Join in the Hunt For WOW with Pleasant Ridge Town Center and Women's Own Worth! June 13th, 14th, and 15th will be three days full of fun, gifts, prizes, food and a scavenger hunt at the Pleasant Ridge Town Center featuring an incredible group of local area businesses to support WOW! This three-day event will be taking place throughout the shopping center, which is located in West Little Rock, during regular hours (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
Rebecca Nelson, with the Pleasant Ridge Town Center, says the event is a way for people to learn more about what is available at the town center and provide an opportunity for some beginning of summer fun. “It’s a promotion to remind people to come in and have fun, that we have shops, dining and services. Hopefully, by scattering the events throughout the shopping center, people won’t have just one destination,” she says.
Most importantly, the event is a partnership with Women’s Own Worth (W.O.W.), an organization that is dedicated to empowering women and families who have experienced domestic violence and trauma. “We are teaming with Women’s Own Worth to have an event. It’s not sale, it’s not a sidewalk sale,” Nelson says. “It’s a promotion, and we named it the “Hunt for WOW”, but we’re also teaming up with W.O.W., so there’s a double meaning.”
WOMEN’S OWN WORTH EMPOWERS WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES TO REGAIN THEIR SELF-WORTH BY ENABLING THEM TO SUSTAIN AN INDEPENDENT LIFE AFTER SUFFERING THE EFFECTS OF TRAUMA. WOW PROVIDES SERVICES SUCH AS COUNSELING FOR VICTIMS AND FAMILIES, ASSISTANCE WITH LIVING ARRANGEMENTS AND TRANSPORTATION, DENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, HIGHER EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS AND VICTIM’S ADVOCACY.
