Proceeds of Montauk fundraiser benefit women’s cancer coalition

Gurney’s Hosts Girls Night Out

The annual Girls Night Out fundraiser returns to Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa on Friday, November 16. Attendees will don their various hues of pink to promote women supporting women. All proceeds will benefit The Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Southampton Hospital, which helps women affected by breast and gynecological cancers.

“Special thanks to Gurney’s and their staff for making Girls Night Out possible. With their help, we are able to lend a helping hand to so many women fighting breast and/or gynecological cancers in our local East End neighborhoods. We are truly blessed to live in a community where so many businesses, practitioners, volunteers, and community members generously support us,” said Susie Barry Roden, president of The Coalition for Women’s Cancers.

The volunteer-driven organization provides support for East Enders diagnosed with cancer and their families. CWC empowers women to seek out early detection and aids in an overall improved quality of life for patients. Its programs include recovery services Lend a Helping Hand, Peer to Peer counseling matching survivors to new patients, nutritional programs, support groups through Ellen’s Well, and wellness groups such as yoga and acupuncture circles, in addition to other free services.

Guests will enjoy wine and cocktails as they take their chances on raffles. They will delight in passed hors d’oeuvres while relaxing to select spa treatments and psychic readings. Attendees can also dance the night away worry free with Hampton Jitney transportation included in each ticket. There are four stops between Hampton Bays to Gurney’s. For those looking to stay the night, there will be special room rates and the added bonus of 20 percent spa discounts the following day.

The event begins at 7 PM. Entry level tickets begin at $45. Support level, at $75, includes a choice of one treatment, and an Empowerment level ticket, at $150, includes a treatment, psychic reading, five raffle tickets, and a gift bag.
