Announcing The ?Be Ghoul Not Cruel? Halloween Party!

This Halloween, have a great time with fellow animal lovers, support a cause you believe in, and enjoy a fascinating talk by PETA co-founder Alex Pacheco!

Join OCPA?s Be Ghoul Not Cruel Halloween Party, and help raise money and awareness for animal protection while competing for amazing prizes and taking part in a fun, vegan dinner party. You can win one of these great prizes:
? Brand new, $550 Apple iPad
? Brand new, $150 Apple iPod Multi-Touch Nano
? Gift cards for local vegan restaurants
? And many others!

The party is on Sunday, October 31, 2010, from 6 pm to 9 pm, at Happy Family Restaurant, 1400 Bristol Ave in Costa Mesa [masked]). Want to start a little earlier? Show up at 4:30 for a short, pre-party ?Zombie Walk? in a surprise location. Enjoy great costumes, prizes, and a tasty vegan dinner and drinks! We?ll dress as zombies, animals, evil corporate mascots, or anything else creative.

Don?t want to wear a costume and/or do the Zombie Walk, but still want to help?

You can help raise money even if you don?t attend! See below for details. Please consider participating in any way you can to help OCPA raise money for its important work.

Admission to the dinner and after-party are free for anyone who raises $100 or more ? otherwise, just pay $25 in advance ($30 at the door) and enjoy a great vegan buffet (includes appetizers, dessert, tip, and tax). To pay for dinner in advance, click here and indicate it?s for our Halloween party: http://www.ocpausa.org/online_pmt.htm.
