Darien Sport Shop will host a Girls Night Out fundraising event for the YWCA Darien/Norwalk on Thursday, Oct. 18, at its store, 1127 Post Road, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

YW members will be invited to shop and receive a 10 percent discount on their purchases with another 10 percent of the proceeds going toward the YWCA Darien/Norwalk and its community outreach programs. There will be wine and hors d'ouevres served in the store for the YW members who are shopping.

The YWCA Darien/Norwalk has programs for women and girls in the community in addition to activities for women, including the Newcomers Club. One of these programs is Parent Awareness, which encourages the positive development of Darien youth by providing education to families. A second program is Job Search Support, which provides women with the skills and tools required to become employed and support their families.

In addition, the YW is launching Girl2Girl, a program designed to create resilience and empower girls entering sixth and ninth grade and Mentoring for Girls, an adult female to Darien high school girl mentoring program.
