OZ parties celebrates Halloween on Oct. 29

Poz people have been waiting all year to bring out that alter ego, that crazy costume, that particularly devilish grin. So, c'mon! Turn on your Halloween charm and put on your Halloween garb. Costumed characters and masked marauders are encouraged, as the OZ Parties celebrates Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 29.

A Halloween costume contest will be held at the stroke of midnight, and ghoulish prizes will be awarded. Snack items and drinks will be provided, but more is always welcome. Drink mixers and coolers of ice will be available for those wishing to BYOB. No contribution or donation is required. (Small donations of $5-10 are appreciated and go toward the expense of this and future events.) For more information about this event or to volunteer for setup or clean-up, please e-mail us at theozparties@hotmail.com.

Come join us! Mix, mingle, and enjoy the evening with old friends and new on Saturday night, Oct. 29, starting at 9pm. Austin's best-dressed ghouls will be at 8435 Jamestown (north of 183 near Ohlen Road/Payton Gin). The OZ Parties are open to all people living with HIV/AIDS and their friends, families, and partners, a place to socialize in a comfortable and enjoyable environment where HIV is not an issue. Take time to relax ... take time to enjoy ... take time to let your hair down (or put some on)!
