Hells Angels Halloween party Friday benefits homeless teens

Hells Angels dressed for Halloween are hosting a Halloween party that will benefit homeless teens.

The party starts Friday at 7 p.m. at the Bashful Bandit, a bar at 3686 E. Speedway Blvd.

The 21-and-older party will raise money for the local nonprofit Youth on Their Own. It works with homeless teens in grades 8 through 12, helping them find shelter and stay in school.

At the end of the evening, a check will be presented to the nonprofit’s representatives, said Bobby Jack Wright, a member of the Tucson charter of the Hells Angels motorcycle club.

Mikey and the Maniacs are booked to play rock music for costumed partygoers.

Wright said the money for charity will be raised through admission fees, which include a T-shirt featuring the Wolfman and Frankenstein, and an Italian dinner catered by Rosati’s.

Admission is $20 for singles and $30 a couple.

The parking lot outside the bar will be set up for Mexican food catered by a local restaurant so you can “taco up” if you prefer, Wright said.

An aspiring local boxer also will be on hand to meet boxing fans.

In 2005, the Tucson Hells Angels donated blankets, wheelchairs and cash to the Tohono O’odham Elder Center near San Xavier.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
