lives with a strong educational foundation.
