Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will all be present for a virtual Halloween event hosted by the New York Restoration Project.
The annual Hulaween fundraising gala is usually a big event with star-studded guests dressed in over-the-top costumes.
This year, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the event is going virtual.
For $10, attendees can contribute to a charitable cause while seeing the Sanderson sisters at different points throughout the night. Companies and organizations can also register to sponsor the event for tickets ranging from $6,000 to $40,000.
Proceeds go to the New York Restoration Project, an environmental and social justice organization founded by Midler in 1995 that partners with New York communities to provide, maintain and enhance natural spaces and resources. Funds raised from the gala will be used to "[create] more green space for underserved communities to grow their own food, connect and access safe spaces directly in their neighborhood,” according to a press release.
Midler’s foundation has already planted trees, renovated gardens and restored parks across New York’s five boroughs.
The one-hour Halloween celebration, themed “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover” will take place on Friday, Oct. 30.
The event will feature some “spectacularly spooky guests" and will be one of the “most delightful, family-friendly and pandemic-safe Halloween shows of the year," according to organizers.
More details about the event are forthcoming.
Disney-owned Freeform announced “Hocus Pocus” will air 14 times during its “31 Nights of Halloween” programming.
In March, director Adam Shankman announced that he will partner with Disney+ on the production of a “Hocus Pocus” sequel. It is unclear who will star in the film or when it will be released.
