Witches wanted

Goodfellows planning ‘spooky’ event

As the Halloween holiday approaches, members of the Romulus Goodfellows are thinking about Christmas.

This year the club is organizing the first Witches Night Out in the community as an effort to help fund the annual No Child Without A Christmas campaign.  

Witches Night Out is mid-week event that has exploded in popularity across the country during the past few years. The event has a huge following in several states where it has become a destination event drawing people from surrounding areas to attend. Attendees attend the celebration dressed as witches and warlocks and enjoy an evening of Halloween-themed entertainment.

In Romulus, the event is set for 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Romulus VFW Post 78, 39270  West Huron River Dr. The evening will include contests for the best witch, hat and broom; 50-50 raffles along with food and non-alcoholic beverages. Witch attire is highly recommended.

The cost for the event is $30 per witch and the event is limited to those 21 years of age or older, organizers said. 

No Child Without a Christmas has been a project of Goodfellows' organizations and their supporters for nearly a hundred years. Through their efforts, they have given the gift of a joyous Christmas to thousands of families with children, many of whom would not have had anything on their table or under the tree without the Goodfellows organizations. Romulus Goodfellows, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all contributions made are tax-deductible.
