November 25, 2009 - Clarkston Elementary School's Ladies Night Out had all the details needed for a fun night - shopping, delicious food and pampering.

The event was hosted by the school's PTO. Vice-President Jen Herrmann and Secretary Jennifer Detkowski called the first annual event a success.

They thought of the idea while brainstorming on what to do to raise money for the school.

"It was the first idea to come to mind," said Detkowski. "The idea was to keep it in community and support local businesses while raising money."

Vendors were eager to participate and they expanded the space they were using to the hallways to accommodate everyone, she said.

The night gave women, and a few men, a chance to start their holiday shopping as they looked through clothes, home goods and services – not to mention pampering themselves with massages, pedicures and manicures, and enjoying food from the Union Woodshop and Lisa's Confection Connection.

"It was a great turnout," said Herrman. "Everyone liked the variety and it helps our friends and neighbors."
