Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Mom Prom April 26th!

We’re SO EXCITED about the NWA Mom Prom which happens THIS Saturday, April 26th from 7 p.m. to midnight at the Springdale Holiday Inn Ballroom. We’re in the last few days of ticket sales, so we’re kicking off this final week by giving away TWO tickets to Mom Prom to one Motherlode reader. If we draw your name (at random), you and a friend can come party until the stroke of midnight at the “ultimate girls night out” event in NWA. This awesome party is made possible, again this year, by presenting sponsor Great Day Farms.

laughHOW TO ENTER: To throw your name in the online hat to win two tickets to Mom Prom, just click the words “post a comment” below and tell us at least one reason why it’s so important to hang out with your girlfriends now and then. (For us, it’s all that laughing! Sharing good chocolate is a big plus, too, and we’ve got an incredible dessert table lined up for the Prom.) What do you love about a night out with the girls?

We’ll choose a name (AT RANDOM) on Wednesday and notify you via email, so please watch your inbox. We want the winner to have a few days to make plans  to attend.

WHAT IS MOM PROM? Just in case you don’t already know, the NWA Mom Prom is a massive girls’ night out, intended for women and mothers age 21 and up. (You don’t have to be a mom to attend, but you do have to be female and 21.)

It looks and sounds just like a real prom, except we ditched all the teenage drama and angst and left only the fun stuff. This is the PERFECT opportunity to dress up, go out with your friends, eat, dance, laugh, have professional and photo booth photos made with your buddies, AND possibly win one of the amazing raffle prizes featured at Mom Prom.

There’s no other event like this one in NWA. Although Mom Proms happen across the country in various cities, this is the ONLY one in the state of Arkansas. A portion of proceeds go to support a local non-profit called Laundry Love, which partners with laundromats throughout NWA to clean the clothes of those living in poverty. Laundry Love is an initiative of The Cobblestone Project.

Mom Prom Are You InWE WANT YOU THERE! As moms who watch our pennies, we completely understand that many moms are reluctant to spend money on themselves and might not buy a $40 ticket to Mom Prom for that reason. We’re careful with money, too, so we get it. But please keep in mind that this is one of the least expensive charity fundraisers in our area and it offers a huge return.

Not only do you get five hours of entertainment with friends, you also get free professional photos, photo booth pictures, amazing food and desserts, and you’ll leave with a really cute Swag Bag, sponsored this year by Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall and stuffed full of goodies. In short, this is a DEAL, ladies. The cost of the ticket is likely the same or lower than what you’d spend on dinner, drinks and a movie with friends, and the money raised goes to a wonderful non-profit which helps families in our area.

And yes, you really DO have something to wear to Mom Prom. We guarantee that something you have in your closet right npinnacle-hills-promenade-logoow will work. Last year there was a wide range of dresses represented at Mom Prom — everything from casual summer maxi dresses to formal floor-length gowns. Anything goes! Just wear something you feel great in. Click HERE to get your ticket right now.

Here are a few of the highlights about this year’s prom:

DANCING QUEENS, REPORT TO THE DANCE FLOOR: We happen to think dancing is pretty good for the soul and a seFlooring America logorious stress reliever. We had so many women dancing at last year’s Mom Prom that we ran out of dance floor and spilled over onto the carpet. So this year we’re bringing in a larger, seriously cool LED dance floor to kick the party up to the next level. The high-tech dance floor is sponsored by Flooring America by Carpetsmart.

LADIES LOUNGING Theraderm Clinical Skin Care is sponsoring the gorgeous lounge area at this year’s Mom Prom. The lounge is full of beautiful white sofas and is the perfect spot to sit with friends, have a drink and snacks, and take a little breather from all the dancing. There will also be ladies from Theraderm there providing some free pampering services like hand massages. (No need to buy a thing! This is all complimentary, thanks to our awesome Lounge Sponsor.)

first bankBEST FOOT FORWARD: First Bank is sponsoring the “Shoe Bank” again this year! Woo-hoo! That was such a hit last year as moms “deposited” their sparkly shoes in the cubbies. After dancing the night away, Prom attendees could “withdraw” their shoes.

brieshiGLAM SQUAD AT YOUR SERVICE: The “Mom Prom Glam Squad” is a new addition this year and we KNOW you’re gonna love it! Stylists and make-up artists from Brieshi Salon and Spa in Rogers will be at the Prom, located near the photo areas, to touch up your make-up and fix any fly-away hair for you — free o’ charge! Haven’t you always wanted your own glam squad, just like the celebrities use? Well, now you do.

You’ll want to let the Glam Squad get you all fixed up before you visit the Photo Shoot Station, which will once again be sponsored and hosted by our favorite local photographer, the amazing Lisa Mac of Lisa Mac Photography. (Remember all those incredible shots she took last year? We’re SO PUMPED she is back for this year’s Mom Prom.) Once again, all photos will be available for free download a week or two after Prom night.

A PHOTO BOOTH MACHINE, TOO! Because the Prom photos were SO popular last year, we’ve added an additional photo area to this year’s Mom Prom. (You can do both areas!) There’ll be the Photo Shoot station, just like last year. And there will also be a traditional Photo Booth Machine that you climb into with a few friends. The photo booth will print your picture card immediately so you’ll have a memory to take home and put on your fridge immediately. The new Photo Booth is sponsored by Sisters Mercy Women’s Health Boutique.

sisterslogoNEW PROM QUEEN PERKS! The 2014 Mom Prom Queen will truly feel like royalty when she’s crowned and then presented with a sash, crown, flowers and a $500 First Security Bank Visa card! First Security’s signature color is teal, so the Prom Queen sash will be that color as well. The Prom Queen is chosen at random from among all ticket holders, so anyone can win!

