Sussex County Community College's Ladies’ Saturday Retreat will take place Saturday, April 8.
NEWTON — Ladies can get a much-needed relaxing day out with the "girls," with a combination of fun and learning, at SCCC with this year's Ladies’ Saturday Retreat set for Saturday, April 8.
The day features a mix of pampering, socializing and workshops. The theme focuses on "Activate, Motivate and Rejuvenate!"
The all-day event begins with a bagel, coffee and registration at 9 a.m. and culminates with a post-dinner comedy show at 8 p.m. — offering a range of activities for women and girls 12 years and older.
From shopping to spa favorites to picking up some healthy habits, this popular annual event also makes for a perfect mother-daughter bonding experience or a girlfriends’ mini-getaway. A special wine tasting event will be included as well featuring Cava Winery in Hamburg.
Workshops cover an array of motivational, informational nd recreational topics, including dream interpretation, stress management, organization, dance, wild and plant life, photography, meditation and car maintenance.
The Oasis Room will be open by appointment for complimentary mini spa treatments, which may include massages, makeup makeovers and facials.
A cafe reception lunch features specialties from numerous local eateries.
The vendor showcase is an easy way to support locally owned businesses. Shop for jewelry, makeup, crafts and other knick-knacks. Exhibitors will also include representatives from county services and organizations available to women.
Upon the completion of afternoon workshops, the over-18 attendees are invited to an evening of entertainment with “Too Funny” comedian Kerri Louise. Louise knows how to turn the world on with her hysterical stories, original humor and boisterous characters.
Two levels of tickets are available. General admission includes breakfast, access to shopping, pampering sessions, workshops and lunch with adult tickets for $60 and girls 12-18, $40.
All-inclusive ticket also includes the dinner and comedy show. Tickets cost $85 and are available to adults 18 and over. Groups of 10 or more will receive $10 off each all inclusive ticket.
Husbands and boyfriends can attend dinner and comedy show for $45 per person, or attend just the comedy show for $22 in advance and $25 at the door.
A portion of the retreat’s proceeds will support scholarships for women attending SCCC.
