After months of committed planning, formal meetings and informal meet-ups, STARS, the Fort Bend County Women’s Center’s fundraising and special events support arm, presented the Women’s Center with a check for $127,650 at their general meeting on May 2, 2013. This amount represents the proceeds from this year’s annual Girlfriends Giggle.
This level of funding was made possible through title sponsors, Sweetwater OB/Gyn Associates, Houston Fertility Institute and Dr. Jay Shenaq, M.D., F.A.C.S., plus numerous valuable sponsors, vendors, volunteers and, of course, all those Girlfriend Giggle attendees!
Girlfriends Giggle is the ultimate “Girls’ Night Out” for hundreds of ladies each year. Billed as a “Grown Up Girl” Pajama Party celebrating female friendships, the evening includes a live DJ, lots of dancing, the ever popular (sometimes competitive!) pajama contest, top local restaurant fare, a martini bar, live and silent auctions, boutique shopping, dance lessons and personal indulgences such as manicures, massages, and hair styling.
With the presented proceeds from Girlfriend Giggles, the Women’s Center will continue providing free and confidential emergency shelter, counseling, crisis intervention, along with additional supportive programs and services.
