Steppin' Out in Style shopping event March 19

Women are stepping out in style to help others. A private shopping event  will be held later this month to benefit First Step, an organization that helps women affected by domestic violence. Most items will be 30 percent off, and cosmetics will be 15 percent off. You'll also have the chance to win raffle prizes, with a top prize of $100 cash.

The event is at Carson's in Laurel Park Place on Sunday, March 19 from 6:30 - 9 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. All ticket proceeds benefit First Step Western Wayne County Project on Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault. For more information and tickets go to
