Women can get spoiled rotten at the Women Fall into Winter event, from 6-8p.m. Wednesday at Evergreen Ford, 1500 18th Ave. N.W.
Admission is free for women visiting the more than 60 area merchants, including those providing massages, waxing, hairstyles and manicures. Prizes valued at $50 will be given out every five minutes. Local restaurants will serve free samples, and wine-tasting and beer tickets will be sold for $5 each.
Entertainment will be provided by musicians and the emcee, comedian Todd Southwick.
Adventure Kids Playcare will offer free childcare nearby, at 775 Gilman Blvd.
The event benefits Encompass, a nonprofit organization in North Bend that offers services in parenting, child development and feeding issues. Representatives from Encompass will be at the event to answer questions.
In May, Women Spring into Summer! drew about 200 women and close to 70 vendors, said Lynn Rehn, community service director for Evergreen Ford.
