Cards can be obtained from any of the nine businesses and the card must be punched at every location on Ladies Night Out for a chance to win a prize worth over $200. “It’s a great way to get started or to get ideas for the holiday shopping season, whether you’re shopping for yourself or just wanting to enjoy a night out on the town with the girls,” Michelle continued. The cards need to be filled out and dropped off at any of the participating locations.
