A group of Batavia merchants invite you to a special “Ladies Weekend Out” passport event prior to Mother’s Day. Show your passport to participating merchants to receive special discounts and promotions. Besides offering fun shopping, raffles and discounts, the businesses are donating a portion of their proceeds from the 3-day event to Batavia United Way.

Ladies Weekend Out kicks off on Thursday, May 10 between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. at Special Occasions on The Avenue, 2 N. Batavia Avenue, and at For All Occasions, 235 W. Wilson Street. You will be able to shop, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and wine while picking up your weekend passport.

Bee-Attitudes Antiques, 9 S. Batavia Avenue; Batavia Florist & Gift Shoppe, 109 S. Batavia Avenue; Sue’s Family Hair Company; 139 S. Batavia Avenue; Terri’s Resale Treasures, 241 W. Wilson Street; Thai Village Restaurant, 4 N. Batavia Avenue; and Gammon Coach House Restaurant, 3 S. Batavia Avenue are also participating in Ladies Weekend Out.

While you spend the next few days dining and shopping, get your passport punched or stamped. Collect at least five punches on your passport and you can enter it into a raffle. Drop off your qualifying passport at Gammon Coach House by 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 12 and enjoy a specially priced Momma’s Mimosa while you are there.

All participating businesses donated raffle items, which include a basket of goodies from Special Occasions Dress Shop and a $50 gift card to All Occasions.
