As part of the Center’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities for this coming October, we invite you to join us on October 20 at Jergel’s for the third annual Witch’s Ball, a night of fun, food, costume contests, and copious amounts of Halloween based spirit(s)! Save the date now and expect more information soon, but in the mean time read on to discover the tale of last year’s event.
“The Witch’s Ball” of 2015
To embrace the most sinister time of the year — while still looking to support a good cause, of course —over 60 people donned costumes and crept out into the night to attend Crisis Center North’s second annual Witch’s Ball. The annual Halloween party and fundraiser was held at Jergel’s Rhythm Grill on October 29.
The band Dizzy Woosh provided the live entertainment while attendees enjoyed their food and Witch’s Brew, an alcoholic staple of the event that changes yearly: This year’s brew was a mix of cranberry, cinnamon, and whiskey, provided courtesy of Western Spirits.
Also keeping with the Halloween spirit, prizes, provided by Costume World and by Grandpa Joe’s Candy in the Strip, were awarded for the best costumes. Attendees also had the opportunity to win several small raffle baskets as well as a couple’s massage at the Sewickley Spa.
Though the Halloween season has passed, those horrified that they missed their chance to join in should fear not: The next Witch’s Ball will be held on October 20, 2016 at Jergel’s. Be prepared.
