Denver, CO, October 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- A Denver entrepreneur, who has run a sold-out Halloween event for the past four years, announced today that profits from this year’s “Paranormal Palace” will benefit the Denver-based non-profit, the Women’s Global Empowerment Fund (WGEF). The event will be held October 26, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., at the Hyatt Regency DTC.
WGEF empowers women and families in a post-conflict region of northern Uganda and Haiti through microfinance, educational and leadership development programs. “This is an exciting collaboration,” said WGEF founder and president, Karen Sugar. “Not only do participants get to be part of Denver’s signature Halloween event, but they also will be empowering people rebuilding their lives, creating a party with a purpose. WGEF is appreciative of Kevin’s vision and generosity.”
“We decided to help a deserving non-profit that is working to create life- changing opportunities for underserved communities through innovation and economic empowerment,” said Paranormal Palace owner and founder, Kevin Larson.
Larson, who also hosts Denver’s iconic Victorian Fetish Ball, has a reputation for putting on high-quality, theatrical extravaganzas and organizers promise that this year’s Paranormal Palace – formerly known as “Haunted Hotel” - will far surpass previous years’ productions. Internationally-acclaimed artists and performers are gearing up for what he describes as “a full metaphysical experience.” Multiple ballrooms and more than 35 professional performers will entertain 3,000 guests, who will vie for a $2,000 costume prize.
Ticket prices start at $39. Hotel accommodation is available close by for those who prefer not to drive home. Admission is limited to persons 21 years of age and over. For more information, please go to paranormalpalace.org.
