Fairchild‘s First-Ever Halloween Bash Promises
A Frightfully Fun Night in Tropical Paradise
Coral Gables, FL, October 31, 2007-It was a wickedly delicious time at Fairchild‘s first-ever Halloween Bash this past Saturday, October 27, 2007 from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Over 250 people attended the Bash and danced the night away in the frightfully decorated Garden House to the sounds of DJ Gabriel, nibbled on food catered by Macys and enjoyed drinks by Bacardi. The VIP tent on the Garden House lawn was set up lounge style for special guests to kick back and relax. All proceeds for this event benefit Fairchild‘s educational and conservation programs.
This event is generously underwritten by Bacardi, Bloomingdale‘s (The Falls), Mahou Beer, Nordstrom and Peroni Italy.
