Girls' Night Out raised over $10,000 benefitting the Palatine Township Senior Center.

Ladies arrived at Durty Nellie's ready for fun and pampering at the 12th Annual Girls' Night Out fundraising event benefitting the Palatine Township Senior Center. Over 180 girlfriends, colleagues, mothers, and daughters enjoyed great food and drinks, including the Signature Drink, an Appletini. Much fun was had at the photo booth provided by iStar Photo Booth, great music was played by Loren Freeman with Event Mobile Sound, and the gals enjoyed delicious appetizers provided by Durty Nellie's. The free pampering stations were a huge hit! Chair Massages by Castle Chiropractic, Lip Pampering by Janie Askin, an independent SeneGence Distributor, and hair styling by Salon MMM…. Twenty three women were thrilled to win one of the fabulous raffle baskets, varying from salon services, to theater tickets, purses, restaurants, specialty items, events, and much more. Our "Cork Pull" was once again very popular as 54 bottles of wine were sold out in a matter of minutes. Some of the lucky winners even received a gift certificate or piece of jewelry on their bottle. The "Candy Bar" table was our newest addition to the evening, as guests could fill a box with theme colored candy beautifully displayed in glassware. The ladies received wonderful little gifts at the Party Favor Bar, provided by our Platinum Sponsors, upon departure. "The event was an evening full of fun amongst friends, family and colleagues as they enjoyed music, food, drinks, photos and pampering stations, all while supporting the Senior Center and its very important programs," said Carol Reagan, Executive Director at PTSCC.
