“A Good Girls Night Out” will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at A Pampering Knead, 261 Bloomfield Ave. Verona.
“Join us for a intimate evening of mini-massages, Moroccan henna, sangria, hors d'oeuvres, raffles and shopping,” the businesses said in an advertisement.
The night will also feature local artists and designers who will be selling handmade gifts.
“All items are handmade because we are trying to bring back handmade gifts and support local business,” said Nicole Silva of Bloomfield.
Silva and her sister, Amy Rivera, started DollyMoo three years ago making handmade, natural and organic body products. The business originally started in Montclair but moved to West Orange when Silva began running DollyMoo full time.
Silva and A Pampering Knead owner Vissia Santoro decided to hold the food drive after reading an article about the Human Needs Pantry and how it has been neglected since Hurricane Sandy.
“Its important to give all year round but the holidays and time to give back, reflect and share,” said Silva.“This is a fun, local event to get meaningful handmade gifts that really come from someone's heart.
A Pampering Knead and DollyMoo are asking customers to bring one can of soup, pasta or macaroni and cheese with them to donate to The Human Needs Pantry.
