Masquerade Mayhem returns for third year

AVON — The black-tie optional fundraiser Masquerade Mayhem, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Avon, will return for its third year — and second benefiting Susie’s Place — Oct. 4.

The event will run from 6:30 to 11 p.m. at the Washington Township Park Pavilion, 435 Whipple Lane, Avon.

Kaye York, who is on the board of directors for Susie’s Place and is a co-chair for the event, said there will be a dinner and a cash bar, as well as other festivities.

“There’s going to be a jazz band and dancing and there are some other games to play,” she said. “There’s a 50/50 raffle, a gift card pull, and there’s going to be a game called Truffle and Time.”

The Truffle and Time game, she explained, works by purchasing a truffle dessert, which will put the buyer in contention to win a Tissot watch donated by Nelson Jewelers in Brownsburg.

York said this year those who attend can have a one-of-a-kind mask painted on before they enjoy the festivities.

“There will be a face painter there that can give you a really nice masquerade mask, if you choose, which will be complimentary,” she said. “There are also numerous silent auction items available to peruse and bid upon. Then there will be three or four live auction items.”

For those wanting to capture the fun of the evening, York said there will be a photographer on hand to do complimentary photo booth-type shots.

After raising a little more than $26,000 with last year’s event, she said the goal for this year is to raise $30,000.

She added that the money raised at this and other events is crucial for Susie’s Place.

“The funding that this event provides helps lots and lots of people within our community and really far-reaching outside our community across the state of Indiana,” York said. “It basically helps us keep our doors open to serve these kids.”
