Alabama Ghostbusters uses the slogan “Geeks for Good” to illustrate how they take aim at challenges in our community, just like their fictional heroes took aim at creatures from the ghostly realm. Back in the summer, the group hosted a showing of Ghostbusters II at the Alabama Theatre and a related auction of Ghostbusters memorabilia, all in the good cause of raising money for tornado relief.
On Oct. 21, representatives of the group paid a visit to the Community Foundation offices and added $3,000 to the Alabama Tornado Recovery Fund. The money came from the Tornado Relief Auction and matching dollars from the Campaign for Liberty.
Alabama Ghostbusters took on a serious challenge and gave it their trademark twist, showing that you can be creative, have a good time AND do something to help others. Thank you for giving us all a boost as we work together to help people rebuild lives and livelihoods across our state.
