'Emma's Pajama Party' Puts PJs on Kids at Kent Social Services

Inaugural event organized by women of Kent Coterie

Have you ever wanted to wear your pajamas for a night on the town?

Now you can thanks to the women of the Kent Coterie, and it's all for a good cause.

The group, which maintains the Patton House, a historic Victorian home on West Main Street, is holding the inaugural Emma's Pajama Party Oct. 18 to help provide displaced children in Kent with pajamas.

The ladies-only event will be held at The Rusty Nail with a dessert-first dinner, silent auction, photo booth, chair massages and other special treats — including a "Pajama-tini" signature drink made of cranberry juice, raspberry vodka, pineapple and sparkling champagne.

Rebekah Kulis, president of Kent Coterie, said she saw a similar fundraiser while on vacation in California and brought the idea home with her.

"It's something new and different," she said.

Tickets are $50. For $75, "pajama princesses" will be listed in the event's program guide.

Proceeds will help buy pajamas for children who have been displaced for safety or economic reasons via Kent Social Services.

Kulis said the biggest question she gets about the event is if ladies attending will in fact be wearing pajamas.

"Yes they are," she said. "It doesn't matter if they're flanel, flowered, polka dotted. Any kind is fine."

The pajama party is open to the public. Tickets are available by calling 330-352-5256.

Prizes in the silent auction will include a wood-fired oven pizza party for 16, golf baskets and more.

Kulis said they hope to get 100 people at the first pajama party.

"If we could raise $2,000 for our first event, we would be happy," she said.
