Dover, DE – On Saturday, September 8th, Noble’s Pond, Delaware’s premier 55+ community, hosted Girl’s Night Out to Fight MS. The event was part of the Noble’s Pond commitment to supporting the great work the MS Society does, from raising funds for much needed research to providing local programs and services to those afflicted with the disease. “The rate of MS is so high in Delaware, and particularly high among women,” said Colleen Ostafy, the Lifestyle Director at Noble’s Pond and an event organizer whose daughter has multiple sclerosis. “Through efforts like this we can move closer to the day when M S will stand for Mystery Solved.” And in fact, the “Yeah, I Fight Like A Girl” evening moved enough participation to contribute well over $10,500 to the Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Way to go, Girls!
Of course joining the fight that night offered more than a few perks for the some 200 women who came out. They were treated to a heavenly Hollywood-esque evening of complimentary wine, signature cocktails and sumptuous hors d’oeuvres from a host of local eateries. Getting behind the cause and serving up tasty treats were area favorites including Abbott’s Grill, Main Street Market, McGlynn’s Pub, Classic Cakes II, Sheridan’s Irish Pub, Vincenzo’s and Vitale’s Ice Cream. The final touch? A Tinsel Town themed delight by Patty Cakes.
Other highlights included a fashion show by Blooming Boutique of Milford, DE, with Tourette Williams providing Mary Kay makeup stylings for the runway models. Harris School of Business provided two talented ladies to style the models hair. Guests also enjoyed a fun-filled silent auction of must-have goodies…everything from Fire Fly concert tickets to handmade quilts, jewelry to gift certificates, wine baskets to spa days. And one lucky lady walked away the winner of a three-day, two- night, loaded-with-extras weekend for two at the Rehoboth Beach Henlopen Hotel in the Girls Getaway Raffle. Included in the weekend is an “Ahhhhhhh” spa day for two at Bad Hair Day Beauty and Body Shop.
All evening long, hot sounds by DJ Dee-Va had ladies up and dancing. While others sat down to soothing chair massages provided by Harris School of Business. And because no Girls Night Out would be complete without shopping, many local retailers were on hand. Barb’s Good Scents, Bead-A-Licious, Celebrating Home, Heart of Smyrna, Lia Sophia, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Seestone Jewelry, Suds Bar and Tastefully Simple, all offered up so many irresistible somethings to take home that evening.
While clearly not an evening one would soon forget, C. M. Baker Photography captured complimentary photos of each attendee posed against a Hollywood Hills backdrop. Donating a photo booth as well as providing attendants and bartenders, Circle That Date ensured the good times would just keep on going. And as the party wound down, every lady in attendance received a token of appreciation for their participation in this important effort. Parting gifts included a potted mum compliments of Cerillo Landscaping, as well as a gift bag with an MS T-shirt, gift certificates for Mary Kay products, Chick Fil-A restaurants and more. Girls Night Out to Fight MS was indeed a rousing success. So much so, that Noble’s Pond has already set the date for a return engagement next year. So save the date. Join the fight. Saturday, September 21, 2013. See you there?
