TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The 13 Ugly Men continue their annual Halloween Party tradition, and this year had the largest turnout yet. This year's party included pumpkin carvings, a saxophonist, two DJ's, a magician, and plenty of VIP tables. However, these annual parties aren't just about having a fun time. Every party thrown by The 13 Ugly Men benefits different charities in the community. The 2015 Halloween party benefited the St. Joseph's Children's Hospital Foundation, which serves roughly 60,000 children every year, and is currently renovating the hospital to meet today's modernized standards, while still functioning and supporting all guests. This year, the 13 Ugly Men's Halloween party made it possible for the St. Joseph's Children's Hospital to receive a donation of $25,000 to be used towards these renovations.
"Our annual Halloween party is the best in Tampa. All of our guests dress up and really get into it, and always have a great time. We had a chance to deliver the $25,000 check in person to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, as well as tour the facility. The most rewarding part of the entire experience was spending an hour decorating holiday cookies with the children. We know the donation is going to end up doing great things for the children at this hospital, and it is why we put so much effort into throwing such a big event," said 13 Ugly Men President, David Moyer.
