Ghouls, goblins, witches, and ghosts will be haunting the parking lot at the NEFAR Resource Center when NEFAR’s Community Affairs Task Force hosts its first Trunk or Treat event Thursday, October 28 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Trunk or Treat is a slightly different take on traditional trick-or-treating. It offers children in costume an opportunity to enjoy a Halloween activity in the safe environment of a well-lit parking lot as they walk from car to car with their families, collecting candy (and REALTOR business cards) from trunks decked out with spooky decorations. Also on site will be a bounce house and a food truck. The event is free to the public while those providing the trunks pay a $25 fee. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume and best decorated trunk.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Hunger Fight, a local nonprofit that supplies nutritious meals to hungry children, families, and seniors as well as age-appropriate books to preschoolers throughout Northeast Florida.
“This forum provides a wonderful way for NEFAR to give back to the community,” said Nicole Carroll, chairman of NEFAR’s Community Affairs Task Force. “It allows NEFAR’s members the opportunity to meet members of the public – young families (and possibly new clients) as they enjoy a free, festive event with their children. And by supporting Hunger Fight, it helps feed local children who go hungry each day, both physically and mentally.”
The Community Affairs Task Force hopes NEFAR members will share information about the Trunk or Treat event with REALTOR® friends who can then share it with friends from the community, she said.
“This is a great family friendly event for REALTORS® and affiliates alike to promote their businesses, to interact with people in the community, and to give back to a worthy cause,” Carroll said. “Please register today because we have limited trunk spaces available, and they are filling up fast. We look forward to seeing you at the Trunk or Treat.”
