Lurleen Ladd, Founder of Halloween By Design

Who’s Behind It?

Founder Lurleen Ladd’s love of Halloween began as a child with annual Halloween parties thrown in her family’s garage, complete with costumes, crepe paper, and bobbing for apples. She continued this tradition with her own children. Over time, the family party became a fundraiser for The Shade Project, a non-profit founded by Lurleen and her husband, Dr. Dan Ladd.

Halloween by Design draws on those many past successful events but has expanded to include amazing art and design. Broadening the focus also means bringing more non-profits into the mix to raise much needed funds for local organizations.
