Township to host ‘Ladies Night Out’ event

MACOMB TOWNSHIP — The township Parks and Recreation Department will host its first annual “Ladies Night Out” fundraiser April 11, providing the township’s women a night of socializing and shopping local vendors.
The proceeds for the event, which runs from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., will go to the general fund for free community events, said Michelle Duda from the Parks and Recreation Department.
Although the event takes place at the Marvin Blank Senior Center, at 19925 23 Mile Road, Duda said the event is not just for seniors.
“We want people to know it is not just a senior event, even though it is at the senior center,” she said. “We decided to have it at the senior center so it would be more private, and we could create a more elegant atmosphere than we could pull off at the recreation center.”
She said the event is relevant for females 18 and older.
While Macomb offers several events oriented toward families, mothers are usually too busy keeping track of or chasing down their children to enjoy the entertainment. The ladies night out, Duda said, will provide them reprieve.
“We do a lot of family events where the moms are busy being moms, so it will be a nice break for them,” she said.
Simultaneously, the event will highlight local businesses.
“Vendors will be showcasing their specialties,” she said.
Duda said attendants will have a chance to enjoy free spa services, shop for jewelry and food, and enjoy fitness demos.
Local vendor Sherry Brodowsky will have her repurposed home décor items on display. While she’s been in the interior design business for a couple decades, she has been turning discarded candleholders, wine bottles and other items into decorations for the last four years.
“I’m very big into buying old things and making them new again,” Brodowsky said. “I go to a lot of thrift stores, buy what people want to discard, and I make them into something new.”
She will be selling decorative frames, vintage jewelry and other items at the event.
Registration for the event will cost $5 for guests and $15 for vendors. People with questions can call Duda at (586) 992-2900, ext. 2908.
