The annual Girls Night Out event took place on May 16th during the week of the Esprit Convention in downtown Port Angeles. Girls Night Out is an annual event organized by the Port Angeles Downtown Association‘s Promotion Committee and is a time for ladies to go to downtown Port Angeles to have fun and shop. This year there were 30 participating businesses, and Anime Kat was one of the 9 primary sponsors. Downtown Port Angeles turned tropical for the Island Style theme as businesses stayed open later than normal and had many in-store specials.
Most participating businesses, including Anime Kat, gave away beads for necklaces that were in goodie bags that were for sale. We kept the Anime Kat tradition of giving out kawaii (Japanese for cute) cat beads. This year we had black cat beads. The goodie bags featured products, samples, coupons, and more from downtown merchants. A portion of the proceeds from the bags benefited the Port Angeles Food Bank with the rest going to other downtown events produced by the Promotions Committee including the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Anime Kat was one of only a few stores that sold the goodie bags.
Everywhere you looked that night, you could see happy, smiling ladies enjoying a nice Port Angeles day. Every time we asked if there were enjoying Girls Night Out, ladies would say YES! Everyone with Anime Kat is looking forward to next’s year’s Girls Night Out event.
