Costumes are optional, though highly encouraged to help make the second annual “Lantern Effect” a success. Last year we raised $251 and over 20 canned goods for Harvesters during the lantern decoration and launch. This year we hope to raise even more for Harvesters! This is an event where families come and bring their kiddos dressed in Halloween costumes, so it may get busy and crowded!
Lanterns are a suggested donation of $3 per lantern, or 2 for $5, or 3 canned/nonperishable goods for a single lantern. 100% of the proceeds go to Harvesters!
