MILLBURN, NJ - The Downtown Millburn Development Alliance (“DMDA”) hosted 1,100 women at its fifth annual Girls Night Our celebration on Thursday evening. Shopping was the agenda of the night, with 50 merchants participating – some as sponsors and many as hosts with raffles and refreshments for all.   

The event is one of the highlights of the year put on by the alliance, which also sponsors the Snowflake Parade, Small Shop Day, Trick-or-Treat Day, and the weekly warm-weather Farmers’ Market. All profits from the evening’s event will be donated to the Opportunity Project, a Millburn-based organization that supports individuals who have sustained brain injuries.

Vicky and Shala Powell are owners of a design and gift store that has been a presence in Millburn for 30 years. Vicky is also the head of special events for DMDA and is on its executive board. She described Girls Night Out as “an open house to welcome women to see the shops, shop local, meet the merchants and have a good time.” She described the stores in downtown Millburn as “mom and pop” shops that the residents of Millburn and Short Hills "embrace as neighbors.”

Gillian Moritz, the administrative coordinator of DMDA, attributed the increase in attendance from prior years of approximately 800 women to DMDA’s social media presence. She feels that Girls' Night Out is important in introducing women into downtown Millburn and to thank other women for their continuing patronage. Kisha Barner of Pure Ambiance Event Design was the event planner for the festivities and entertainment was provided by DJ Priore of Dboy Entertainment of Millburn. Sponsors of the event included  Saint Barnabas Medical Center - Barnabas Health, Investors Bank, Red Carpet Boutique, Moonshine Modern Supper Club, Wells Fargo, Bulan Plastic Surgery, José Eber Salon, Martini Bistro & Bar, PBA, Pure Barre, Regal Bank, Schultz Furrier, The Salad House. Gito, Jia Boutique, Sharma Holistic Medical Center,
New Frontier, and The Millburn Eye.    

Town residents Andrea Bergman, Shari Stein, and Lori Pitkowsky enjoyed the evening’s celebration for the fifth year in a row by dining outside of the sushi restaurant on Millburn Avenue. They said they were “celebrating our wonderful town and our friendship.” Among the many attendees was Vera Colitti, an Italian woman whose family settled in Millburn in the 1950s. She founded a small shop in Millburn called Eleganza which featured designer couture. Although Eleganza closed in 1998, Colitti was excited to attend Girls Night Out 2015.
