Get ready to SHOP LOCAL with the Friends of Youth Services (FoYS) “Girlfriends’ Boutique: A New Vision”!  While we may not be able to hold the annual Girlfriends’ Brunch in person, we are excited to bring to you a new, exciting way to not only support Youth Services, but also support community businesses by shopping local! This year’s event will be held from Friday, November 6th through Thursday, November 12th.

There are two ways to participate:

  • Donate $75 as a SHOPPER: You will receive exclusive discounts at all participating businesses (brick and mortar AND online). Each shopper will receive an non-transferable individual code, which will be  valid throughout the 7-day event. It will be the perfect time to stock up on your holiday gifts!
  • Donate $75 as a BUSINESS: You will be introduced to an array of shoppers from throughout the area who will enjoy discounts and benefits you offer. Your business will be included in event promotion and the #SHOPLOCALforYS social media campaign.

The hashtag #ShopLocalforYS will be used to encourage participating businesses and shoppers to join in on the conversation to promote this exciting, new way of hosting one of the best local shopping events of the year! These are challenging times and we appreciate the support of this amazing community. YOU truly make a difference.

The FoYS Committee is growing! Please contact Michelle Brody at  if you would like to get more involved. Thank you again for joining us and for your generosity!

A special Thank You to our 2020 event sponsors!
