The fourth annual Boo Bash will be held at the Mason Creek Community Center, 20201 Kingsland Blvd. in Katy, on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. All proceeds benefit Mik’s Hidden Hearts Alliance, (MHHA). The witching hours are 6-10 p.m. so get ready for a scary good time at this Halloween soiree.

Boo Bash is a Halloween costume party for adults, with dinner provided by Saltgrass Steak House and delicious desserts provided by award-winning chef Tammy Smith. Party-goers will have a chance to get   down to the hits of the 1980s performed by the band, 80 Proof. Deejay Johnny Bravo will also be in the house, playing the hits.

A silent auction and a live auction will have some exciting items to bid on. There will also be a raffle. First prize is a Year of Date-Nights with gift cards to different restaurants. Second prize is a Coffee-Lovers basket and third prize is a movie prize package. Raffle tickets are $10 each or 5 for $40. For only $10 a ticket, there will be a prize pull. A costume contest complete with prizes will also be part of the festivities.

Tickets for the Boo Bash are $75 if purchased by Oct. 5 and $100 at the door. Admission includes dinner and a welcome bag. Register at mikshiddenhearts.org. Sponsorships are also available.

MHHA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to outreach to homebound and hospitalized teens with dysautonomia and other hidden, life-changing illnesses. MHHA was founded in 2011 by Mikaela Aschoff after she fell ill with dysautonomia in her freshman year of high school. The organization provides gifts, hope kits and monthly socials for these chronically ill young people as well as the annual Anti-PROM, a formal dinner and casino-night party for teens affected by hidden illnesses. MHHA also works to spread awareness of dysautonomia, which is considered a “hidden illness” because the sufferers often look healthy to the casual observer. It is, however, a complex condition caused by a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous
system and can affect the cardiovascular, endocrine, metabolic and gastrointestinal systems. Dysautonomia can cause very painful and debilitating symptoms. Visit mikshiddenhearts.org for information.

Note: Boo Bash is fun, party atmosphere planned for adults in order to raise necessary funds to support MHHA events, including Anti-Prom 2016. Boo Bash will have flashing lights, music and dancing. Attend with caution; special requests such as turning down music, stopping flashing lights, etc., cannot be made at this event. All other MHHA events are specially planned with teenagers and young adults in mind and health issues are the primary focus.
