Zombie Walk Detroit

PAST EVENT: 4th Annual WORLD ZOMBIE DAY - Walk Against Hunger - Royal Oak


-WALK AGAINST HUNGER- was Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Once again we collected donations of food and funds for Gleaners Community Food Bank!

80 Degrees! (can you belieeeeve that weather??)
700 Zombies!
2,485 POUNDS of food, and counting- another 70 or 80 were dropped off after...


Cara, our lovely assistant from Gleaners, said a few zombies had let her know they'd forgotten their checks and would send in donations soon. If they come in over the next week or so we'll add it to the total.

BONUS: Rumor had it that we managed to hold the walk during a 'double your donation' event. Seems Weingartz is doubling all donations made before October 17th- our event included!

Cara said: Great Job and Great Turn out! The total meals provided for Gleaners with the extra food and the money including Weingartz match would be:34,609 meals!!

Imagine that.

On Thursday, we're heading to Gleaners with the estimated 70-80 pounds of food donated after Cara left with the Gleaners van and will add THAT to the total, as well!

Thank you to each and every person who made an effort to be there, collect food and/or funds on behalf of Gleaners. You zombies ROCK!

But there are always a handful of zombies who go above and beyond.

The Chartwell team again rocked our socks, bringing in an astonishing $821.64. The team of three walked away preparing to split up the GRAND PRIZE- 2 passes to the Dirty Dog Dash & a night at Boyne Mountain Resort, gift certificates from Noir Leather and Adornment Deluxe, an awesome hoodie from Detroit Comics, tickets to Erebus, Fear Farm, Realm of Darkness, and gifts from Lift & Zombie Walk Detroit!

SECOND PRIZE went to Kathie Ramsey who collected a whopping $600.00! Amazing! Kathie won a tee from Ink Addict, gift certificates to Adornment Deluxe and Detroit Comics, tickets to Blake's, Fear Factory & Realm of Darkness, and gifts from Zombie Walk Detroit!

THIRD PRIZE went to Lisa Komor for raising a staggering $420.00! Lisa received tickets to Blake's, Fear Factory & Realm of Darkness, a tee from Ink Addict, gift certificates from Adornment Deluxe and Noir, and gifts from ZWD!

Numbers were then drawn for an additional 21 (why'd I say 21?!) 33 prizes from our sponsors and prize donors. Wacky toys, make up and odd and silly little props were tossed out to waiting arms- and one tree branch!

Thanks zombies, for all of your hard work collecting food for being patient while we dealt with a dying megaphone, and extra thanks to Mays for being our human megaphone. Nice pipes!

Speaking of thanks... loads go out to Lisa and Jim- our collection table zombies/math whizzes, and to our MANY crossing guards and zombie herders- so many awesome volunteers! Thanks for helping things run smoothly.
