“Glitz & Garland is the place to be for your holiday shopping,” said Matt Brumley, director of Saline Health Foundation. “With a variety of vendors, there are sure to be items you can find for everyone on your list.”

A limited number of tickets are now available to A Girls Night Out Thursday, Nov. 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. Sponsored by Dillard’s, the event features giveaways, hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The ticket price also includes admission to Glitz & Garland Nov. 3 and 4.

Only 500 tickets will be sold. Tickets are available at the Benton Area Chamber of Commerce or Saline Memorial Hospital.

“We are glad to be a part of Glitz & Garland for the seventh year to support the Saline Health Foundation and the Benton Area Chamber of Commerce,” said Susie Everett of Everett Buick GMC.  “When you buy a ticket, even if you don’t win the Encore, you are still a winner by supporting your community.”
