The Third Annual Superhero Party will take place in Linden Square, Wellesley on Oct. 19. The family-style event will offer Halloween crafts, airbrush tattoos, gift bags, and activities, and all ticket profits will go to the Ellie Fund. A week later, “Halloween for Hope” provides a more grown-up costume party at The Place in Boston. The event will have costume contests and complimentary drink tickets, and will donate all of its proceeds to the Ellie Fund.
Aside from all of these events, many Boston venues provide month-long opportunities to support the fight against breast cancer. The Handle Bar, a gym in Southie, is offering “Pedal in Pink” spin classes throughout October and donating half of the class fees to the Ellie fund, as well as 20 percent of revenue they make off of special pink merchandise. Howl at the Moon, located in the Financial District, has declared a “Drink Pink” Month, and will sell 24-ounce pink drinks all month with a portion of the proceeds going to the cause, as well as a “Howl at the Boobies” t-shirt, the proceeds of which will go entirely toward charity.
