Are you one who likes to hear tales of ghosts and goblins? If so, here’s a new adventure for you.

The Uncommon Friends Foundation is offering “Spirits on the Gulf” at the Burroughs Home in Fort Myers on Friday, Oct. 29.

You’re invited to enjoy an evening of ghostly tales of the “Burroughs Home and Haunted Happenings of the Gulf Coast” between 5:30 and 8 p.m.

Costumes or masks are optional. Brews, potions and tantalizing treats will be offered. Mona Burroughs will be there to tell of her ghostly experiences as a resident of the home. Other ethereal and competing spirits from Fort Myers history will also make appearances.

Tickets are $40 each. Reservations may be made by going online at www.uncommonfriends.org or by mailing a check to Uncommon Friends Foundation, P.O. Box 811, Fort Myers, FL 33902.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Character Education for Lee County Students. The event is being sponsored by Storm Smart Industries. Additional individual or business sponsorships are available.
