Island Girls Night Out: Ladies sing, dance, live it up at Boondocks

in Uncategorized by

More than 100 women attended the monthly Island Girls Night Out event on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at Boondocks Restaurant on St. Helena Island. The crowd filled up the second floor bar area and everyone enjoyed drinks, food, music, even singing and dancing, in addition to the many fabulous door prizes. Special thanks to the owners and their dedicated staff for making sure everyone had fun and got home safely. Also a big thanks to all the businesses that donated their local goods and services, and to all the awesome local ladies who came out to connect and throw down.

These friends came as a group and had a lot of fun. From left: LouAnn Spada, Martha Ala, Rita Hunt and Tina Peterson.

OCTOBER GIRLS NIGHT OUT

It’s the marquee event of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the Lowcountry — and you’re invited to the party!

The Island News will be partnering with Beaufort Memorial Hospital as they host their traditional October Girls’ Night Out for the fifth year, with music, munchies and a whole new lineup of fun and educational activities offering “Your Ticket To…” breast health, OB-GYN health and an active lifestyle.

The party takes place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on THURSDAY, Oct. 16 (please note the day is different next month) on the second floor of the the Beaufort Memorial Medical & Administration Center — directly across the street from the main hospital campus on Ribaut Road in Beaufort.

Besides lots of great information on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, there will be plenty of hors d’oeuvres, beverages and prizes, too. The event is free, but registration is required. (This event has become so popular that it sold out last year – so make sure you reserve early). Visit www.beaufortmemorial.org and click on the “Girls’ Night Out” banner on the homepage to reserve your ticket to the fun.
