The Levelland Main Street Programs, Ladies Night Out event was recognized on Wednesday by the Texas Downtown Association during their annual conference.
The Ladies Night Out event received the President’s Award for the Best Promotional Event as well as the Peoples Choice Award for the Best Promotional Event. For the President’s Award, 111 entries were submitted in eleven different categories from communities across the state. Judges reviewed entries online and then met in person to make their final selection of award finalists and winners. Winners were announced last night at the Awards Ceremony in Corpus Christi last night.
The idea of Ladies Night Out came 12 years ago from three downtown business owners according to information from the Levelland Main Street program. Meleta Atchison, owner of Atchison’s Jewelry; Toni Methvin, owner of Your Shop; and Mary Shakespeare, owner of LouDee’s Floral came up with the idea to host a combined event that would give their customers an experience unlike anywhere else. We have kept that atmosphere going from year to year and now average 15 stores participating in the event.” said Missy Passmore, Levelland Main Street Manager.
