If you don't have Halloween plans, the Scary for Charity fundraiser invites you to a Vampire's Lair costume Halloween party this weekend.
All proceeds benefit The Jamison Center and the Kern Partnership for Children and Families.
The Jamison Center is a 24-hour emergency shelter and protective custody facility, said Carl Guilford, program director of the center, Wednesday on "First Look with Scott Cox."
The Halloween party for those at least 21 years old will be held from 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the Marriott Hotel. There will be a costume contest, dancing, music by DJ YOGI and more. Tickets are $55 pre-sale and $60 at the door.
"I wouldn't wait to buy tickets at the door because they are going fast and the fire marshal won't let us have too many people, so get your tickets now," Guilford said.
Face painting will be done from 6:30 to 9 p.m. by Lizz Horton, a local professional makeup artist.
Horton has painted for three years. She painted a dead-zombie-look in about 10 minutes on Californian reporter Laura Liera during "First Look."
"It's my favorite holiday of the year and I take appointments at home all day long on Halloween," Horton said.
