Norwalk Reflector Staff • Oct 29, 2015 at 12:19 PM

The Girls' Night Out committee recently announced a change in the entertainment schedule for the upcoming third annual Girls' Night Out (GNO), a charity event to benefit local cancer programs.

"We are sad to announce that Darryl & Allie had to cancel their performance at our event," said Douglas Studer, co-owner of Curves in Norwalk, Sandusky and Huron and co-founder of this event with his wife, Gretchen. "Yet, we want to assure women attending that we will still provide them high quality entertainment."

The Vegas Style singing of Frank and Dean will replace Darryl and Allie's musical slot. Singers Scott Brotherton and Damion Fontaine sing all the great songs from the Rat Pack era, but that's not all, they also pay tribute to the music of Elvis, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Neil Diamond, The Blues Brothers and much more.

The evening's musical entertainment also includes Detroit-based group the Thrill and Thrillettes, who will delight women with lots of MoTown music. In addition, humorist Karen S. Vadino will teach women what to do when they're "All Stressed Up and No One To Choke." Vadino, a motivational speaker, humorist, trainer and consultant, is a nationally recognized speaker known for her unique and humorous approach to life. Vadino has been in the human services field for more than 20 years and has been a trainer and educator for more than 15 years.

This year's event is scheduled for Oct. 24 at the Nia Center at Kalahari Resort, 7000 Kalahari Drive, Sandusky. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. Ladies will be able to visit vendors and enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres before the program begins at 6:30 p.m. The evening will conclude about 10 p.m. Tickets are $30.

"You won't want to miss all of the fun including a special Girls' Night Out version of 'Deal or No Deal' with Jeff McCready of Huron hosting the game show," Studer said. "And don't forget to purchase a ticket before Monday, Oct. 1 to be entered in a special door prize drawing to win a weekend stay for six at Kalahari Waterpark Resort that includes a suite for six, six waterpark passes and breakfast and dinner for six."

All proceeds will benefit Cancer Services, a local group that serves Erie County and the Norwalk area, the FTMC Mammography Fund and Firelands Regional Medical Center Cancer Program Fund.
