Get your bunny slippers ready. The third annual Girls Night Out Pajama Party is taking over downtown Hibbing once again this week in an effort to raise funds to help people with cancer.
What is it: The Pajama Party is a night of shopping and fun for women. Downtown businesses open and offer Pajama Party specials for the night with area vendors and independent merchants setting up booths from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at participating locations throughout downtown. The evening ends with a Pajama After Party from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Elks.
Prizes: Awarded for best pajamas, funniest pajamas and best group pajama theme. Women who fill out their PJ Passport also will be entered for a special prize.
Attendance: About 150 each year.
Money raised: About $4,550 annually.
Who’s it help: The funds go toward the Angel Fund, which supplies people going through treatment for cancer with items that aren’t covered by insurance such as gas cards, dressing supplies, wigs and more.
What’s the goal: This year organizers would like to see 200 ladies downtown for the event.
How to participate: Pre-registration is at the Hibbing Area Chamber of Commerce building on Howard Street. The first 200 people who register receive a shopping bag with prizes, a breast cancer awareness bracelet and a chance to win large prizes. Participants may check in between 3 and 6 p.m. Thursday at Zimmy’s to pick up their bags. The cost is $25.
