(R-L) Student council members Grace Nieman, Ava Fruhling, and Campbell Cullan run concessions during the Halloween movie night on Thursday, October 19. All of the proceeds from ticket sales, snacks, and hot chocolate went to Make-A-Wish Nebraska.

The annual East Student Council Halloween movie night kicked off on Thursday, October 19, 2023 in the band field at East High School. The goal for this event was to raise money for Make-A-Wish with the added help of donor Fun Flicks. This tradition always sparks a lot of interest for the Spartans due to low priced tickets, popular movie selections, and how easy it is to attend. With yard games, food, and entertainment all included for five dollars, there is a wide variety of things to do besides the movie.

This year, the Halloween movie night committee on student council chose to go a slightly different route on film choice, selecting “A Quiet Place”, a PG-13 horror film, a change from last year’s children’s films, “Hocus Pocus”.

Sophomore Gavin Foust, co-chair for the committee, had to do a great deal of planning, work, and promoting to set this event into action.

“Fun Flicks made the whole process very easy on us by providing a big screen for the movie,” Foust said. “No stress went into planning closer to the event because a lot of my fellow members were on top of reposting and organizing concessions and activities for the event.”

The big film screen donated for the event, as well as the perfect fall weather truly allowed a better movie experience than years prior. There was a large selection of candy bars and chips available before the movie, as well as early access to the popular breast cancer awareness shirts for the following Friday’s football game. Hot chocolate was sold out before the end of the movie, along with almost all snacks, and with all of the boxes being checked, the movie night raised a grand total of $282 for Make-A-Wish.

It’s safe to say that the Halloween movie night was another success for the Spartans, and has set the bar higher for the several seasons to come. Students can now look forward to whatever student council is brewing up for next year.
