Halloween might not be until tomorrow, but the JFA Family kicked off the festivities on Friday night at the annual Monster Ball Halloween event hosted by The Alliance for Positive Health.  This event was a spooky-fun time and we were thrilled to be a sponsor!

It was held at the Albany Capital Center where there were food tastings, wine samplings, prizes, a silent auction, live entertainment from Grand Central Station and of course a costume contest.

Thirty-two JFA employees broke out their best costumes to attend the monstrous event – 20 of whom were Young Professionals!

Here’s what a few of them had to say about the fang-tastic bash.

Jack (aka Matt Bellassi)  – “The event was great, the food was phenomenal and the wines were interesting. As a non-wine drinker it was fun to sample a few different types to see what I like. I won an item at the silent auction and was very pleased with that. All in all it was a nice night and I look forward to next year.”

Monica (aka Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz) – “I thought the event was wonderful. The band was excellent, the food was delicious, and it was so much fun to spend the evening dancing and laughing with my coworkers. I have some truly great memories to take away from the Monster Ball!”

She also clicked her ruby red slippers and gracefully found herself volunteering to sell raffle tickets alongside another co-worker who dressed up as Glinda the Good Witch!

Ashley (aka Mother Nature) – “The event on Friday was great! There was a great turnout (especially for JFA!), the silent auction had some great items and the food was delicious! It was definitely nice to spend time with our JFA work family outside of the office.”

We look forward to another magical evening next year! Lastly, Jaeger & Flynn would like to wish you all a safe and fun Halloween!
