GALENA, Ill. ─ Call, text, tweet or Facebook your best girlfriends and get them together for a weekend in Galena you won’t ever forget! Two full days (or longer if you’d like) of laughing, reliving memories and reconnecting all are planned just for you. The Galena Area Chamber of Commerce once again plans a special weekend for “girlfriends” of all ages from Friday, Sept. 7, through Sunday, Sept. 9.

This annual Galena Girlfriends’ Getaway will feature belly dancing lessons, Quartermania, a slipper party and more – just for the ladies – in beautiful, historic Galena in scenic northwest Illinois. A pre-registration fee includes your own Galena Girlfriends’ Getaway goody bag, entry to all of the events and a chance to win a $200 shopping spree.

The ever-popular Quartermania auction will happen once again, Saturday night at the Galena Convention Center starting at 6 p.m. Ladies can buy a roll of quarters, bid on a variety of interesting items, and see who gets the great bargains. A Saturday night “Slipper Party” at the Wal-Mart Supercenter beginning at 9:30 p.m. will feature games, refreshments and coupons.

Sunday’s finale at the DeSoto is a brunch with your “girlfriends” as the weekend will wrap up by announcing the winners of the shopping spree and gift baskets. Throughout the entire weekend, there are several dozen businesses throughout Galena and Jo Daviess County that are offering specials, drawings, and events to participants of the Galena Girlfriends’ Getaway.

For more event info, including venues and fees, call the Galena Area Chamber of Commerce at 815.777.9050 or visit galenachamber.com. Pre-registration is also available online at galenachamber.com.
