18 Nov Annual Dazzle Daze has new look, features
This year’s Dazzle Daze – which has a new look and new features – will kick off on Thursday’s with Girls’ Nite Out.
501 LIFE is a Dazzle Daze Presenting Sponsor, and the sponsor for Girls’ Nite Out.
The Conway Regional Women’s Council will present the 18th Annual Dazzle Daze on Thursday, Nov. 21, through Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds. Since its inception, Dazzle Daze has raised more than $760,000, which has been used to purchase equipment at Conway Regional Medical Center, fund scholarships, patient and community programs and provide teacher grants.
Dazzle Daze co-chairs Shelia Isby and MissE Newton are leading efforts to plan the event and help raise funds to help purchase the latest in 3D mammography equipment, improving screening and diagnostic results for women from all walks of life.
“We are creating a holiday market atmosphere,” said MissE, adding that the event’s layout and décor will reflect the new theme. “We have also included an Ultimate Girls Night Out ticket and have made changes to our grand raffle with 10 chances to win fabulous prizes. I am very excited about the changes to Dazzle Daze this year.”
“Dazzle Daze is important to me because it’s an event that supports women’s health and health in our community through Conway Regional Health System,” said Shelia. “It provides a network for women to meet, volunteer, shop and form everlasting friendships all while supporting a great cause.”
