It takes a lot of planning, preparation and money to play a full season of baseball.

That's why the Bruno Merchants are inviting you to their Halloween Masquerade Dance this Saturday.

Ray Bender with the Merchants says its not the first time they  have put on the event.

"It's the second year now we've been running it. We had a fairly good turn out last year and we're hoping again to have a good turn out this year."

Bender elaborated on where the funds go and why this fundraiser is important.

"We all know it costs quite a bit of of money to do anything, especially once you start flying and booking hotel rooms. It's (the dance) definitely one of the crucial ones (fundraisers) to start the season off for next year."

The event will take place at the Bruno Community Hall around 9:00p.m. and will feature live entertainment by 40 oz Philosophy.

Pre-sale tickets are available for $15 by calling Ray at (1-306-369-7631) or $20 the door. Bender added that anyone under the age of 19 should be accompanied by an adult.
