BUGirl holding pyjama parties aimed at inspiring girls and women

Religious touring group Beautiful Unique Girl (BUGirl) will be hosting three consecutive nights of pyjama parties aimed at empowering girls and women to discover their true beauty.

"It's a good opportunity to be able to speak to young girls and help them see themselves in a different light then what they see in the media," Captain Nancy Sheils from the Salvation Army said.

BUGirl will decorate the church to give an aura of a pyjama party. There will be games, a pizza dinner, nail painting, a chocolate fountain fondue, skits and a mini concert.

"It's a lot of fun [but it also sends a strong message] that might help them in their decision making as they mature," Captain Sheils said.

There will be a gathering for girls in grade 5 to 8 on Friday, Nov. 2 at 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. as well as one for girls in grade 9 through 12 on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 5 to 9 p.m.

Captain Sheils asked BUGirl to hold a women's night, something they don't usually do.

"Women need this as much as young girls," she started, adding, "The pressures get worse as we get older. Try to be a 50 year old lady when the world is telling you to look like you're 20. We need to have a healthy look at ourselves too so we're not trying to look like something that is out of our reach."

The women's pyjama party will kick off the events on Thursday, Nov. 1 starting at 5 p.m.

There is no cost to attend. All events will be held at the Salvation Army.
