Spook Central's Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Plans & Donation Thank Yous

 By Paul Rudoff on May. 24, 2014 at 5:23 PM , Categories: Personal, Spook Central
For the benefit of those of you who haven't been playing along at home, a little history... Due to Hurricane Sandy destroying my old home and leaving my family homeless for over a month (we lived in a Red Cross emergency shelter for six weeks before we found a new permanent place to live), Spook Central went on hiatus for a year until I was a bit more back on my feet. I reopened the site for Halloween last year, and it remained open for three months until my father passed away in late January. For the past four months, Spook Central was back on hiatus, with the only posts being about the deaths of two prominent members of the Ghostbusters community: franchise co-creator Harold Ramis and Ghosthead extraordinaire Doreen Mulman.

Although I still have a lot of personal matters to take care of, I felt that with June being the 30th anniversary of the franchise, it was the perfect time to reopen Spook Central (again!). Thanks to the help of Spook Central staff member Matthew Jordan, I have a flurry of updates to post over the course of the month. Be sure to check out Spook Central's Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary June Calendar of Events for the current schedule (subject to change, of course).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made donations to my family in the wake of my father's death. I was totally blown away by the generosity of my fellow Ghostheads all over the world. I have been tossing it around in my head over the past few months whether to post a public list of all donations received from family, friends, and Ghostheads. I know that some people who make donations like to be anonymous, but I felt it would be a bit disrespectful of me not to publicly acknowledge each and every person who helped my family in our time of need. I'd like to give a special thanks to Chad Paulson for making a PayPal donation link and image to solicit donations for my family without me ever asking, suggesting, or hinting that it be done. The last thing on my mind after my father died was asking people for money.
