These ladies celebrate their winnings from an Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program auction. This year’s “Date Night Out” features pasta dinner, dancing to live music by the San Juan Mountain Boys, a silent auction and live auction on Thursday, May 22.

Don your best cowboy boots or festive garb for an especially good time at “Date Night Out” at Nello’s Bistro.

A pasta dinner, dancing to live music by the San Juan Mountain Boys, a silent auction and live auction will all be held Thursday, May 22, starting at 5:30 p.m. And, it all benefits the Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes healthy relationships and healthy families.

Yes, the infamous “Ladies Night Out” you’ve all loved in past years has transformed this year into “Date Night Out.” Bring your favorite guy (or girlfriend), put on your dancing shoes (or boots) and shake it up.

This year, our auction items are expanded to include guy “must haves,” as well as traditional “girlie” favorites. It’s not just jewelry and glam anymore. You can also bid on a trip to Vegas, western decor and even a barbecue grill.

Tickets are selling fast. Get yours today at the Chamber of Commerce, Nello’s Bistro or online at eventbrite.com/e/date-night-out-tickets-7836353745. For $20 (individual) or $35 (couple), you will be benefiting over 400 of our community members in need who we serve during one year.

You don’t want to miss this year’s event. Call ACVAP at 264-9075 for more information. See y’all on the dance floor.
