Treasure Coast Wildlife Center prepares 'witchy' fundraiser
By: Gaylon Parker, Hometown News
MARTIN COUNTY – There will be a host of surprises in store for this year’s annual Treasure Coast Wildlife center “Ghoula,” and organizers say they are creating a witches’ brew of fun. This year’s Halloween-themed event will be the “Ghoula Witches Coven,” and the award-winning, one-of-a-kind event will feature a four-course dinner, open bar, a witch’s fair to explore and many other surprises.
The “Ghoula,” which is a play on the word, “gala,” will be on Oct. 28 from 6 to 10 p.m., and Executive Director Dan Martinelli said it is a way for adults to have a little Halloween fun of their own.
“We’ve been doing this for more than a decade, and it’s been quite successful,” Mr. Martinelli said. “The last three years have been sellout events, and well in advance to the date. The community support for this organization since the 1970s has been terrific.
“We have a lot of friends in the community, and they are happy to support us.”
“The sisters welcome you to this one-time-only adventure to join their coven at the Hammock House. Power up your phone or bring your camera, there will be delights and tricks at every turn. The witches’ coven is a sacred place so seating is very limited and has been a sold-out event in years past. If you dare to join us, it will truly be a night to remember,” according to a press release.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center, and it is perhaps the biggest fundraiser of the year for the TCWC. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased online.
“This is actually almost a dinner-theater event, and it is one that people enjoy coming to and participating in and it attracts a large and supportive crowd,” Mr. Martinelli said. “It’s different every year and we want people to be surprised. There will be some witchy things going on and there will be music and songs and entertainment of all kinds.”…
