Our Mission

The mission of the Hosts of Halloween is to provide funding for Project Lazarus, a home in New Orleans for men and women with AIDS, so that they may provide healthcare and support services for their residents. Project Lazarus, which provides direct AIDS services, is the sole beneficiary of all funds which are raised.

In our 31 year history, we have raised almost $4.5M for Project Lazarus. We are one of the only 100% donation/volunteer event weekends left in the US.
