More than 300 ghosts and ghouls flocked with their little goblins dressed in costume and masks at the popular All Hallow’s Eve Party. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation held this annual fundraiser at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Thursday, October 27, 2016. The ghoulish event was presented by Hollywood Forever where guests celebrated the spirits all for a good cause for the community.

The family-friendly event was one of the two annual fundraisers which helps The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation raise funds. The proceeds make it possible for the Foundation to assist community organization in the form of grants.

“These grants are a direct financial investment and ongoing commitment by our local business community in support of Hollywood’s non-profits, arts organizations, youth services and underserved populations,” said Beth Marlis, Chair of the Community Foundation for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “It’s an honor to support their efforts and our community through our Foundation’s grant-making program,” continued Marlis. “We just awarded $20,000 in grants to eleven organizations. I’m extremely proud of and inspired by the incredible work that our diverse community non-profits do on a daily basis.”
