Shocktober, The Arc of Loudoun’s largest fundraising event, is teaming up with Ford’s Fish Shack and The Conche to help supporters create monster cocktails, killer appetizers, and deadly desserts for their Shock Haunt viewing parties this season.
“I’ve been involved with The Arc of Loudoun both personally and professionally for a long time. To be able to support their mission in this fun way. I’m all in. I’m even bringing my ‘Angry Chef’ persona to teach the class,” stated Tony Stafford, Chef Owner of Ford’s Fish Shack, member of The Arc of Loudoun’s Development and Marketing Committee.
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Shocktober has moved all its offerings to virtual experiences for 2020 and even added new features. The new Shock Haunt classes will help fans to learn from Shocktober’s haunt experts how to bring the haunt experience home.
