Join old Hollywood stars for the "HallowScreen" Halloween Benefit Gala from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30.

Local indie-rock band Deleted Scenes and DJ Matt Spangler will provide spook-tacular musical entertainment, and Alisa Parenti, an award-winning anchor for MarketWatch Radio Network, will emcee the event.

Enter the costume contest for the best old Hollywood get-up for a chance to take home the evening’s grand prize.

Price of admission includes one drink ticket for a complimentary beverage, an array of ghoulish appetizers, a NPC swag bag, and automatic entry to win exclusive door prizes. There will also be a cash bar, the popcorn machine, and classic Hollywood horror flicks.

All proceeds will benefit the NPC's scholarship fund, which plays a vital role in launching the careers of talented young journalists who bring diversity to American news outlets.

Advance tickets are $15 for NPC members, $20 for non-members. Night-of tickets are $25.
