Brooklyn Nets players to host a Halloween Monster Mash
BROOKLYN—Brooklyn Nets players Reggie Evans, Andray Blatche, and Tyshawn Taylor, along with Nets Super Hero BrooklyKnight, will host a Halloween Monster Mash for 50 kids at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
During the Halloween Monster Mash, the museum will be transformed into a spooky atmosphere for a family-friendly trick-or-treat outing alternative. Participating children will receive a Halloween costume from Party City to wear as they enjoy trick-or-treating inside the museum, as well as various delights, including a pizza party and ghoulish crafts.
This event is part of the Brooklyn Nets Assist program which stands to support four key pillars: Education, Athletics, Health & Wellness, and Community Development. Brooklyn Nets Assist is proudly presented by Baked In Brooklyn. Maimonides Medical Center is a supporting sponsor of Brooklyn Nets Assist.

About Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets, presented by SW24, were officially launched in April 2012 and play their home games at Barclays Center located at the crossroads of Brooklyn, Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues. A member of the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division, the Nets advanced to the NBA Playoffs in 2013 for the first time since 2007. Prior to its relocation to Brooklyn, the team was called the New Jersey Nets. Starting in 1977, the Nets played their first four seasons in New Jersey at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, before moving in 1981 to Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford (later renamed Continental Airlines Arena and IZOD Center). They remained in East Rutherford for 29 seasons until relocating to the Prudential Center in Newark in 2010. The Nets have reached the postseason 17 times, won four Atlantic Division titles and two Eastern Conference Championships, reaching the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.
