Next Girls Night Out Event Aug. 9 At Players Club

Following a successful event on July 12, the next Girls Night Out will be held Thursday, Aug. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Players Club in Wellington.

For the August event, the Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County has been selected as the evening’s charity beneficiary.

“We had groups of women arriving at our front door from 6 o’clock on, to enjoy a fun night out with their friends,” said Dolores Schlick, director of catering at the Players Club. “And most of them didn’t go home until it was over!”

The July Girls Night Out evening had plenty of tempting options for the ladies — shopping with more than 20 vendors on site, delicious drink and food specials to indulge in, plenty of raffle prizes to win and DJ GFY playing music all night long.

Not only were the women enjoying a fun night out, but they were raising some money for a good cause, the Kids Cancer Foundation.

As part of the event, each vendor was asked to donate a prize to be used as a raffle prize, and the money raised at the July event from the sale of the raffle tickets was donated to the Kids Cancer Foundation. Michelle O’Boyle, founder and executive director of the Kids Cancer Foundation, was on hand distributing information about the work they do.

Each month, there will be a different local charity chosen to benefit from the raffle proceeds.

“We are proud to offer this support to local charities, such as the Kids Cancer Foundation, that are making a difference in our community every day,” said Maureen Gross, director of development and community outreach at Phelps Media Group. “It is organizations like this that make the western communities such a wonderful place to live, and every month there are many women who come out to specifically support that month’s charity.”

Girls Night Out is held from 6 to 9 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month at the Players Club. For information about attending, contact Schlick at or (561) 795-0080. For vendor information, contact Gross at or (561) 714-0887.
