Witches line up for their brew served by a pirate

Although it's the Outlaw Brewing Co., these law-abiding cow'boys' had the witch Cherie under control

The coven of witches that gathered in Southampton was none other than the Chantry Island Cham-bettes.

Witches and their cauldron welcomed the others

Each year they don costumes that rival a gala ball to celebrate Hallowe'en in fun and to raise funds at their annual Ghouls' Night Out. 

This year, proceeds from the event held October 28th at the Outlaw Brewing Co. in Southampton, go toward the Chapman House Hospice in Owen Sound.

The Cham-bettes are a prolific fund-raising group made up of local women who support various projects, community groups and the local hospital among others and they do like to dress up!

Some were scary ... some not so much

This witch had 'Medusa-like' tresses

This 'lovely' said she was "...so pleased with her recent nose surgery - especially the hook"

A final total raised with admission by donation and the Silent Auction Games has yet to be determined.
