YWCA of San Diego County will present the 10th annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®” fundraising walk. Men, alongside women and children, are invited to walk a mile in heels through downtown San Diego County to increase awareness of domestic violence in the community and help end the pervasive issue once and for all.
In celebration of Dia de los Muertos and Halloween, this party will feature spooky good libations, art-making activities, and musical experiences. Come in costume or just as you are, and bring a friend to get a scary good discount on tickets. This much-loved event sells out quickly—so buy tickets well in advance. Must be 21+ to attend.
