Non-Profit Organization Teams Up with Abracadabra NYC for Halloween Donation
In the spirit of giving season, Only Make Believe, a non-profit and children’s theater company, is teaming up with local Halloween mega store, Abracadabra NYC, to collect unused costumes for chronically ill and disabled children in and around NYC and D.C. areas.
Starting now through November 8th, consumers can donate brand-new costumes at various drop off locations throughout NYC and Washington D.C. Each costume donated will be used during the organization’s interactive theater program, creating a world of fantasy to each child outside the hospital walls.
For New Yorkers heading to Abracadabra for all of their costume needs, the retail store is offering a 15% discount for each unused costume purchased for donation.
Since its start in 1999, Only Make Believe has grown to participate in over 60 facilities along the east coast with over 5,000 performances completed. This year, OMB is hosting their annual gala for the 20th Anniversary Celebration “Make Believe on Broadway,” on November 4th at Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The event will feature various performances and notable Broadway talent including an appearance from Sir Ian McKellen among others.
To make a costume donation, please visit Abracadabra NYC located at 19 W 21st Street, or visit Only Make Believe’s offices at these locations:
