ERIC SUCAR staff EAST BRUNSWICK — A group of community volunteers will get together for an evening of fun and fashion from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.

The Brunswick Women’s Connection, which comprises women from North Brunswick, East Brunswick, Milltown, South River and other local communities, will model outfits from Ann Taylor Loft in North Brunswick at The Chateau in East Brunswick.

“I think we all want to enlarge our wardrobe without spending a lot of money,” Roxanne Kamichoff said. “We really want to make women feel special and make women feel appreciated, and have a girls’ night out.”

There will also be a presentation by Dawn Loken, a Realtor who deals with the daily challenges of an unpredictable business. She will talk about how she received personal “freedom from bitterness.”
