Tina Manns remembers when times were so tight that she sometimes used her own money to buy bread and milk for abused women staying in a shelter.


“Girls Night Out is such a tremendous help and we’ve had various grants and donations,” she said. “It’s truly wonderful to know what we can help women with now.”


Girls Night Out, the annual women-only fundraiser that benefits YWCA Resolve Family Abuse Program, is set for 5 to 10 p.m. Aug. 2 at Executive Air at Yeager Airport.


About 1,000 women all dressed in white are expected to attend the event called “Girls Night Out White Hot Soiree.”
