October's Charity Focus -2022

Our charity focus for the Thinning of the Veil ball helps to assist families with the passing of their loved ones. In many traditions and cultures, October to November is a period to remember our ancestors and loved ones. We honor our family and friends who have ‘passed beyond the veil’ that divides the plane of our physical world with the plane of the spirit world. It is believed that during this season, the veil is thinner, and it is easier to commune with the spirits and energies in this other plane. Strange and unusual things come out to play and our ball is a celebration of this liminal season of magic!

We are proud to announce our charity focus for the ball is The Order of the Good Death. We will have a raffle table with amazing items from our sponsors and vendors. Proceeds from these ticket sales support important charities that align with our values.

The Order's mission is helping to ease the transition of death. That means committing to staring down your death fears—whether it be your own death, the death of those you love, the pain of dying, the afterlife (or lack thereof), grief, corpses, bodily decomposition, or all of the above. Accepting that death itself is natural and part of our wheel of life, but the death anxiety and terror of modern culture are not.

This unconventional 501-3C is one of the leaders in the Death Positive movement by "BUILDING A MEANINGFUL, ECO-FRIENDLY, AND EQUITABLE END OF LIFE."
