Austin Pettis to Host Halloween Hangout and Costume Contest

Posted Oct 9, 2012

St. Louis Rams’ wide receiver Austin Pettis will host a Halloween Hangout Event on Saturday, October 20 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Dave and Buster’s in St. Louis (13857 Riverport Drive, St. Louis MO) for 50 kids in first through sixth grade.

All attendees will receive free admission, a free lunch with Pettis and a $10 gift card to play games with him and some of his Rams teammates.  Pettis’ Halloween bash will also feature a costume contest, with prizes awarded to some of his spookiest guests.

“I’m really excited about this event,” Pettis said. “I’ve always liked Halloween and everyone loves Dave and Buster’s, so I’m sure I’ll be right there with the kids playing all the video games possible during the day.  It’s fun to be able to give back to the community, come out and meet fans and just have a good time. I’m looking forward to seeing all the costumes as well.”

Pettis will sign autographs and provide Halloween treats and gifts for all the kids in attendance.  This event is open to the first 50 kids who RSVP.  For more information and to attend the event please email event director, Sherrie Handrinos at

About the Austin Pettis Foundation
The Austin Pettis Foundation’s mission is to broaden the life experiences of inner-city, underprivileged and disadvantaged youth by raising money for them to attend various sports, educational camps and programs.  The camps provide a complete package of sports & educational training (various sports available) that have a lasting and positive influence.

The Foundation knows that great possibilities are started by boys & girls being molded and influenced from attending camps. Many are unable to afford it for reasons out of their control.

By building character and integrity in youths through these sport camps and clinics we can put all children on the path to a great future with hope and opportunity.
