This Saturday, April 10th at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre the Cape Breton Transition House Foundation will host Girls’ Night Out 2010 – Black and White Oh What a Night which promises to be a fun filled night consisting of a trade fair, silent auction, musical entertainment and more. Sorry fellas, this is a ladies only event.
The mandate of the Foundation is to raise money to support projects and programs of Cape Breton Transition House (a safe haven for abused women and their children), to acquire money or furnishings and goods for the shelter, and to conduct public education projects. Girl’s Night Out has been the Foundation’s premiere fundraiser for the past nine years. Although Cape Breton Transition House is funded through the province’s Department of Community Services for staffing, major repairs, and major household expenses etc., Transition House relies on the Foundation for many necessary extras.
The exciting entertainment portion of the event will be Emcee’d by Bette MacDonald and Laurel Munroe and will include performances by Newbury Jam; Joanne Rolls and Shelley Allen; Dawn and Margie Beaton; Pink Thunder; Rosa and Flo Sampson.
Female led businesses and organizations who will be showcasing their products and services will include African Trust Fund, Alouette, Avon, Barra Strait Pottery, Cape Breton Fudge Company, Curly Girl Design, Dragonflys and Dreams, Glass Slipper Fusion Glass, Hair by Nicole, Handmade Gourmet Products, Hands in Clay Pottery Studio, Interior Matters Home Decorating, Kookla Esthetics, Linda Well Jewellery, Mary Kay Products, Oak Hall, Passion Parties, Shannon Reid Esthetics, Sweet Biscuit, The Cocoa Pod, Run for Awareness Association, Two Crows Farm and Recreation and the YMCA.
The “Oasis Room” will have on offer (by appointment) the following services: Energy Matters by Carolyn Dunn, palm reading by Gwen MacLennan, tarot card reading by Madonna Doucette, and Reiki from Margie Turnbull and friends.
Tickets are $30 (plus $1.50 service charge) and can be purchased in person at Membertou Trade and Convention Centre, in person at Oak Hall on Charlotte Street or from the Transition House Foundation by phoning Maggie at 562-4190.
