Although, I depicted just a glimpse inside such a wonderful night of adventure; let me not forget to tell you this event was put together all in the name of charity for Cornerstone Montgomery and event attendees made a $10 donation for admission to the Yelp's Time Warp costume party. Lastly, I remember there was a five charity raffle whereas; neighborhood businesses donated gift cards and certificates to support Cornerstone Montgomery.
