What does Randy Savage, Ebenezer Scrooge, a human piñata, a witch, a ghoul and the spring season have in common? Each competed (and won their category) at Wouch Maloney’s 3rd annual Halloween costume contest. The annual contest raises money for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Philadelphia.
How the Costume Contest Began
Now in its third year, employees at Wouch Maloney CPAs & Business Advisors look forward to the annual Halloween Costume Contest which raises money for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Since masks were part of everyone’s daily attire in 2020, it was a natural idea to find a way to incorporate masks as a creative way to raise money for Team Wouch Maloney and the annual walk.
Members of the Corporate Social Responsibility team, known as the WM Helps committee, came up with five costume categories:
- Best Overall
- Most Unexpected
- Most Original
- Best Homemade
- Most Comedic
The event has grown in popularity and is one of the most anticipated employee events at the firm. In 2022, a sixth category was added: Scariest. The inaugural award winner was Mark Cieri who donned a ghoulish costume.

Fun for a Good Cause
Employees have participated in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Philadelphia long before the costume contest was introduced. Many employees know someone or have loved ones who have been affected by Alzheimer’s.
In addition to Team Wouch Maloney’s ongoing fundraising efforts, the one-day goal for the 2022 costume contest was to raise $1.031 in honor of Halloween. We are proud to report that we met that goal.
