From botanical witches to those sporting classic pointed hats, a wide array of ghoulish gals attended PeaceWorks’ 10th annual Witches Tea.
Outfitted in hats and brooms, the witches came to Blue Mountain Kitchens on Oct. 8 to support the fundraiser for the organization that offers assistance to survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
PeaceWorks provides services including a shelter for west Jefferson, Park and Clear Creek counties, as well as clients from metro Denver, other counties in Colorado and sometimes out of state.
Lori Cuno, PeaceWorks executive director, shared the importance of the events the nonprofit hosts.
“It brings the community together,” she said. “We want to give them a voice in ending domestic violence.”
The event featured seasonal food, warm apple cider, tarot readings and a costume contest in addition to a silent auction.
Natalie Hammang, the assistant director of PeaceWorks, described the event as great for networking and the most fun event the organization hosts all year.
Hammang called it a “unique event where everyone can be themselves and everyone is welcome.”
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 36.8% of Colorado women and 30.5% of Colorado men experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking in their lives.
If you or someone you know is dealing with domestic violence, the PeaceWorks 24/7 hotline number is 303-838-8181, and the National Domestic Violence Hotline is 1.800.799.SAFE.
