From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday November 27th, the Invermere Home Hardware is hosting its second annual Ladies Night event.

Ladies Night is meant to be an evening for socializing with a bit of shopping involved although that really isnt the focus, said floor manager Mandi Cox, who is helping organize the event. Our guests can look forward to a night out with friends with some wine and food. Chef Jessie Simpkins will be preparing the food menu featuring delicious bite sized appetizers.

Last years inaugural event was a success with over 150 ladies attending despite poor weather conditions. This year, organizers are hoping to exceed last years number.

The evening will also feature draw prizes. The draw prizes consists of five goodie boxes (each with a value at least $75) done up with gifts from around the store and from participating vendors, said Ms. Cox. Tickets for the prizes are five dollars for five tickets and will be available throughout the evening. All ticket proceeds will go to the Columbia Valley Rockies.

Vendors attending include: Younique Mineral Makeup, Scentsy, Ceramic Jewellery, Buskins Leggings, Creative Woodworking, Gimmee Sugar Candy, and more.

There will also be two grand prizes up for grabs. However to be eligible for these, guests must first purchase a Christmas gift for child under the age of 12 with a value between $15 and $25. The gift will then be donated to and distributed by the Columbia Valley Christmas Bureau.

Ladies wishing to attend can pre-register by November 19th (entitling them to five complementary draw prize tickets), and the first 50 ladies in line will receive a complementary goodie bag.
