Halloween is NOT Cancelled


Staying safe at home this Halloween season? Well that is no reason to not celebrate! Join us online on October 28 for Halloween is NOT Cancelled hosted by Freestyle Love Supreme co-creator Anthony Veneziale with a special appearance by Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! This live stream event will celebrate all the things we love about Halloween: costumes, make-up and spooky treats, as well as tricks, treats and surprise guests!

The evening will include appearances by American Idol’s Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young, joined by Tony Award-winning costume designer Linda Cho (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder) and make-up artist and educator Eddie Duyos.

Leading up to the streaming event there will be an Instagram costume contest with two divisions: people over the age of 18 and pets. To enter, post a picture of yourself or your pet in costume using #notcancelledcostumecontest or #notcancelledcostumecontestpet and tag our Instagram account: @theactorsfund. The top five posts in each category by October 19 will move on to donation voting on the Britesiders website. Britesiders voting ends October 27, and the top three costumes in each category who receive the most votes will then be featured on the Halloween streaming event and win a prize.
