“The Just For Her Event is Kansas City’s premier women’s event at the Overland Park Convention Center. We began in 2009 with an idea to bring a summer event to Kansas City for women to enjoy with friends and family. We never imagined the event would grow as it has to over 350 exhibitors. While the events focus heavily on shopping for the latest fashions and must-haves each season, we wanted it to be more than just a shopping event. Our goal was to tie in other things we knew women loved, including beauty, pampering, wellness, fitness, health, food, drinks and more.”Who do you think is KC’s most deserving woman?

For the past several years, Lauren Wants to Know & the McCarthy Auto Group have been a proud sponsor of the Just For Her Expo, a one-of-a-kind event that gives women the opportunity to shop, pamper and treat themselves — and learn something new while they’re doing it! This year’s expo took place over the past weekend, and we had more than 300 booths that featured fashion, food, wellness and beauty products. Women of all ages join in on the fun, and even sign up for the “Pamper Her Lounge,” where they received mini-spa treatments! We also had a new attraction — the Vintage & Handcrafted Marketplace, sponsored by my favorite refurbished furniture store, Restoration Emporium. But the highlight of the weekend was definitely the VIP party on Friday night, where we took Kansas City’s “Most Deserving Woman” out for a night of fun! This year the community voted for the lovely Dana Ward as the winner. Though the grand prize is the “McCarthy Makeover,” we also treated this wonderful momma, her daughter and two friends to the VIP treatment. In the Just For Her VIP lounge, we enjoyed a live band and tasty appetizers. Then we shopped for a few hours and finally, presented Dana with the “Most Deserving” package: an amazing goody package with more than $1,000 worth of gifts including shopping sprees, a hydrofashion, tanning packages, and more! The entire night was just as much fun for me as it was for Dana. She was so sweet, and I couldn’t get enough of her daughter Rana! Thanks to all who attended and the sponsors who made the night possible. There’s nothing like the ultimate girls’ night with great women! I already can’t wait for next year!
