What Is This All About?
An Invasion of the Redmond Town Center
Every year hundreds of you shamble, stagger, and shimmy your way down to Redmond Town Center for the annual THRILL THE WORLD REDMOND. In 2012 365 creepie undead of Redmond raised over $7400 – just by getting their groove on to Michael Jackson’s global phenomenon, THRILLER! Zombies aged 8 to 80 invaded the Town Center in their best bloody rags, adding their numbers to the annual THRILL THE WORLD
We want YOU to join the horde!
Bring the kids and the grandparents, because this is a family friendly day of fun. Don’t like to dance? Get a ghastly pallor expertly applied by our makeup artists for your souvenir photo, check out fabulous performances from local musicians and actors, and go shopping! Retailers all over the Town Center will be offering special discounts for customers in zombie-wear, and restaurants will be offering discounts, deals, and their signature Zombie Cocktails. And don’t forget to show off your amazing costume in the costume contest! We’ll be giving away “to-die-for” prizes from our shops and restaurants, and tickets to upcoming SecondStory Repertory shows.
Fundraising for Charity
We mostly raise money through the dancer registration fees, and the sale of T-Shirts. This year we are supporting Team Survivor Northwest. Their mission is to provide a broad range of fitness and health education programs to enable women cancer survivors, in any stage of treatment or recovery and at any fitness level, to take an active role in their ongoing physical and emotional healing.
