Back by popular demand, a free, healthy “night out with the girls” will be offered again this year for women of all ages April 30 from 6-9 p.m. at the Firemen’s Community Center in Hillsboro.

“Due to the great turn out last year, the event needed to be moved to a larger venue,” said Sue Zimmerman, Director of Public Relations and Marketing for Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics.

Displays will be on a number of women’s related topics including new skin and cosmetic consultation and treatments, varicose vein laser techniques, diabetic education and sleep issues. Interactive displays and demonstrations include massages, local organic samples from Whitaker's Farm Fresh Market, essential oils and soaps, belly dance instruction and wine tasting.

There will also be opportunities to create your own pearl necklace, and view other vendors' wares and creations.

This year, the featured presentations will focus on education and inspiration regarding women’s health issues such as new practices regarding cervical cancer screening and mammography presented by Gundersen Health System’s Mary Kuffel, MD, and bringing out your feminine strengths by Rhonda Siebecker, breast cancer survivor, belly dance instructor and freelance writer.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided plus a variety of door prizes and a complimentary gift are included in the event.

This free event is coordinated by the Gundersen St. Joseph’s Community Outreach Department and the Hillsboro Woman’s Civic Club.  Attendees are asked to bring a $2 donation which will be given to local food pantries in our communities.
