Do some good on Halloween weekend: two cool events for you

Help a veteran get a good night's sleep

The local charitable group Just Us League hosts the Idaho Veterans' Masquerade Ball at Woodriver Cellars, 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 29. Tickets: $30 or two for $50, available at Woodriver Cellars or the Boise Co-op.

Organizers of the masquerade are hoping to raise $45,000 for the Idaho State Veterans Home to buy new electric beds for veterans. Idahoans don't know, say organizers, that many vets are sleeping on Vietnam-era beds.  The Veterans' Home needs between 30-35 beds for residents.

Questions? Call Kristy Sternes at 866-3205. To learn more about the Just Us League, visit the website.  

All proceeds from the event will benefit the cause.

Run/walk for Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind

The 2010 Raptor Run will benefit the school. Runners and walkers will have the choice between a 5-K and 10-K distance. The Raptor Run begins at 8 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Ram Restaurant, 709 E. Park Blvd. The course follows the Greenbelt. For more info, call 731-8940.

I can save 50 bucks, play my music and sleep. That's 2 much.
