Melanie Hasty-Grant and husband Ken Grant dressed as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at their 2014 Halloween Haunted Mansion, sponsored each year by Waterstone Private Wealth Management.
Melanie Hasty-Grant and Ken Grant are the owners of Waterstone Private Wealth Management, with offices in Owasso and at Utica Square in Tulsa. If you’ve ever met the couple, you know that they enjoy life, helping people and having a lot of fun along the way. Waterstone Private Wealth Management has received many awards over the years for their hard work and their creative spark.
For the past ten years, Melanie and Ken have enjoyed sponsoring creative Halloween parties, which were originally for their family and friends. The past five years, the parties have transformed into fundraisers designed to benefit local charity organizations. Waterstone has extended an invitation for you to attend the Live Freak Show to benefit Night Light Tulsa.
Saturday, October 24 is the date of the Live Freak Show, billed as a tour of the scariest home on earth. Tickets for the event are $15 each and must be purchased in advance at either Waterstone Private Wealth Management or at Surceé in Owasso, located at 9455 Owasso Expressway, Suite CB. Tours will be conducted between 6 and 9 p.m. Parking will be at Surceé, and those who have pre-purchased tickets will be shuttled to and from the Freak Show by trolley. No private vehicles will be permitted at the event site.
You’ll know you’ve arrived at the Freak Show site when you spot the old black hearse in the front yard.
“The Freak Show will feature a tour of the house and hot dogs, popcorn and spiked lemonade,” said Melanie.
Night Light Tulsa is an opportunity for caring Tulsa area residents to build relationships with members of Tulsa’s homeless community. Night Light offers a hot meal, as well as essentials like soap, deodorant, first aid, clothing and foot washing to the homeless who attend the dinners held each Thursday night from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. under the bridge at Maybelle and Brady. “The hope is that each homeless guest will know that they are important and that there are others who care about them,” said Melanie. More information about this program is available online at www.nightlighttulsa.org.
Waterstone will also be sponsoring an annual Halloween party that is by invitation only. It, too, will benefit Night Light Tulsa. The party will be catered by the Waterstone team and will feature corn dogs, funnel cakes, Indian tacos and popcorn, as well as a performance by a professional magician and a fortune teller. Melanie encourages attendees to dress up as anything you’d expect to find at a “freak show,” such as the World’s Tallest Man, a ringmaster, clown, tight rope walker or magician. “We hope to sponsor at least ten or more Night Light Tulsa meals this year with the help of our fundraising efforts,” said Melanie.
What are you doing Saturday, October 24? Purchase your tickets now and join the Waterstone team at the Live Freak Show benefiting Night Light Tulsa.
