Things were jumping on Thursday night at The Players Club in Wellington, as the first “Girls Night Out” event was held in the Western Communities… and we are not just referring to the people at the Beachside Ryde Fitness Center booth wearing Kangoo Jumps!
“Girls Night Out”, which will be held on a monthly basis, is designed to be a night of good old girl chat, fabulous drink and food specials, music by DJ GFY and lots of shopping! The first “Girls Night Out”featured over 20 vendors, with their tempting merchandise ranging from jewelry, purses, spa treatments, insurance advisors, makeup consultants, fashionable clothing, spray-tan specialists and of course, the Kangoo Jumps people bouncing around the room! But, while everyone was enjoying the whole ambiance of the evening, there was a benefit to the community,too. As part of the event,each vendor was asked to donate a prize to be used as a raffle prize, and the money raised from the sale of raffle tickets was donated to Horses Healing Hearts charity www.horseshealingheartsusa.org. Each month, there will be a different local charity chosen to benefit from the raffle proceeds.
“We were overwhelmed by the response from the community who turned out for a night of fun and charity” stated Dolores Schlick, Director of Catering at The Players Club. “The whole upper level of The Players Club was packed with ladies enjoying an evening out and simultaneously supporting, a worthy, local charity. We are pleased to provide the venue for this dual-purposed event.”
My Sisters Closet, who has participated in similar events, invited other established vendors to participate, ensuring the high quality of the event’s merchandise. Maureen Gross, Director of Development and Community Outreach for Phelps Media Group, also helped in procuring qualified vendors and publicizing the event. “We envision that this event will grow to be a great, monthly, social event in the community, and it will increasingly impact many local charitable efforts—it is a win/win!”,Gross explains.
Lizabeth Olszewski, Founder of Horses Healing Hearts, was on hand that night with some volunteers to sell the raffle tickets. “We are so pleased and honored to be a part of this first ‘Girls Night Out’. We were able to not only increase our charity’s exposure in the community, but through the raffle sales, we were able to raise a significant amount of money.”, stated Olszewski. Horses Healing Hearts helps children, who have been hurt by a family member who has an addiction problem, to heal emotionally, build self-esteem, and learn life-coping skills by working with horses.
