TROY, N.Y. – A Hurricane Sandy fundraiser in Troy is getting spooky.
At 6:00 p.m. on Saturday night at the Irish Mist Pub and Restaurant, paranormal experts and lovers of the dark and mysterious, will gather for a lecture, Q & A session and “ghost-tour” of all abandoned floors within the building.
The lecture will be run by John Tobin, founder of an Albany area Paranormal Research Team (Glory Haunt Hounds) and co-host on radio show “Keeping the Spirits Alive,” (http://www.para-x.com) which '…tries to make local history more appealing, by combining it with potential hauntings or paranormal activity, with a fun and light-hearted approach,' according to Tobin.
The night will feature Steve Di Schiavi of Travel Channel's “The Dead Files,” who will participate in the lecture and Q & A session, and lead an investigative run-through of the premises.
Di Schiavi hosts “The Dead Files,” a series that runs on the metaphysical premise that 'every property has a story to be told,' according to the Travel Channel.
Di Schiavi, along with his co-host Amy Allan, investigates unexplained paranormal phenomena in allegedly haunted locations, all across America.
Steve Di Schiavi is a retired NYC homicide detective, who was actively in service for 21 years.
This spectral night in Troy will include at least one other paranormal celebrity, who will remain a surprise until the event begins.
Tickets are a little steep, at $50 dollars per head, but the money is going to a great cause, and the fundraiser will make a positive impact in the lives of Hurricane Sandy victims.
You can purchase tickets to the event at the door of the Irish Mist Pub and Restaurant at 285 2nd Street in Troy, or online at http://www.gloryhaunthounds.com.
