 A Night with Nosferatu Gets Over 225 Folks Out to Bartley Ranch

We were very happy to see so many of our friends out last Friday for our first ever fundraiser at the Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater. The band was fantastic and the movie looked better than it ever could have in 1922, when it was first released. To see the grand finale at our YouTube page, click here and enjoy!
Nosferatu and the band.                                      Kids enjoyed the crafts table.

At the kids costume competition, R2D2 won!      Nosferatu sharing our #TMPF hashtag.

The band, composed of local musicians, set a great tone and made "A Night with Nosferatu" great. Thanks, guys!

Special thanks to Under the Rose and IMBIB Custom Brews for providing Reno-made craft beer at Pitchin' in the Parks and A Night With Nosferatu
