Looking For A Wonderful Witchy Hat?

IMG_9249 copy c just the hatWondering where to obtain your own witchy hat for the Wonderful Witchy Women luncheon fundraiser? Two local shops come to mind – Black Cat Hats and Out of the Envelope – both conveniently located in downtown Los Gatos. Don’t wait too long, though, both shops tend to run low on selections as the date for the Wonderful Witchy Women fundraiser approaches. Funny about that.  😉

Another option is to make your own! Several attendees profess to visiting their local crafts store and designing their own from scratch. I think this is why there is such an incredible variety of designs at the event. In fact, some of the most creative witchy hats in the past have started with a simple idea manifesting into an awesome creation worthy of unending Kodak moments.

Whether you decide to make your own OR drop in on a local shop, make sure you get your tickets and join us! We’d love to see your wonderful witchy hat!

The Candy Man Can…and more

Remember how I said there are many unique things about the Wonderful Witchy Women luncheon fundraiser that makes it so fun? Well, read on…

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew…candymen

Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two..

The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can…


The Candy Man can ‘cause he sells boxes of chocolates for a raffle tix or two…

Seek out the tuxedo-garbed band of Candy men strolling around the venue to purchase box(es) of gourmet chocolates from local chocolatier, Chocolate Dream Box [1 box = $25, 2+ boxes = $20 each, and 5 boxes for $100] to obtain your raffle tickets for the drawing of an exclusive, one-of-WWW CANDYMAN TRAY PICTUREa-kind, Aquamarine ring by perennial Wonderful Witchy Women supporter, Joe Escobar Diamonds

Each year, J. Escobar designs a stunning piece of diamond-studded jewelry for our annual auction and it always boggles our collective minds how they are able to come up with one gorgeous design after another. And this year’s piece is no exception.

wwwc2015-6As this will certainly be a memorable affair, stop by the Step & Repeat banner to capture a few fun moments with your friends.

Head up to the multitude of themed baskets and
one-of-a-kind signature experiences for bidding. Fitness packages, photography sessions, spa treatments, intimate gourmet dinner parties, sports and theater tickets, sailing excursions, getaways near and far and much, much more. There is a broad variety of auction items sure to appeal to everyone.

wwwc2015-187When the doors open, find your table, admire the unique custom-designed centerpiece (remember, you can purchase one for yourself), savor the Autumn-inspired luncheon, and enjoy the program. Representatives from each of the charities supported this year will share stories from the work they’ve done and remind us all why we have gathered together. As in year’s past, there won’t be a dry eye in the room.

A Spectacular Scene of Wonderful Witchy Hats

What makes the Wonderful Witchy Women with a Cause luncheon fundraiser so entertaining and unique? Well, there are so many details to choose from but let’s start with the most obvious of them all – the original, stylish, eccentric, chic, outrageous, whimsical, haunting, darling, fascinating, inventive, and downright fabulous witch hats that grace this annual event

These are certainly not your run-of-the-mill Halloween witch hats. No, no, no…simple black pointed hats are not for this crowd. Many spent hours and hours of creative energy designing their masterpieces (some in big groups with a theme)…while others (such as myself) shopped around and found a few pre-made showpieces. And if you’re looking for a special witchy hat yourself, check Out of the Envelope in downtown Los Gatos for some interesting ideas.hats2
The result of such careful planning and creating is a veritable fashion show of witch hats you won’t find anywhere else…and won’t want to miss! See you at the luncheon!
