If you are part of an organization or business that is interested in reaching many families in a two hour span, please consider hosting a Candy Station for Trick or Treat OFF the Street. We are inviting organizations and businesses who are willing to donate and hand out candy for up to 200 children. We provide one 6' table and two chairs for you and you can hand out information along with the candy. Please call (913) 971-5111 for more information. Mahaffie hosted approximately 400 visitors for the event last year and we hope to have that many attend this year. This is a great opportunity to dress in costume and distribute information.
