The year Angelique and I started our business we sadly lost a friend and her family to a domestic violence tragedy. When we opened our brick and mortar shop a year later, we wanted to give back to a local organization that not only helped our community be a better place to live, but one that specifically supported women and children. Through our friendship and partnership with the CEO of the Heartly House at the time, Girls Night Out Frederick was born.
We have hosted 2 Girls Night Out Frederick events every year since and this year the money we have raised surpassed the $23,000 mark. Sometimes we wonder if our event attendees even realize the importance of joining us for an evening out with friends as the atmosphere is a festive one filled with laughter and friendship. We strive to not only raise money to support the Heartly House but to also educate our attendees on the services the Heartly House has to offer to women and children in our community faced with domestic violence. Thank you to our friends and neighbors who have sponsored, attended, hosted and donated to our event over the past 5 years. We truly treasure your partnership.
We are always challenged with keeping this event fun, fresh, and relevant to our community and we hope to have exciting new things in store as we begin our 6th year of Girls Night Out events. We hope you check in with us to find out what we have planned for Spring 2016 GNO….
