For a few hours on Oct. 20, Becky Swann’s house on Court Street was transformed into a Halloween destination as members of the $10 Club gathered for some spooky fun to raise money for children’s charities.
Group founder Kay Overbey said the group is about 10 years old and this was the first time the members had joined together for a Halloween party. “Becky Swann was hostess and she was great. She went all out,” Overbey said. “This is the first year we’ve done the witches party. I think it’s going to be an annual event because everyone enjoyed it.”
Swann said there were about 30 folks present and in addition to dressing up participants listened to a representative from Family Promise of Blount County.
“We had a real good program,” she said. “Each of us who are on boards of different organizations, we try to get support for each other’s causes so we give each other updates on events and where we can help. We just have a great time.”
Overbey said $10 Club is loads of fun. “Everyone is busy but this is something you can do where you can bring something to eat and drink and pitch in $10 for a good cause,” she said. “We’re always very much Blount County children-focused and all money stays in Blount County to different organizations.”
