It’s that time of year, again: Undead Supers will invade Iowa City for the 6th Annual Iowa City Zombie March on September 17th, 2011!
Walk with your un-dead brethren through the streets of Iowa City in the light of day. With all your gore and glory, let’s mob the city! Be one of us because you are a Horror movie fan, because you love costumes or to make a statement. How often do you get to participate in something this weird and free? Not to mention raising money and awareness for Iowa City Hospice Care and Red Shamrock Foundation After Cancer Care various charities at the same time!
When: September 17th at 5:00, 2011
Where: Meet at Happy Hollow Park at 3:00 for make-up help. Show up in costume at 4:30 to learn about local charities and make donations. Money, human and animal (dog & cat) food donations greatly appreciated. We start walking at 5:00.
What: Walk from the park to down town Iowa City…ending up at the Yacht Club for the after party.
Why: To raise money for two local charities and generate food donations for the Table to Table food bank, as well as get the word out on several smaller, more local charities that show up. Commemorative shirts will be available for a $15 (or greater) donation. Stickers and bracelets will be available for $1 (or greater) donation.
The two charities featured this year are:
The Red Shamrock Foundation: The mission of the Red Shamrock Foundation is to support the unique health care needs of post cancer patients and their families, by raising awareness and funds for research and specialized care..
