On October 29th, 2016, the University of South Alabama's Vietnamese Student Association hosted their Annual Halloween Party in Mobile, Alabama. The event was a festive way to raise money and awareness for this year’s Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP), the Catalyst Foundation – an organization that focuses on improving the lives of abandoned, orphaned, and homeless children in Vietnam.
The night consisted of a live DJ, male and female costume contest with a $50 award per winner, creepy and bloody photo booth, and more. It was a frighteningly successful night, with a total of approximately $1,000 collected for charity. Locals of the South Alabama community and even Vietnamese Student Association members from the other two Gulf Coast states - Louisiana and Mississippi - came out to support the cause, dressed in costumes inspired by famous characters (Eleven from 'Stranger Things'), popular memes (Arthur fist), and enjoyed delicious Asian-fusion cuisine hosted by Bamboo Fusion.
Many great memories were made that night, all while supporting a worthy charity, proving that the Annual Halloween Party was successful yet another year. Check out photos from the event here!
