Witches Night Out-009        Witches Night Out-029

Who We Are

We are working and retired women from various professional backgrounds, jobs and careers

who want to make a difference for women who are less fortunate than we are.

There are about twenty-five of us.  Our ages vary from 35 to 75 years old.  We all live in the Will County area. 

Most of us didn’t know each other before joining the committee.

You can join the fun!  You will feel good about volunteering your time and talent to help someone less fortunate than you are.  Contact us:  joliet@witchesnightout.com
