Inaugural Friscovania on Oct. 22 will benefit City House of Collin County
Join some of Texas’ top models, fashion designers – Nha Khanh, Susie Straubmueller, Double D Ranch, and Ese Azenabor – and Frisco Mayor Maher Maso for the inaugural Friscovania at Toyota Stadium on Saturday, October 22. Friscovania will benefit City House of Collin County, which provides emergency shelter and transitional residential services to abused, neglected, or homeless children and young adults.
The Count and Countess of Friscovania, also known as Mayor Maso and his wife Cindy, have designated Toyota Stadium a safe trick-or-treat zone for the day with trick-or-treating from 4 to 7 p.m., along with face painting and a kid-friendly haunted carnival.
After the sun goes down, the party kicks up from 7 to 10 p.m. with live rock music and a haunted fashion show with models, monsters, and a headlining act in “The Boneyard” (Budweiser Beer Garden). Feeling a little more country? “The Witches’ Brew” (WinStar River Club) will feature live music straight from Nashville.
Tickets to the party are $10 and include a raffle entry for door prizes with additional raffle tickets available for purchase on site. Children under 12 months get in free and Halloween costumes are encouraged!
Created by Toni Munoz-Hunt and Model Behaviors, Friscovania pays tribute to beloved makeup artist Kelly Whaley, who was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer and passed away earlier this year leaving behind a five-year- old son. Respected and beloved throughout the fashion community for both her talent and personality, Whaley loved Halloween and excelled at SPOOKTACULAR makeup looks.
Eighteen of her friends from the fashion community created Friscovania in an effort to not only aid an amazing cause in City House, but also to ensure Whaley and her creative legacy live on each October, which coincidentally happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
