Girls’ Night Out, sponsored by the United Way of St. Francois County, will offer a fun-filled evening for local women while helping Season of Hope bring Christmas cheer.
The twice-yearly event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 3. at Twin Oaks Vineyard and Winery in Farmington. The cost is $20.
“It is always a great evening,” said Jackie Berry, United Way Board member and Girls’ Night Out chairperson, “…and the best thing, every penny contributed stays right here in St. Francois County to help our community.”
According to Berry, the evening will include free wine tasting, water, soda, and a host of delicious goodies from the Girls’ Night Out committee. In addition, Qdoba Mexican Grill will provide chips and salsa, Steak and Shake will offer their famous chili and a professional baker will have some wonderful baked goods.
Just like in years past, Girls’ Night Out will benefit St. Francis County Community Partnership’s Season of Hope. Patrons are asked to bring an unwrapped toy to help make a child’s Christmas.
“Come join us and help kick off the Christmas Season,” Berry said. “It is always a good time.”
The event will also include a silent auction. Among those businesses who have included items for the auction are MAB Cupcakes, Soaring Eagle Distributing, Hubs Pub, Benham Street Grill, Pasta House, a gift basket from Ohh La La Salon, Trendz Salon, Leadbelt Beer, Shamrock Restaurant and Auffenberg Chevrolet Buick GMC just to name a few.
“GNO is a win, win, win,” Berry said. “It’s a win for United Way, Season of Hope, and all of the ladies who join us.”
All proceeds will benefit the 28 local agencies funded by the United Way of St. Francois County and help the organization reach out to members of the community who are in need of help.
