Despite the chilly temps last Wednesday, Jan. 8, close to 40 women attended the first Island Girls Night Out at Bella Luna Cafe on St. Helena Island.
The event, sponsored by The Island News, was an opportunity for local women to meet, network and have fun. A big thanks to Irene Goodnight for organizing and being the MC at the event. And also much thanks to Bella Luna for opening up their restaurant and providing appetizers and a friendly atmosphere for all the guests.
Irene gave out more than 15 door prizes. Here are some of the women and the items they won: Julie Cowles, Reiki session; Diane Valkenburg, evening bag; Cynthia Stewart, Lands End Tour; Martha Cooper-Hudson, item from The Clothes Line; Karen Burke, Avon products; Arlene Peck, Mary Kay products; Barbara Handbury, Organika Salon; Susan Dickson, Reiki session; Nancy Navarro,

The second Island Girls Night Out will be held next month.
