Halloween Costume Party is a Success!

On Saturday, November 1, 2003, William and Deborah Landon with Edward and Mary hosted the First Annual Halloween Costume Party to benefit F.S.M.A. in Billy and Debbie’s home. The party was given to help raise awareness and support for increased research of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and a possible treatment or cure. Billy and Debbie’s niece, and Ed and Mary’s granddaughter, one year old, Elizabeth “Morgan” Saville, was diagnosed with S.M.A. type 2, in June.

The generous attendees donned costumes ranging from Snow White, to The Big Bad Wolf. The costume contest was judged by Margaret Baxter, and Elizabeth Anne Landon. Prizes were donated by Bed, Bath and Beyond, Zero’s Subs, and Billy and Debbie Landon. The results are as follows:
