“What lady does not like wine and chocolates?” asked Labeth Hall, of PR Plus Events. “Our goal is to always have something exciting and new for the ladies to do.”

Hall said the day is filled with fun.

“Ladies of all ages can come and relax, enjoy the entertainment and shop til they drop,” she said. “They can also receive free makeovers, manicures and massages, too. It’s a great event to bring your mom, your sister or your best friends and have an amazing day.”
