Manitoulin ladies’ night to raise funds for Canadian Cancer Society
LITTLE CURRENT—Specialty martinis, shopping, live entertainment and a whole lot of fun is coming up on Saturday, October 17 at the ladies only Black Tie Pajama Party at the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre.
The event, which is also a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, will include cocktails, a vendor market, dinner, Zumba, hula hooping, burlesque dancing, psychics, live entertainment, a silent auction and boudoir photo sessions.
“We are really excited about the night,” shared Kelly Timmermans, who is organizing the event along with Pam Stephens. “The evening will kick off at 5:30 pm with greetings from representatives of the Canadian Cancer Society, followed by a special video message from the 2016 CountryFest headliner. The headliner will also be donating a special silent action item which will be available that night.”
“For specialty drinks we will be serving up candy corn martinis, chocolate mint martinis and jello shooters,” continued Ms. Timmermans. “After dinner, we have a number of interactive activities such as Zumba, hula hoops, burlesque dancing and mini manicures from Jamberry (all included in the $40 ticket price along with dinner). Additionally, ladies can also sign up for sessions with psychics and/or boudoir photo sessions (with makeup and hair touchups available). We have a number of vendors too for everyone to browse and do a bit of shopping. With the additional activities, the individuals (vendors, psychics etc.) will be donating a portion of their sales back to the Canadian Cancer Society.”
Northern Ontario’s own, the very talented Mike Trudell will be providing live entertainment and there will also be a number of silent auction items for ladies to bid on throughout the night, plus raffle items.
The evening is sure to be a lot of fun and there are even a few surprises in store such as naughty entertainment and a candy table.
“The hotel is offering a reduced rate of $119 per room, with $20 being donated to the Cancer Society,” added Ms. Timmermans. “We are hoping to take over the hotel. The idea for the Black Tie Pajama theme incorporates the idea of an old school sleepover, but is still special and allows the ladies to dress up.”
There will be special prizes for the best-dressed group, best dressed individual, most comedic group, most comedic individual, most originally dressed group and most originally dressed individual.
Ms. Timmermans shared that she got the idea from the West Nippissing General Hospital after attending their ladies night fundraiser last year. She said the organizers of the event have been supportive and will even be attending the Manitoulin edition.
Tickets are $40 each and are available at the TD Bank in Little Current, Dreamers Cove, 100.7 The Island, the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre and Rustie’s Café in the Espanola Mall.
