Girls' Night Out comes to Allegan General Hospital
The eighth annual Girls’ Night Out, hosted by Allegan General Hospital, will feature keynote speaker Dr. Sheri Prentiss, who is a physician, breast cancer survivor and the national spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day.
The hospital’s Spirit of Women program invites ladies in the area to join them for “Girls’ Night Out: Little Black Dress” Thursday, Oct. 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Silo, 1071 32nd St./M-40 South, Allegan.
“Dr. Prentiss will share her remarkable journey of pain, loss and change,” said Jennifer Dentler, AGH Spirit of Women coordinator. “She brings a unique perspective of being a breast cancer survivor, as well as being a physician. You listen to her story and you can’t help but be motivated to better health yourself.”
The evening will also include inspiring stories of women in the community as the 2014 Spirit of Women Award winners are announced. This is the fourth year for the AGH Spirit of Women Award, which highlights individuals who have done something selfless or extraordinary for their community.
In keeping with the “Little Black Dress” theme, attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite black attire to the event. Refreshments will be served and there will be a cash bar. The doors open at 6 p.m. Girls’ Night Out is free; however, pre-registration is required. Dentler expects this event will be very popular.
Individuals can register online at aghspirit.org or call AGH’s Community Events Line at (269) 686-4231.
