Star Hill Ranch
The Halloween by Design 2019 Classic Monster Bash took place at the historic Star Hill Ranch on Saturday, Oct. 19 and drew more than 300 guests dressed to the nines in their most festive Halloween garb. The second annual immersive Halloween experience and fundraising celebration transported guests to a spectacular world of classic horror films designed by renowned Hollywood set decorator Bart Brown while offering a festive evening of fundraising and entertainment. The spooktacular lineup included live music from Kelly Willis and Lurleen Ladd, scratch-made dishes and craft cocktails from notable Austin chefs, aura readings, casino gaming, a live auction, a fantasy makeup booth and plenty of Instagrammable moments — all to help raise funds and awareness for four Central Texas non-profit organizations. The 2019 event was co-chaired by Kip and Melinda Garvey.
