Shopping 10 am to 8:30 pm
Goodie bags go on sale Friday, April 24th!
Girls Night Out is an all day event enticing hundreds of women shoppers into downtown Olympia!
What makes this event different than any others? It is a fundraiser benefiting a local cause. Past causes have been YWCA – The Other Bank, the Downtown Graffiti Management Program, SafePlace, Thurston County Food Bank, Olympia Artspace Alliance, Olympia Union Gospel Mission and Behavioral Health Resources. Plus this annual event climaxes with a fun reception where amazing prizes donated by downtown businesses will be raffled off!
Here’s how it works. Women who want to come to Girls Night Out must purchase a ticket for a goodie bag (supplies limited). Pre-purchase your goodie bag between April 24 and May 14 for $12. On May 15 it will be $15. Pre-purchase locations are: Olympia Downtown Association (116 5th Ave SE, Suite F), Courtyard Antiques (705 4th Ave E), Lily’s What to Where Boutique (202 4th Ave W) and Vivala (111 Market St NE). You can also pre-purchase your goodie bag by calling (360) 357-8948.
Look for the pink balloons and event posters identifying the many participating businesses. You will be given one raffle ticket for every $10 you spend at the participating businesses. So the more you spend, the more chances you have of winning fabulous raffle prizes! Then at the end of the event come to the reception. The reception is at 8:30 pm at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, 512 Washington St SE. Doors open at 8 pm. At the reception you will enjoy small plates (for a minimal fee), a no-host bar and mingle with all the ladies. You do not need to be present to win in the raffle. FREE parking for goodie bag purchasers!
