Manatee Crime Stoppers – 16th Annual Halloween Safe Kids Night

Community Partners and Sponsors!

It’s hard to believe a new school year has started and that Fall is just around the corner! (looking forward to the dryer & cooler weather!!)

Crime Stoppers of Manatee County is pleased to announce that we will again partner with the DeSoto Square Mall for this year’s 16th Annual Halloween Safe Kids Night. The event will be held on Halloween, Thursday October 31st, 2019 from 5:30pm – 8:30pm at the DeSoto Square Mall in Bradenton. The event is free for the public to attend and there will be plenty of fun and candy for the whole family. Information regarding the event will soon be posted on our website – and on our Facebook Page.

This well established event consistently attracts over 3000 children & families. This year’s event will be our 4th year at the DeSoto Square Mall. We anticipate another huge turnout at this centralized venue with businesses in addition to community organizations. Businesses and organizations who work with children & families do not want to miss this opportunity for positive exposure and marketing.

This event provides children and families with a safe alternative for “Trick or Treating”. Rather than going door to door, families can visit the DeSoto Square Mall and enjoy an enhanced Halloween experience. Crime Stoppers is providing a venue with plenty of supervision, games, activities, and candy while also promoting public safety & community services available to families.

Although the event is over a month away, the space made available for the event at the DeSoto Square Mall, provides more room for businesses, community groups, churches, civic organizations & government agencies to participate as a “Booth Host” or event partner. Manatee Crime Stoppers is actively seeking additional booth hosts and event partners at this time. Participation as a “Booth Host” is free to non-profit, civic, community and religious organizations.

Organizations interested in participating in 2019 as “booth hosts, partners and/or sponsors must register their participation by clicking on the registration link The registration link may also be found on the Crime Stoppers homepage, directly below the fliers. For more Information about the event and sponsorships, send an email to

Any organization with questions is encouraged to contact Manatee Crime Stoppers via email at or by calling the Manatee Crime Stoppers administrative line at 792-2732.

There will be an organizational meeting for all organizations participating in the 2019 event. The meeting will be at the DeSoto Square Mall Food Court on Tuesday 9/10/2019 @ 4:30pm. Organizations seeking more information and who are considering participation are also welcome to attend.

REMINDER – Program Kick-off Change of Venue

REMINDER, Due to a conflict with another activity scheduled for the Salvation Army Worship Center, our Program Kick-Off on Thursday, August 8, will be held at the 53rd Avenue Church of Christ (3412 53rd Ave. E.). It is less than a mile east of the normal location on the south side of SR-70 across from the shopping center that houses Ollie’s.

Start time is still 7:00 p.m. and those responsible for setting up information booths may arrive around 6:00 p.m. Booths will be established in the fellowship hall in the rear of the facility. The general meeting will take place in the auditorium so you may enter through the front doors.

Eagle project reviews will take place in the large classroom off of the fellowship hall and candidates and reviewers should enter through the outside door (across from the handicap parking spaces).

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see many of you there. Please remember that should you have a conflict with Thursday being a back-to-school program night, you should invite a member of your unit who does not have such a conflict to sub for you. Roundtable (and this Program Kick-Off) is open to any of your adult members, perhaps your C.O.R. or Institutional Head, or a parent who is available.

Mac Aldrich, Manatee District Program Chair

!!! Program Kick-off Change of Venue !!!

Attention Manatee District Scouters,

We have experienced an issue that necessitated us moving Program Kick-off from The Salvation Army to the 53rd Ave Church of Christ (3412 53rd Ave E, Bradenton, FL 34203). If you get this message, please tell everyone you know that may plan to attend. Hopefully we catch everyone and get them to the right place.

Thank you for helping me get the word out.
