The 16th Dazzle Daze will kick off on Nov. 16 with Girls’ Nite Out and will feature prizes from Kendra Scott jewelry and Conway Women’s Med Spa, plus swag bags for the first 500 shoppers.
“We are very excited to welcome Kendra Scott,” said Amy Reed, a Dazzle Daze 2017 co-chair. “We also welcome back our good friends from Conway Women’s Med Spa, who have donated over $10,000 in prizes and gift certificates.”
Updates at the Conway Expo Center will allow the culinary fare for general shopping on Friday and Saturday to be expanded this year with food items from Taziki’s Mediterranean Grill, TGI Friday’s and Chick- Fil-A on the menu.
Friday and Saturday at Dazzle Daze will also include expanded Teddy Bear Clinics for the children. This is the second year for the Teddy Bear Clinic to be included in Dazzle Daze as an outreach effort for young children. Hours this year are Friday, Nov. 17, from 10 am to noon and 4 to 7 pm; Saturday, Nov. 18, 10 am to noon. Parents are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or another favorite stuffed animal along with their child to the event. Additional bears are available for a $5 donation.
While the shopping is fun, the underlying purpose of Dazzle Daze is compelling.
“Dazzle Daze is so much more than a fun event and shopping,” said Pam Sims, a Dazzle Daze co-chair. “Proceeds help make possible important equipment purchases, scholarships and other programs that improve the quality of care provided by Conway Regional Health System.” Throughout its 16-year history, Dazzle Daze has raised more than $650,000 in support of local health care at Conway Regional Health System.
