The YWCA of Darien/Norwalk will hold its annual “Dazzling Decadent December” shopping event on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at Kirby & Company, 1029 Post Road, Darien. Ticket proceeds and a percentage of all sales on the day, at both Kirby and Company and Kirby Girl, will benefit the YWCA’s Parent Awareness programming. Beverages and light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Some Parent Awareness events included “What NOT to Teach Your Teen,” a binge-drinking prevention presentation and an upcoming school readiness discussion entitled “What is ‘Ready’ for Kindergarten?”

Each ticket purchased will be entered for a chance to win a special Dazzling Dinner Date Raffle package and also entitles each shopper to attend a pre-event wine tasting at Sipstirs. Tickets are $30 each or four tickets for $100, and can be purchased online at or by calling 203-655-2535.

This year’s shopping event also coincides with Giving Tuesday, a day designed to amplify the work of nonprofit organizations.

The YWCA Darien/Norwalk is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving women the support and tools they need to transform their lives, be confident in their choices and raise healthy families. Its national mission, eliminating racism and empowering women, translates locally into a vision to create opportunities for growth, leadership and empowerment for all women and families.
