DOVER, DE – Join women from across the state for the fourth annual Girls Night Out to Fight MS event at The Point at Noble’s Pond located at 13 Noble’s Pond Crossing, Dover, DE 19904. The New Orleans inspired event will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6:30-9:30pm.
Girls Night Out, organized by Colleen Ostafy, Lifestyle Director at Noble’s Pond, will be fun-filled with complimentary heavy hors d’oeuvres and a signature cocktail, an extensive silent auction featuring premier items and services from Delaware businesses, two fabulous fashion shows sponsored by Dressbarn and Knight’s Fine Jewelry. Guests will be greeted to the cool jazz sounds of the Joe Baione duo and the evening’s celebration will kick off with a dance performance to “All That Jazz.” Shopping opportunities abound with many unique boutiques and Ghostar Sound Entertainment will spin the tunes for a fun-filled girls dance party. Sponsors of this event are Noble’s Pond, Dover Post, Abbots Grill, Maple Dale Country Club, Pizza Delight by Giacomo, Captains Catch, Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House, Frederica Pizza and Pasta House, An Affair to Remember Catering and Cajun Queens. Fashions from Dressbarn and jewelry from Knight’s Fine Jewelry will be modeled in the two fashion shows.
After the last three years attendance of over 500 people, this is an event you don’t want to miss! “What a fantastic time we had the last three years, raising money and having a blast with all our girlfriends. This year will be over the top, with new table boutiques, a Martini Bar, a wine bar from Boisset Family Estates, tons of fantastic items for auction, dancing and an overwhelming variety of food and drinks,” said Colleen Ostafy, hostess of Girls Night Out.
Girls Night Out carries a lot of significance in the MS Community. Noble’s Pond was named Corporation of the Year in 2013 by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Delaware Chapter. “We were so proud to be honored with this recognition and plan to continue the fight for a cure until the day that one is found,” stated Colleen Ostafy. Nationally, twice as many women as men are diagnosed with the disease; locally, 73% of those diagnosed with MS are women. “This is a great opportunity for women to fight against multiple sclerosis. Funds raised tonight will support national research projects that look into the cause of MS, the development of more effective treatments and one day soon a cure,” stated Meg Dipanni, Vice President, Development of the National MS Society, Greater Delaware Valley Chapter.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with the disease. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and over 2.1 million worldwide.
About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS. In 2012 alone, through our national office and 50-state network of chapters, we devoted $164 million to programs and services that improved the lives of more than one million people. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $40 million to support more than 325 new and ongoing research projects around the world.
