Toads and toadstools, magic mirrors, princesses and pumpkins are just a few of the fairy tale delights at the 12th Annual Witches’ Ball, sponsored by the Red Hills Pagan Council (RHPC). “Once Upon A Time,” featuring Bedhead Betty, will be on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at the American Legion Hall, 229 Lake Ella Drive, from 8:00pm to 12:30am.
Over the years, the Witches’ Ball has raised money for the American Red Cross, Comfort Pets, Refuge House, the Gadsden County Humane Society and the Tallahassee Museum’s animal program, to name a few. Now for the second year, a portion of the Ball’s proceeds will be donated to support the work of Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization which is dedicated to the rescue of dogs (and cats) from abuse, abandonment or other dire circumstances, and placing them in caring adoptive homes. For more information, go to www.bigdogrescue.com
Local favorite Bedhead Betty’s very danceable covers may include anything from “old school, new school, and some cheese” to folk, lounge flavors and soul. The evening’s festivities also include a silent auction, 50-50 drawing, door prizes, tarot readers and a clandestine costume contest – anonymous judges will roam the room and hand out prizes to adults and children. Representatives from Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue will be on hand to answer questions about their program and adoptions.
Doors open at 8:00pm. Tickets are $13 at the door; $10 in advance at Crystal Connection on North Monroe Street, at Athena’s Garden in Railroad Square, or online. Children under 12 are free!
