Halloween Bash rocked MCCC’s Cellar

DJ Zarza had the Cellar jumping all night long at MCCC’s Halloween Bash.

The Gay-Straight Alliance, Math and Science Society (MASS), and Student Government sponsored the event for students Friday, Oct 28th. All the festivities took place in the Cellar of the A building.

MASS used the event to help raise funds for The Salvation Army Manor House. Admission was $1 to get in or a canned good, food, or clothing.

Student Government hosted a costume contest in which participants had a dance off to determine the places.

Winners for the costume contest were: First place, Mad Hatter, by Zac Shaw; Second place, Link, by Kris Lampson.

Kris Lampson, a student at MCCC, had a wonderful time during the dance-off.

“It was fun. I’m glad a lot of people participated and had a great time,” Lampson said.

The Gay-Straight Alliance held a pumpkin painting contest. Contestants were able to take as much time as they wanted.

Winners were: First Place: Mariah Elmer, who painted Jack Skellington’s face; Second Place: Jared Geisman, who painted the face of the Cheshire cat; and Third Place went to Emily Kern, who painted the Sleepy Hallow.

Deanna Boberg, secretary of the Gay-Straight Alliance, was one of the three judges.

“It was a wonderful turnout to the contest and all the painters did an awesome job,” Boberg said.

The Ballroom Dance Club performed, dancing to Thriller/Heads Will Roll.

Natasha Wickenheiser, club recruitment chair, had a lot of fun with the dance.

“We thought a fun choreographed dance to Thriller / Heads Will Roll would encourage our fellow students to get involved in our club,” Wickenheiser said.

Lezlee Downing, an MCCC student, said she enjoyed the dancing.

“Life is too short not to get up and dance,” Downing said.
