The next Girls Night Out will be held Thursday, Jan. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Players Club in Wellington.
This popular monthly event has become a good excuse for many to get together to enjoy a “night with the girls,” and to simultaneously raise money for a worthy, local charity. This month, the Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation has been chosen to be the charity that benefits from the event’s raffle proceeds.
Each month, the Players Club top floor abounds with assorted vendors displaying their high-quality, juried merchandise on tables.
“We are starting off the New Year with a nice group of vendors in the tradition of something old and something new,” said Maureen Gross of the Phelps Media Group. “We have returning vendors who love to do this show with us every month, but we have a nice mix of new vendors coming with different merchandise, too.”
Adding to the party atmosphere, two bars in the room will offer food and drink specials for everyone to enjoy while they meander through the vendors, and continue to talk and laugh with their friends. The sounds of music by the DJ GFY add to the ambiance.
The monthly Girls Night Out events are designed to be not just a fun night with friends; they are also designed to benefit the community. Each month a different, local nonprofit is selected to benefit from the proceeds of the evening’s raffle ticket sales. Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation, January’s chosen charity, has a long record of community service.
“Hospice has had an impact on the lives of so many people and families in our community; we knew that we wanted to dedicate one of our girls night out events to them,” said Dolores Schlick, catering manager at the Players Club. “Being after the holidays, January seemed like the perfect month. People should be ready to see their friends for a relaxed night out, and the equestrians should be here in town for season. It will hopefully add up to a good night for everyone!”
The Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Spectrum Health Inc. and its subsidiaries. The foundation is dedicated to raising funds to support the unfunded patient programs and services offered by Hospice of Palm Beach County that are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. “I don’t think there is anyone who hasn’t been touched by the compassionate services that Hospice offers countless individuals and families in our community during their time of great need,” Gross said. “We are very happy to offer our support to such a wonderful organization this month.”
