Mayor and county judge support 2018 Dazzle Daze

Conway Mayor Bart Castleberry and Faulkner County Judge Jim Baker have issued proclamations asking residents to “Paint the Town Red” the week of October 21-27. On Friday, Oct. 26, local businesses and schools are encouraged to observe “Wear Red Day.”

“Paint the Town Red” is designed to build enthusiasm for one of the state’s largest holiday shopping events, Dazzle Dazesm. Several area banks, restaurants and other businesses will promote the event by posting promotional materials at their locations, wearing red and encouraging the community to participate. Dazzle Daze benefits Conway Regional Health System.

“We wanted to begin promoting Dazzle Daze in a new and fun way this year,” said Amy Reed, a Dazzle Daze co-chair. “We have a number of banks, restaurants and other businesses that have already indicated they plan to participate in ‘Paint the Town Red’ and there is always room for more.”

Dazzle Daze is sponsored by the Conway Regional Women’s Council and billed as Conway’s holiday shopping extravaganza. This year it will be held Thursday, Nov. 15, through Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds.

The 17th annual Dazzle Daze will include a high-value prize raffle, Girls’ Nite Out early bird shopping, a Teddy Bear Clinic, reindeer games, appearances and photos with Santa, food and shopping with more than 80 merchants from throughout the country. 

“Dazzle Daze is so much more than a fun event and shopping,” said Dazzle Daze co-chair Shelia Isby. “Proceeds have helped make possible important equipment purchases, scholarships and other programs that improve the quality of care provided by Conway Regional Health System.”

Members of the Conway Regional Women’s Council and Dazzle Daze Committee kicked off plans for their inaugural Paint the Town Red promotion with a proclamation signing with Conway Mayor Bart Castleberry (pictured) and Faulkner County Judge Jim Baker.

This year, proceeds will help purchase additional 3D mammography equipment at Conway Regional, the only provider of 3D mammography in Conway. Throughout its 17-year history, Dazzle Daze has raised more than $700,000 in support of local health care through the Conway Regional Health System.The Paint the Town Red week will also kick off the Dazzle Daze ornament fundraiser. Local banks will be selling a special paper ornament for $1 each to display at the bank. The ornaments, which can be purchased in honor or memory of someone, will be sold through Tuesday, Nov. 13. All proceeds will be donated to the women’s council. 

The bank that raises the most money will be featured in 501 LIFE, which is sponsoring the promotion.

“We want to thank all the businesses that have already signed up and encourage others to join us for this fun week,” said Amy.
