“Show Your Scary Smile” at Wisconsin State Fair for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!
Vlad the Vampire appears at "fang-tastic" event August 6th to greet children
The Wisconsin Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will be hosting Vlad the Vampire on Monday, August 6th, at 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Jeffrey Scott Activity Stage at the Wisconsin State Fair for "Show Us Your Scary Smile."
Vlad the Vampire will greet children as they stop at the LLS exhibit, and will hand out vampire teeth to all of the children. Volunteers will also apply Cancer Bites temporary tattoos to guests’ faces, and take their picture in the Shutter Box photo booth, where they can "Show Us Your Scary Smile!" There will also be an opportunity to color a fun vampire picture as a take-home.
"What a fun thing for children to do while they are at State Fair on August 6th – it’s going to be a "fang-tastic" event for both children and their parents," said Ann Marie Frakes, Executive Director of LLS’ Wisconsin Chapter.
Vlad the Vampire’s costume is donated for the event by www.halloweencostumes.com.
