What a way to kick off Mother’s Day! The second annual ‘Mamas Night Out’ event at the top of the Rittenhouse on Saturday night brought 350 women together to play and fundraise.
With pretty appetizers on plates and drinks in hand, groups of women settled down to reflect on what the event was all about. Organizers Michelle Riddle of Scotts Valley and Cara Pearson of spoke to the crowd about the fight against pediatric cancer. The mood was somber during an emotional film presentation as moms shared their own incomprehensible experience of trying to cope with their child’s cancer.
The message was clear: “There is a direct correlation between increasing research dollars and decreasing mortality rates. Fighting cancer is something no child should have to endure and no child should have to lose their fight because of lack of support.” Gretchen Holt-Witt, Founder of Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
Moms felt good about indulging themselves since profits raised by the event went to help the organization dedicated to raising money for pediatric cancer research.
Glitter tattoos, tarot card readings, hair tinsel, back massages, and photos complete with funny props where big treats for many mamas. Jewelry sales and accessories by sponsors like Stella and Dot, Ruby Roxanne Designs, and Silpada along with clothing merchants Brody & Cole, , and more provided something for everyone.
The floor shook as women kicked off their heels and danced to hip hop. Others popped raffle tickets into jars hoping to win awesome prizes like wine passports, Pilate packages or the $1,000. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer complete fundraising package including a handmade bake sale stand.
