Lyndon Community and Business Women: Ladies’ Night Out packs school gym

By Heather Fuller

On Saturday, Oct. 15, the Lyndon High School gymnasium was packed with about 170 ladies from the area who came together not only for a fun evening of food and entertainment but also for a worthy cause. The mission of Lyndon Community and Business Women is to encourage, educate and empower young women in the community, and Ladies’ Night Out is the biggest fundraiser of the year that helps accomplish this purpose. Funds gathered from the silent auction, ticket sales and donations will help fund scholarships that are given out to Lyndon senior girls.

The theme for the evening was “A Night at the Movies,” and each of the tables was decorated by CBW members around a movie theme. From “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Under the Tuscan Sun” to “Up”, the tables themselves were entertaining; yet also present was entertainer Michael B, from Manhattan, who sang throughout the evening as the women played music bingo. Emcees for the evening were a couple of washed-out actresses, Mandy Eliss Grayson (portrayed by Angie Dalrymple) and Taudrey Pepburn (portrayed by Heather Fuller), and many attendees also contributed to the fun.

Guests were invited to participate in creating a MadLib award acceptance speech and winners from each table came to accept their “Wemmy” and read their speech. Lots of laughs, fun, and funds were raised to the roof of the gym as the night went on.

Lyndon CBW is grateful for the silent auction donors from the area, who contributed items that raised a total of $2,025. Also, special thanks to all of the ladies who attended and continue to support CBW’s cause. The CBW is holding a member drive from now until Nov. 12. Any lady interested in joining the group can get more information at Citizens State Bank or Lyndon State Bank, both in Lyndon.
