A unique fundraiser comes to the Hannibal American Legion Hall Saturday, October 24.

It's the first "Spooktacular Mouse Race," presented by Landon's Helping Paws. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the first race starting at 7.

Yes, the evening will feature real racing mice and yes, you will have the opportunity to pick winners through the evening. There will also be prizes galore for those in attendance.

The event is a fundraiser for Landon's Helping Paws, a non-profit organization that donates service dogs to children in northeast Missouri with special abilities. Training for these service dogs costs from $10,000 to $20,000. The organization will receive 100% of the proceeds from the event.
