Girl’s Night Out to be Held on Oct. 8
Over the last 14 years, “Girl’s Night Out,” has raised over half a million dollars to battle breast cancer in Delaware County. Proceeds from this annual event have benefited Crozer-Keystone Cancer Services.

Organized under the meticulous eye of Mena Dabbundo, “Girls Night Out,” is planned by a small army of loyal and dedicated volunteers. The evening features a spectacular fashion show spotlighting the clothes of a local boutique. Women bid on both live and silent auction items donated by local businesses and individuals.
