As if the costume contest, two-hour open bar and Georgetown Cupcakes weren’t enough, the “Violence is Scary” Halloween bash is also a fundraiser to support the end of domestic violence. This Halloween Eve, Washingtonians will gather at ONE Lounge for an evening of Halloween festivities benefitting the National Network to End Domestic Violence, known as NNEDV.

On Saturday, October 29th from 6:30 until 10:30 p.m., guests can step into a spooky scene where the night is focused on advancing the fight against domestic violence. All proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction benefit the National Network to End Domestic Violence. NNEDV is a leader in the fight against domestic violence offering support and advocacy programs. Making sure the needs of victims of domestic violence are heard, NNEDV works with policymakers to further advocate for the cause and support its victims.

The Annual “Violence in Scary” event will be held at ONE Lounge and the bash will feature many classic Halloween party events, such as a costume contest and spooky Halloween music (Monster Mash, anyone?) Additionally, there will be hors d’oeuvres, trick-or-treats, snacks, live music, the silent auction and a two-hour stocked open bar.

Tickets for the event are $40 in advance and can be ordered here. Limited tickets will be available at the door for $50. Guests must be 21 years old with a valid ID.
