Witches Night Out 2020 – The Details
To our Witches:
After trying every incantation and much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 11th annual Witches Night Out in Joliet. The health and safety of our witches, mystics, artisans, volunteers, along with the reputation of Witches Night Out is our primary concern since the crystal ball is foggy on how this virus will be impacting our lives this Fall. We will be bringing you some great online witchy fun through our Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter and on our website so make sure you are followed on your favorite social media platforms to catch the latest information and fun!
We love the enchanted atmosphere of our witches coming together to raise funds for our Recipient Agencies. Support is more important than ever for our 2020 Recipient Agencies: CASA of River Valley, Guardian Angel Community Services, and Stepping Stones Treatment and Recovery Center.
It has been a difficult year for everyone, and our Recipient Agencies are no exception. Please consider making a donation equal to what you would have paid for admission. Please click HERE to make your donation today and THANK YOU!
We appreciate your love and support of our Recipient Agencies through our annual Witches Night Out event and thank you for your support and understanding. We wish you all good health and to see you in
