This Sunday, Oct. 28, Latino Club will hold a new fundrasier: a Halloween party. The party will be open to people of all ages, but will focus on elementary school students.
Latino Club members expect the party raise at least one more scholarship than last year. Gabriela Medina, social worker, said she also expected the party to affect the Hispanic community at a family level.
She says the Latino Club is always looking for “events that promote family togetherness.”
Caroline Tinoco, senior, says the event will be a success and expects a large number of guests to attend.
“I sent it (an invitation) to all the teachers here and all my family,” Tinoco said.
At the party, guests will participate in children’s games, raffles, scary stories, food and movies, among other activities.
Carolina Figueroa, sophomore, said that although the activities focus on elementary school children, she would also invite WHS students to attend. She says it will be an opportunity to teach children that “we’re not actually big, scary monsters.”
Ms. Medina hopes the festival promotes “the ability to connect with the children in this economy and even though parents are always working.”
