‘Witches’ Night Out’ scares up funds for good cause
Thursday, 31 October 2013 13:48
Pointy hats bobbed on their heads as women convened around tables. Brooms were parked and cauldrons of soup bubbled nearby.
It wasn’t a coven meeting of witches. It was Witchs’ Night Out sponsored by the Walk Stars Relay for Life team.
An occasional cackle escaped from among the night of laughter and relaxing. The worries of life were left outside the door.
On the tables little black cats held a fall mixture of corn candy while beguiling music filled the air.
Silver, feathers, sequins, shimmering tulle and large bows decorated the brimmed hats. An occasional spider or bat accompanied the dark laden ladies celebrating the approaching Hallow’s Eve.
Some were proud of their greenish complexion and long pointy noses. Others flipped their long stringy hair back from their faces knowing that they were very much in style with the season.
Hats, sock and witches attire varied, but all came for the same cause, to raise money for Relay for Life.
“We were amazed at the outfits the ladies wore,” said Carol Scheutze. The evening was better than expected.”
This is the first time the Walk Stars hosted a Witchs’ Night Out.
The next Relay for Life of the
Cuming County Area is April 11, 2014, at the Nielsen Community Center, West Point, from 6 p.m. until 12 a.m.
