This Halloween at the Playboy Mansion will be a party for a good cause: The Wounded Warrior Project.
Halloween night, October 31, 2009, is open to the public for their Haunted Hollywood-themed party.
While the party will be at the Playboy Mansion, Hugh Hefner is not the host, nor is the party an official Playboy party, according to a FoxNews.com article.
Executive Director of the Halloween 09 bash Jose Dominguez was quoted in the Fox News article:
Hef was kind enough to let the Wounded Warrior Project be a beneficiary on Halloween. Proceeds will help severely wounded veterans that have recently served in Afghanistan and Iraq. Halloween is the most sought-after night at the Mansion so it was a good opportunity to support our veterans and enjoy a great party at the same time.
Tickets are $1,000 a piece for General Admission, and are available at Clubzone.com. Fox News reported a VIP ticket option for a price up to $15,000, but I was unable to find an opportunity to purchase those tickets on the Clubzone website.
Due to the success of Playboy magazine, and “The Girls Next Door,” a reality television series on the E network about the lives of Hef’s girlfriends, I am certain the Halloween party will be a huge benefit to The Wounded Warrior Project.
The flyer advertises Playboy models, but makes no promise of Hugh Hefner or his girlfriends being present at the party. Examiner.com speculated on their presence at the party, but I think they will be at the official Playboy Halloween party at Highlands in Los Angeles.
I will be following this story around Halloween and will report on the amount collected from admission proceeds.
The proceeds benefit veterans, but is $1,000 to much for a Halloween party? I want to hear your thoughts.
