Spook-tacular family fun raises money for sick kids

You would be forgiven for thinking a zombie apocalypse had hit the town as the inaugural Wirraway Halloween Party in the Park kicked-off and raised money for Camp Quality.

Neighbours from near and far flocked to the newly-opened Wirraway Park in hoards for a ‘frightfully’ good night of fun, food and family entertainment, hosted by award-winning developer Defence Housing Australia.

Camp Quality manned the barbeque and also entertained the crowd with a good old-fashion guessing game of how many chocolate eyeballs in the jar. With more than $800 raised, all funds will go directly to help sick kids suffering with cancer.

Among the residents who were having a screaming good time was Wirraway local Tracey, who enjoyed the festivities with her son.

‘It was wonderful to see so many families out enjoying a great afternoon, while also supporting a great organisation such as Camp Quality. My little boy had a fabulous time enjoying all that was on offer,’ said Tracey

DHA - 4The Wirraway Halloween Party in the Park catered for the whole family (including four-legged friends) creating a safe space for families to trick or treat and enjoy free activities including face painting, jumping castle and a sausage sizzle

There were also free lollies for the kids and prizes for the best dressed, which was hard to judge with so many little ghouls and ghosts out for the night.

Free family events at Wirraway are fast becoming a highlight of the local social calendar—with both last night’s Halloween party and the recent open-air cinema event proving to be hits. Stay tuned to our website for more events!
