The smell of candy is in the air again! It’s time for Best Roofing’s 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat event to benefit The Pantry of Broward on Saturday, October 18th from 4-7 pm at Best Roofing. Last year (Year One!) was quite a success! We served over 15,000 pieces of candy to over 200 children. We ran out of snow cone cups, popped 100 lbs of popcorn, and gave away 250 pumpkins to children to decorate. And perhaps most importantly we raised in food donations and cash close to $10,000 for The Pantry of Broward.
Last year, Trunk or Treat was visited by over 200 families and we are expanding to accommodate larger numbers this year. Best Roofing’s Second Annual Trunk or Treat will have much more than free candy and decorated trunks. Once again we will be providing free kids activities such as a bounce house, pumpkin patch, free concessions and much more.
It is important to create safe venues for our community’s children. Let the community know you support The Food Pantry of Broward by participating in this exciting event!

- Prizes for the best-decorated trunks
- Costume Awards
NEW THIS YEAR!
Jake’s Halloween Costume Drive! For our trunk or treat partners, The Pantry of Broward and HOPE South Florida, Halloween costumes do not make the list of essentials in the budget. Therefore, Best Roofing is helping to offset costume costs by collecting new and gently used costumes. All costumes must be delivered to Best Roofing no later than Friday, October 10th.
WHEN: Saturday, October 18th 4-7:00 pm
WHERE: Best Roofing, 1600 NE 12 Terrace, Fort Lauderdale 33305
