Kershaw County women are invited to a night on the town for the second annual Downtown Divas Go Red for Women’s Heart Health Month, to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 17.

The Downtown Camden Guild (DCG) event will celebrate Women’s Heart Health Month with a mission of building heart health awareness among women, raising money for the American Heart Association (AHA), providing a time for women to socialize, and highlighting downtown businesses. Women are encouraged to wear red at the event in support of heart health awareness.

Refreshments will be provided by The Catery on Broad, Aberdeen Catery, and Traders of Camden. The event begins 1014 Broad St., where KershawHealth will offer free blood pressure checks, body composition analysis and diabetes/heart disease education. Women will have the opportunity to explore several downtown businesses, including Sam Kendall’s, Blake & Ford, Sisters of Camden, Artists’ Attic, TenEleven Galleria, Travis’ Salon, Ann Temple & Co., Salud Tequila Bar, Broad Street Market, Victoria Susan, Nature’s Treasure and Charlie’s on Broad with the chance to win a number of gifts and prizes. The night will culminate at 7:30 p. m. with guest speaker Carolyn Ham, along with door prizes and other activities.

Event T-shirts will be $15 and available for purchase at 1014 Broad St. and the TenEleven Galleria, with proceeds benefiting the AHA. Diva Hearts will be available at area banks -- including First Community Bank, First Citizens Bank, NBSC, Wachovia Bank and Bank of America -- for a $2 donation benefiting the AHA throughout the month of February.

Parking downtown has been reserved for the Downtown Divas Go Red, and the Camden Police Department will be on patrol to ensure a safe, secure evening.
