“Girly photo shoots,” “big girl panty decorating,” and “shooting hoops for boas,” don’t sound like typical activities one would find in downtown Camas on a Thursday night. But this week it’s all part of the fun during the second annual Girls Night Out event.
Participants pay $15 each, with proceeds going to cancer charities including the Pink Lemonade Project and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Last year’s GNO attracted hundreds to downtown Camas, and organizers are expecting a similar turnout this year.
There will be talks from breast cancer survivors including Terry Prill and Krista Colvin, whose own battle inspired the initial creation of the event. There will also be a chance to honor those who have died of cancer or who are currently battling the disease.
Participants can also help create an original art piece with local artist and downtown Camas business owner Elida Field, take part in free beauty treatments and massages, listen to music and shop in downtown businesses.
