Girls-night-out takes on a whole new meaning when local women gather once a month for dinner and drinks, proceeds go to local non-profits.
Arianne Davenport, Owner of Soiree Event Productions began the event months ago, in an effort to help out local non-profit groups.
She gathers women every 2ND Tuesday of the month at different Charlottesville hot spots for dinner, drinks, and to raise money and awareness about groups in need.
"Everyone has a monthly girls night out so you might as well do it for a good cause " said Davenport," it brings people together that would never have been out together".
Service Dogs of Virginia benefited from April's 'Tiara Tuesdays', earning about $200 from the event.
Each Service dog trained by local volunteers requires two years of food,care, and careful training, costing around $18 thousand dollars each.
Peggy Law, Director of Service Dogs of Virginia said just like any other non-profit, any help fundraising makes a big impact.
"It's really uplifting and it's very validating and gratifying that there's people who care about what we do" said Law.
