Haunted Hugo House Party Recap

Posted Fri, 10/31/2014 - 5:22pm by  |  Category:

We had a hauntingly good time last night at the Haunted Hugo House Party, where we danced to DJ Domenica, made some Edgar Allan Poe blackout poems, ran a costume contest, and guided nearly seventy intrepid adventurers through basement ghost tours. Best of all, we found out at the party that we made more than our $20K goal with $20,875 and $24,375 with the board member match for the 30/30 Writing Challenge and fundraiser. Thanks to our 30/30 writers and donors for supporting Hugo House, and congrats to all the writers this month who wrote 30 minutes a day for 30 days (and more!)

And now, for some highlights:
