The Hermosa Friends Foundation Second Annual Halloween Decoration contest played a trick that became a treat for the three winners. The treat was cash prizes for the winners. The trick was the winners had to donate their prizes to the charity of their choice.

Courtney and Rick Unser received the Best Overall prize for the cast of scary characters they assembled in front of their 16th Street, walk street home. To receive their $1,000 prize, they chose the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Los Angeles (for Breast Cancer Research). The Scariest House prize went to Robin and Sixto Caceres for their assembly of werewolves and skeletons in front of their 17th Street, walk street home. They chose the Hermosa Beach Woman’s Club to receive their $500 prize. 

The Tabak family (Rob, Gaby, Olivia and Jackson) received the Best Use of Space award for their collection of pumpkins and Halloweeen figures. They chose Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles to receive their $500 prize.

The Hermosa Friends Foundation has donated over $100,000 to charities since its founding in 2016. At its fifth anniversary celebration last month it donated a total of $10,000 to Leadership Hermosa Beach, SPCA LA, the Peter Zippi Memorial Fund, the Hermosa Beach Sister Cities, and the Torrance Teachers Foundation.
