Area women will get a well-deserved break as they enjoy a day out with friends and family at the 17th annual Women's Show, Oct. 4 and 5, at Memorial Hall in the York Expo Center.
The Peak 98.5/MediaOnePA Women's Show, presented by Memorial Hospital, offers two days of shopping, exhibits, fashion shows, entertainment, seminars, demonstrations, sampling and much more, geared especially to the interests of women. A portion of the proceeds from the show, sponsored by Advanced Vein & Laser Center and Weis Markets, will benefit United Way of York County.
At this year’s show, attendees will have the opportunity to meet a local celebrity. WGAL News 8’s Barbara Barr will be the keynote speaker at 11 a.m. Saturday on the Wilmington Trust Stage. In addition, back by popular demand, 98.5 The Peak will be presenting “The Girlfriends Game,” sponsored by The Glass Slipper, where teams of best friends will show just how much they really know about each other in a fun-filled competition. The lucky winners will receive great prizes.
The Women's Show will showcase up-and-coming local and regional performing talent throughout the weekend on the Wilmington Trust Stage and bare® Skin Care Theatre. Attendees will also enjoy demonstrations and presentations on beauty techniques, exercise, cooking, finance, health and more.
"With more than 200 exhibitor booths, many informative seminars and a full schedule of entertainment, there is truly something for every style and taste at the Women’s Show," said Barbara Carbaugh, president of 98.5 The Peak. “It is a great opportunity for women to leave their hectic schedules behind and spend a day with their best friends or family members.”
More than 100 prizes, sponsored by Smith Village Home Furnishings, will be awarded. Three lucky winners will take home one of these grand prizes: a $2,500 Smith Village Home Furnishings room makeover, $1,000 in cosmetic services from Advanced Vein & Laser Center and Theia Light Center or a $500 Weis Markets gift card. No purchase is necessary to win. Also, the first 250 attendees each day will receive a free Women’s Show official tote bag, compliments of T.J. Maxx.
Admission is $4, but any attendee who presents a Weis Markets Preferred Shopper’s Club Card will receive free admission. The show hours are Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more details and a complete schedule of events visit www.thepeak985.com or call 717-792-0098.
