Friday October 31st the Friends of the Alger hosted a Halloween costume party within the Alger Theater! There were over 100 people in attendance and the party went off without a hitch. This event was put on as an effort to continue fundraising for the on-going rehab of the theater as well as to get more people inside seeing the progress that has been made thus far.
The Party included a 5 Category Costume party with prizes for each winner. Some pictures featured below in the slide show. Our personal fan favorite was from Lisa and Brad who dressed up as the Alger Theater itself sporting the marquee and popcorn bags. Our winners included:
Most Original - The Alger Theater couple
Funniest - the squeaky wheel
Best Couple or Group - the construction zone
Scariest Movie Character - Tippy Hedren from The Birds
Best Overall - Hester Pryne from the Scarlet Letter
All together after costs the event raised about $1200 for the theater. We want to thank our vendor’s Motor City Brewery for beer and wine, Pizza Rau for pizza; and of course we want to thank all of you for your continued support, this has been amazing year for the Friend’s of the Alger and this party was a great way to wrap up and celebrate all the progress that has been made.
