Frightful fundraiser for Castlegar Hospice Society

The Castlegar Hospice Society held a zombie, burger and beer fundraiser at the Thirsty Duck on Saturday.

Zombies overran the Thirsty Duck Neighbourhood Pub on Saturday night, raising money for Castlegar Hospice Society.

The Zombie Burger and Beer night was the Hospice Society’s Halloween event for this year, replacing the Monster Mash.

“This year we decided to do something a bit different … and Stacey and Tracey [Molnar], the new owners here at the Thirsty Duck were gracious enough to offer to do a burger and beer fundraiser for us, with a zombie theme,” said Suzanne Lehbauer, executive director of the Hospice Society. “So we’re really really thrilled that they’re helping us out this year.”

Staff at the Thirsty Duck donned their best zombie makeup to help make the event a success, as did Lehbauer, who came dressed as zombie Little Red Riding Hood, and Dr. Joanne Lih, a director on the society’s board, who came dressed as a zombie spinster.

Attendees were also encouraged to dress up and had the chance to win prizes for their costumes. And of course there was lots of candy to go around.

Funds raised during the evening’s event will support the Hospice and the services it offers.

“All of the money raised tonight stays in the community and goes toward all the services provided by Castlegar Hospice,” said Lehbauer. “We’re very grateful for all of the sponsors tonight: the Thirsty Duck Pub, Nelson Brewing Company, Castlegar News, The Goat, and of course Hospice.”
