Scary Christmas 

Every Halloween, you shell out between $20 and $100 bucks on the perfect costume, only to wear it for one night. Well, drag that orange jumpsuit and Bernie Madoff mask out of storage because NRG Luv Productions is offering another excuse to don your Halloween disguise.

Costumes are strongly encouraged at the annual "Nightmare Before Christmas" party benefiting Friends for Life and Hope House. At Café Eclectic on Saturday, December 12th, DJs Mary Jane, Steve Anne, Justin Hand, Nathan Ashby, Scottie B, and Suga' Shane will spin records while attendees enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet and open bar.

NRG Luv's Shane Jeffers, an employee at Café Eclectic, has been throwing an annual Christmas party at his house for seven years. He adopted the charity cause the fourth year, and the shindig eventually outgrew his home.

"We had 411 people show up at my house last time. That's why we moved to Café Eclectic this year," Jeffers (aka DJ Suga' Shane) says.

Though costumes aren't required, Jeffers says it would be behoove folks to dress up. That's because they're offering two $100 cash prizes for best Halloween and best Christmas costumes.

Partygoers will be asked to donate $20 at the door or three unwrapped toys. The money and toys will be divided among HIV/AIDS service providers Friends for Life and Hope House, which helps kids who have been infected with HIV.
