Metairie Bank Northshore Makes Multiyear Commitment to Monster Mash

Metairie Bank Northshore has committed to a three-year title sponsorship of Monster Mash, the only fundraiser for the St. Tammany Parish Hospital Parenting Center.

The bank's investment will extend beyond Monster Mash to include community events such as child car-seat safety checks at its Covington and Mandeville branches and financial literacy classes at the STPH Parenting Center.

Its support will contribute much needed funding to STPH Parenting Center programs that include Cuddle Buddies and Play & Learn; infant and child CPR classes; First Steps visits to new mothers; breastfeeding support groups; and nutrition classes for all ages.

After over three decades, Monster Mash has become a community tradition that draws more than 4,000 people to Covington's Bogue Falaya Park for Halloween-themed fun. 

This year's event will take place on Saturday, October 21. For more information or to become involved with Monster Mash, visit or call 985-898-4435.
