HALLOWEEN EVENTS

Is one of your guilty pleasures dressing up your pet?  With Halloween just around the corner, Sure Fit, leading provider of slipcovers, home solutions and various pet products, has kicked off their first “Halloween Pet Costume Contest” on Facebook!  Whether styling Fido as Batdog, a Hotdog or even a cheerleader, enter our Facebook contest for a chance to win an item from our Auto Friends Collection!

Submissions must include a photo of your pet in a costume along with your name, address, phone number and pet’s name.

Halloween is a time to eat too much candy, throw on a crazy costume and transform your halls into a haunted house!  However, for some people, decorating for Halloween may seem as scary as the decorations themselves. Luckily, with Command products from 3M, you can avoid the aggravation of spooking your walls with holes, marks or sticky residue after the cobwebs, spiders and goblins are packed away. This year, Command Brand is donating $20,000 along with damage-free decorating products to the non-profit organization, Rebuilding Together, to help more Americans transform their houses into homes this Halloween. What’s more, lifestyle expert Kelley Moore provided some great tips on how you and your readers can transform your space from everyday living to a Halloween extravaganza! To support Command Brand’s donation, check out this web video, including some of Kelley’s best Halloween decorating tips and tricks: http://youtu.be/RfcNOQxKhOg
