Changing tires and mixing cocktails usually don’t happen in the same venue.
But at Harris Oceanside Chevrolet’s second annual ladies night, women will have the unique opportunity to learn about all things automotive while enjoying a glass of wine and feasting on cake pops and sushi among other tasty treats.
“We want to give back to the ladies of Oceanside,” said Kelly Chanakos, the dealership’s secretary who is helping organize the event. “It was so much fun last year.”
Chanakos explained the dealership will be decorated Tuesday, March 3 (the free event is from 6-9 p.m., call 250-248-8383 to reserve a spot) in an upscale beach theme complete with a red carpet and lots of prizes. She said every woman who attends will leave with a gift bag and there will also be a few big prizes including a vehicle detail to give away.
She said there will be many local vendors set up at the dealership including Pacific Brimm, Lady’s Mantle and Natural Synergy Day Spa. Chanakos said attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to change a tire, how brake alignments are done and go over OnStar services. She said the “grand finale” will be watching an air bag explode.

Last year about 80 women attended and organizers are expecting more than 100 people to come out this year.
“Every year this event is going to get bigger and better,” said Chanakos.
She said it started last year, spearheaded by Therese Maughan who noticed a need for an event like it in the community. Since then, Maughan has continued to organize the ladies night as the event grows in popularity.
