Two valley businesses are celebrating their 20th years in business by collaborating for a month-long event that will benefit four local charities and culminate with an anniversary party on Saturday, September 20 at HalloweenMart.
The joint Balloons With A Twist/HalloweenMart 20th Anniversary Party will take place from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at HalloweenMart, 6230 S. Decatur Blvd.
