Arizona Ghostbusters
The Arizona Ghostbusters represent a costuming fan club bound together by their mutual love for the Ghostbusters franchise in all its forms, and the personal pride and accomplishment that comes with volunteering. Their Ghostbusters costumes allow them to draw extra attention to many well deserving charities. The smiles and joy that their costumes generate help them give to the community and put great meaning into their group. Since forming five years ago, the Arizona Ghostbusters have worked closely with the Multiple Sclerosis Society, American Diabetes Association, and the Children's Cancer Network for a Christmas Toy Drive and subsequent toy deliveries at Phoenix Children's Hospital and Cardon's Children's Medical Center.
