Ladies, mark your calendars for a Girls' Night Downtown, a fun new event in downtown Lawrence!

Girls Night Downtown logoDowntown Lawrence, Inc., and the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association are teaming up to bring a shopping extravaganza to our downtown shopping district. Along with special discounts at participating stores, the proceeds will all benefit Mario's Closet, a specialty shop at LMH that offers wigs and other accessories for cancer patients that was founded by the Mario V. Chalmers Foundation.

Here's what you need to know:

  • When: Thursday, Oct. 13
  • Time: 5-9 p.m.
  • Cost: $20, or $10 with a college I.D. (All ticket proceeds go directly to Mario's Closet)

Tickets can be purchased online in advance here. You can also purchase tickets at the DLI office, 833 1/2  Massachusetts, or on the night of the event next to the Eldridge or in front of U.S. Bank.

So, what do you get for the ticket price?

A pink shopping passport that gives you access to great discounts at participating merchants (see a list of participants here) and a pink shopping bag from Douglas County Bank filled with more coupons.

At every store you shop, be sure to get your passport stamped, and after you've shopped 'til you're about to drop, you can stop by after-parties at several venues, including the Sandbar. Drop your completed passport into the drawing box at the after-party, and you'll be entered to win the grand prize: a pink wallet full of gift certificates to downtown businesses!

This is a fabulous opportunity to shop downtown, enjoy great discounts, get some early holiday shopping done AND help raise money for a great cause.

We'll be participating in the party afterwards with a shot special, and everyone who visits and shows their pink passport to the bartender will get a free Sandbar pint glass. It just so happens that Thursday nights are tropical drink nights, too, so you can enjoy $2.50 tropical drinks in your new glass!
