I’m pleased to announce that I’ve donated two copies of Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World to a paranormal charity fundraiser for Bella Tucker, a little girl who became extremely ill on Easter Sunday and is now facing a long, difficult recovery and not without significant hardship for her family.

The paranormal event will take place Saturday, February 5, 2011 at 3 p.m. at the Harley House in Lunenburg, Mass. Several paranormal personalities are pulling together for this event, among them Jeff and Shannon Sylvia from Ghost Hunters International and Paranormal State, Keith and Sandra Johnson of Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State, Brian Harnois, Dustin Pari, and Lisa Dowllaby, all of Ghost Hunters; author David Manch, and Mike Baker, director of 14 Degrees.

The evening will include presentations, face painting, raffles (I’m assuming Skeletons will be a raffle prize), and a ghost hunt; psychic medium Beckah Boyd and occultist Katie Boyd will be on hand. 100% of the proceeds will go to Bella Tucker and her family.
