Ladies' Night Out 2015: Success!
Fanwood’s fourth-annual Ladies’ Night Out, sponsored by the Fanwood Business and Professional Association (FBPA), drew a large crowd toting brightly colored bags to the downtown area Thursday, June 11. The event drew more than 200 shoppers to check out goods and services from more than 20 merchants. Participants checked in at the event headquarters in the new Fanwood Crossing II building on South Avenue and picked up a map and a goodie bag loaded with coupons and other items before setting out on their shopping excursions. Several stores featured big sales and a Tricky Tray drawing, featuring a wide variety of items from local merchants, also drew interest throughout during the evening. A champagne reception at the Fanwood Crossing II location, where Tricky Tray winners were announced, ended the evening. (Photos by Brian Horton)
