"Witches Ball" to Benefit SAF

"Witches Ball" to Benefit SAF

It’s back…One of the most spellbinding events of the fall, the Zonta Club of Oswego’s Witches Ball! On Friday, October 25 from 7:00 to 11:00 pm, the Lake Ontario Event & Conference Center will be filled with witches and warlocks for the 3rd Annual Witches Ball.

The Zonta Club of Oswego has once again teamed with a number of area businesses to host a bewitching evening of fun to benefit OCO Services to Aid Families program (SAF), the domestic violence and rape crisis program for Oswego County. Pictured here,e seated from left, are SAF Advocate Tiffany Sobrino and Zonta Members Iraina Gerchman and Connie McKinstry. Standing from left are Zonta Member Sonia Robinson, SAF Advocate Taylor Hart, Zonta Members Monica Bonney, Dorothy Bonney, Jacqueline Wallace, Allison McGinley, and Tammy Elowsky, and SAF Advocate Jake West.

“The work that SAF does is a perfect match for our vision of a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and that every woman is able to achieve her full potential. In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence,” said Zonta Member and Committee Chairperson Tammy Elowsky. “We were overwhelmed with the response we received for our initial Witches Ball. Last year’s was surpassed our expectations and we are witnessing even more excitement for this year’s Witches Ball.”

Open to those 21 and older the Zonta Club of Oswego’s “Witches’ Ball” is a Halloween Party featuring dancing, costume contests, other Halloween themed fun.

“We’re thrilled that the Zonta club is bringing back the Witches Ball,” said SAF Community Response Coordinator Stacie France. “The Zonta Club has supported us in many ways over the years and the Witches Ball is their most creative. It’s much more than a fundraiser, the event helps us raise awareness of domestic violence in Oswego County during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. “I invite community members to join us for the most exciting Halloween party of the year!”

Proceeds from the Zonta Club’s Witches Ball will help aid OCO’s SAF program. In the past year SAF provided support and advocacy for approximately 600 victims and survivors of domestic violence in Oswego County.
