Join Heart & Soul: Caring for Our Community on Saturday,
October 23, 2021 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for the 18th annual
Halloween@Hensville. This year, the event planning committee is
‘Taking it Outside” in the Concourse at Fifth Third Field. “We
are really excited to be able to continue this fun event by
offering a small change of venue that will help keep people safe
from COVID,” says Tony Rascyk, a co-chair of the event.
Usually held indoors at The Roost, this year’s event will take
place throughout the Concourse, giving people plenty of room to
social distance. “Halloween lends itself to ‘masks’ so our hope
is there will be a lot of competition for the costume contest,”
adds Rascyk. Halloween@Hensville is designed to raise awareness
of mental illness and help erase the stigma associated with it.
Admission is $50 per person in advance and $60 at the door. Cost
includes dinner, live entertainment and free parking.
Entertainment includes the Overton Project and the Toledo School
for the Arts Jazz Quartet. A silent auction will take place,
along with a live auction by Karen Rose. Costumes are encouraged
but not required. There will be a costume contest with prizes
for the winners.
“This year will be a bit different – but that doesn’t mean it
won’t be fun,” says Sally Binard, also a co-chair.
“What’s most important is the raising of funds that will be used
to assist those living with mental illness.” Having family and
friends who live with mental illness, Heart & Soul co-founders
Binard and Rasczyk are passionate about helping reduce the
stigma surrounding them and the illness.
“We had to cancel the event in 2020 due to COVID,” says Binard.
“This year, we are back and ready to raise funds for the members
of the Thomas M Wernert Center and programs at the Northwest
Ohio Psychiatric Hospital.
