The 8th Annual Ladies Night Out will be held on Thursday, June 6, from 6 – 9 p.m. in downtown Fanwood! The event will offer participants an opportunity to enjoy music, mingling, and shopping to support our local merchants! Last year, hundreds of women lined up to register and pick up a goody bag filled with coupons for local businesses and tickets to win prizes at a tricky tray raffle.
The annual event is sponsored by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce which represents Fanwood businesses and will feature many of the Borough’s downtown businesses. The event’s goal of increasing walk-in traffic in the Borough’s downtown has helped contribute to significant growth over the past several years.
We hope you will join us this year. For more information please visit gwaccnj.com
