Los Angeles families are dusting off their Halloween costumes and gearing up for one of LA’s biggest family Halloween events, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times’ 18th Annual Halloween Carnival presented by JAKKS Cares, the philanthropic arm of JAKKS Pacific, Inc.
The Carnival, which raises money for Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, has grown exponentially over the last 17 years, raising more than $7 million through ticket sales for this annual event.
Celebrities who have taken part in the event before include Ben Stiller, Taylor Lautner, Josh Duhamel, Heather Locklear, Vanessa Williams, Marcia Cross, Jerry O’Connell, Aaron Carter, Karina Smirnoff, Denise Richards, Cheryl Hines, Michael Chiklis, Brooke Burke, Gilles Marini, Joely Fisher, Jim Belushi and more.
In addition to meeting and greeting celebrities, guests can enjoy rides, games, live music, film/cartoon characters, delectable food from some of LA’s top restaurants, a spooktacular costume contest and more than 10,000 toys and Disguise Halloween costumes as prizes from leading toymaker JAKKS Pacific. The Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times’ Annual Halloween Carnival promises to bring out the kid in all Angelenos.
Media sponsor, Clear Channel Radio, will be providing live entertainment during the carnival with special performances throughout the day on the 104.3 MYfm stage.
Children with cancer not only lose their health…they lose their childhood. Proceeds will help provide medically supervised year-round, cost-free sleep-away Camp programs for children with cancer and their families. Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times provides fun, friendships and a place to renew their spirits. For more than 28 years, Camp has been able to offer these services all through donations and fundraising events such as this.
The event takes place at the Universal Studios Backlot in Hollywood on October 24. For tickets and more info, click here.
