PORTLAND, Ore. - Oct. 15, 2018 - PRLog -- NICU Families NW, a non-profit organization that builds community for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) families, will host its 2nd annual Wheelie Spooky Halloween Party on Sunday, October 28th from 2-4pm.

This inclusive event is an opportunity for children of all abilities and mobilities to participate in the tradition of Halloween Trick-or-Treating in an ADA compliant gymnasium. Children will have the opportunity to "trick-or-treat" at themed tables for candy, snacks, tokens, and toys, including allergen-free options.

From 2:00 to 2:30pm Wheelie Spooky is open with incremental admission to contain crowd size for kids with special sensory needs. (We recommend families RSVP to for the first half hour.) The Black Cat Cozy Corner will be available during the event for guests who need a quiet space to collect themselves.

Other event features include creepy creatures from the Portland Insectarium and a Magic Matter Exploration Station with color-changing slime and the opportunity for children to make their own "magic" potions.

"Last year's event garnered so much positive feedback from both guests and volunteers," says Anna David, Executive Director of NICU Families NW. "We've made changes specifically to be more inclusive for children with sensory challenges, and thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we've added some new activities this year to make our second annual event even more fun for all."

Major event sponsors include Dr. Korin Rasmussen, DC and Rose City Realtors as well as Advantis Credit Union, Advanced Pediatric Therapies, INC, and World of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry.

Wheelie Spooky will take place in the gymnasium at Evergreen Community Church (935 NE 33rd Ave, Portland Oregon. The event is free and open to kids of all ages with a "G" or "PG" audience in mind. For more information or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact: or visit:
