Last year we celebrated local bloggin’ mamas with a social, and we are busy planning the next one, which will take place on July 9, 2010 from 6:00-8:00pm at Gallery D. If you are a local mom who blogs about anything from parenting to your career or your passions, we look forward to meeting and mingling with you!
If you are wondering what exactly we do at the Bloggin’ Mama Social, we gather to eat, drink, socialize, listen to a special guest speaker talk about her journey and put in some good face-to-face time with other local moms. There are goodie bags stuffed with samples, products and coupons from local companies that will be given out to all bloggin’ mamas who attend. We also bid on excellent items donated by local companies in a silent auction. You can read all about last year’s event here.
Last year’s profits (we raised over $800!!) from the silent auction were given to Baby Ike and his family. This year, we are looking for a local charity to receive the funds raised from this year’s Bloggin’ Mama Social’s silent auction. If you you have a favorite local charity who you would like to nominate, leave a comment here by Friday, June 4, 2010. The LiveMom staff will review all nominations and pick one lucky charity.
If you would like to attend the Bloggin’ Mama Social, please send an email to me with your name and email address to be added to the invite list; those will be going out in the next couple of weeks.The social is open to the public, but your name must be on the invite list to attend.
A special thanks to Food on the Table for sponsoring the 2010 Bloggin’ Mama Social and also to Gallery D for hosting. If you are a local business interested in participating, we are still looking for a couple of sponsors. We also are accepting items for the silent auction and the goodie bags. Email: Catherine[at]LiveMom.com. It is free for moms to attend and free for businesses who would like to be included in the goodie bags. Stay tuned for more details!!
