The Iowa City Zombie March may be over…. but not all of the zombie goodness. We raised $1,114 for Red Shamrock Foundation & Iowa City Hospice!! Additionally we raised 306lbs of food for Table to Table.
I also found out from Bob at Table to Table or food donation history. Check this out:
08 = 35 pounds
09 = 71 pounds
10 = 157 pounds
11= 306 pounds
569 pounds = 428 equivalent meals (pounds/1.33 = eq. meals)
So, more about the upcoming zombie action. I’m involved in a more local charity event to raise money and awareness for domestic abuse and violence on October 22nd in Kauakauna. (FYI: October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month). I was asked to help Bear Spot Tattoo and other local business create an event that raises some money and that brings people into the area for something new and exciting. It is much smaller that the I.C. March, only spanning two blocks…. but don’t let that fool you. It is going to be a lot of fun. For more information on this event, use the social media bar at the bottom of the page to check out our Facebook fan page and look at our events… or you can just click here.
Also, on Oct. 20th… it’s the first, of many… the Iowa City Zombie Masquerade Ball. Check out their fan page for event details. They will be raising even more money for Red Shamrock Foundation. If all goes well, I will be in attendance as well.
Keep checking back for more details on either event or on the appropriate Facebook pages.
The Iowa City Press Citizen did an excellent article in their paper. Thank you soo much. Also, Todd Adamson did a great photo essay of the whole event. Thank you all for the great coverage! That doesn’t even begin to cover all of the other people out their taking photos.
Also, as I mentioned, there were some left over shirts and stickers that will be made available online for purchase… well, kind of. I have created a spreadsheet with what we still have. T-shirts are still $15 (and include postage in the US) and stickers are FREE with SASE (Invitation Size – see spread sheet for dimensions) or $1 and I’ll mail them off.
Thanks again for making it a great year!! A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped out, participated, donated or just cheered us on! Thank you! You guys make it possible for me to keep planning and doing this every year!
The grand total of everything raised at the 6th Annual Iowa City Zombie March is:

Thank you all for coming out! It was another successful year!
The zombie banker I hired is still counting the money.... but we did collect over 300lbs of food for Table to Table!! Amazing! Last year was about 170. If you didn't get a chance to pass off your food or wanted to donate (but forgot), they are located in Old Brick on Linn Street in Iowa City!
More updates about how much raised to come!
Thanks again for the great year!!
P.S. We still have some shirts available. I will be posting sizes soon.
