The 5th annual glitz & garland was a huge success with lots of happy shoppers and vendors.  The Benton Chamber and the Saline Memorial Health Foundation want to thank presenting sponsor Everett Buick-GMC and Girls Night Out sponsor Dillard's.  We also want to thank the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event work.  Of course, we couldn't have done it without our vendors and shoppers.  We are already looking forward to next year!
