Ghosts & Giggles

Reports of mysterious experiences and encounters are woven into the history of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. On April 20 at 8 p.m., the lighter side of the paranormal is explored as the ACFL&MH presents Ghosts & Giggles, a frightfully funny fundraiser featuring comedienne Karen Rontkowski, pet psychic Sonya King and host comedian David Kaye. Proceeds benefit the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. The $25 Donation includes two drink vouchers, “Spirits” courtesy of Duquesne Pilsner.

In keeping with the “spirit” of this fundraiser, the ACFL&MH is raffling off the opportunity to be part of a paranormal investigation at the library and music hall led by celebrity investigator TJ Porfeli. Four winners will join Porfeli and his team on June 22.

Tickets are $10 each or three for $25 and are available at the ACFL&MH circulation desk during library hours or at the Ghosts & Giggles comedy event.