First Security bank betterRAFFLE REVELRY: One of this year’s raffle items will blow your mind. It’s a brand new washer and dryer set from Metro Appliances & More! For a $2 raffle ticket, you might end up with appliances that normally sell for over $1,000, delivered to your laundry room. Sweet, huh?

TheMustache_Fay-Bent_CS5_TMNEW CELEBRITY DATES! The celebrity guys were a HUGE hit last year. Those hunks were hauled from one end of the ballroom to the other (and visited at least one hotel room before coming back downstairs to party!). Sponsored by The Mustache, we’ll have some new dates for you to dance with and snap pics with this year!

A BALLROOM FIT FOR A QUEEN: If you want to stretch Prom night into a slumber party at the hotel, you can! Just book a hotel room at the awesome Holiday Inn by calling 479-751-8300 and mention the Mom Prom to get a discounted room rate. This hotel staff went above and beyond to help make last year’s prom amazing and they’re already making sure we have everything we need to make this one spectacular Prom Night! Once again, Metroplex Even Center will turn the hotel ballroom into a work of art worthy of so many pretty women. We have some new decor ideas that we know you’ll love. The Party Place is helping us out with some special plans this year as well. Back by popular demand, the awesome Dancenhance DJ at last year’s Mom Prom is coming back for this year’s party! His name is Frankie, and he takes song requests. :-)

    For me I know it’s important for my best friend and I to be able to blow off steam, have fun and relax occasionally so we can keep our hearts focused on our family’s and give them the patience and love they deserve. Moms need a night for themselves occasionally to recharge and refocus!

  2. Lindsay Phillips says:

    I have two friends that have children and are not able to afford to get a ticket themselves. They deserve a break and a night away and I would love to be able to help provide this for them. They are great in spirit and so much fun to be around. They are amazing mothers and do everything for their children so they deserve to have something done for them. Music, dancing, prizes, pictures, chocolate and dinner would be so much fun for them to enjoy!

  3. Angie Calix says:

    It’s important for moms to hang with friends on a regular basis because we need an outlet for our stress as moms. Laughter and camaraderie are the best cures for stress!

  4. Alexis Warnick says:

    We just have to get one last night out before school is out! And who wouldn’t want to dress up and dance the night away!! :). So excited!

  5. Ashley Myers says:

    For me, it’s the opportunity to laugh until your sides hurt and reminisce on old times. It’s also the (rare) opportunity to have some much needed grown up interaction, being the moms of small children.

  6. kimberly white says:

    It is supper important to have girl time so that you can stay connected to your gal pals. After all girl time is when we are able to have some pamper, catch up, and recharge time for busy moms.

    • Kyra Gregory says:

      The best part of girls night is the laughs!!
      We have so much fun talking and laughing. It really allows me to forget stress or everyday duties and just have fun.

  7. Brittney says:

    Between work, home, community and kids, it’s much needed to get together with the gals every now and then to celebrate our friendship! I love girl’s night with my friends and can’t wait to attend Mom Prom with them again this year!

  8. Stephanie says:

    Such a great idea, a night out with the girls and no kids. I know my friends and I are ready to rock and roll with all the ladies. Finding time to spend with my girl friends is hard for all of us, what a perfect way to do it. Plus, getting to go shopping for a new dress, WooHoo!!

  9. Every mom needs a little me time. And nothing beats some girl time. Let off some steam, have some laughs and fun. I know when I do get girl time I’m a better and more patient mom :)

  10. Its important to get out and hang out with your girlfriends because we work all day, all night. 24/7 to make everyone else happy. Once in a while we need to let our hair down leave the house and get all dolled up and go out with somebody who actually understands us. Mom prom is definitely the perfect opertunity to leave the babies at home (including dad lol) and treat yourself to a girls night eat some chocolate and not regret it

  11. I try and have girls night every once in a while, just to get my girlfriends out and spend some quality time with them. We all have busy lives. I am taking care of two of my grandchildren, and I need a little time to myself with a good friend. Dancing and laughing is good for the soul.

  12. We get to see each other on Facebook or at our kids’ events or ‘on the fly’ between errands, but seldom get those moments for quality fun and conversation. A night out is not only great for building those friendships, but energizes us for the life we love with our children. I am so excited there is a Mom Prom this weekend, and would love to go and take another deserving Moma with me!!!

  13. robin smith says:

    girls night out is just focusing on venting, laughing…blowing some steam!

  14. Brianna epple says:

    For me it’s important to have a girls night out because I am due with twins in August and I have a 16 month old son! I don’t get a lot of time to myself. But I wouldn’t change it for anything! I went to the mom prom last year and I had a blast! That is the longest I had ever been away from my son besides work even to this day. But I know so many people going this year and it would be amazing to win tickets!!! Thank you for the chance!!

  15. Sometimes we all need a little girl time! I love my husband, but my house is full of boys! I have two sons, our dogs are boys, even our lizard! Every once in a while, I need to giggle ridiculously and be around someone who understands my emotional side! That’s where my ladies come in!

  16. An occasional girls night helps recharge mom so she can be her very best for her kids. We need to empower and encourage one another and what better way to do that than having a great time together!

  17. We get together so all moms can be supporting one another while having a great time!

  18. Kristi button says:

    Girl time …friend time is very important. We ground each other, support each other and who else are you going to kick back and eat too much chocolate with? Margaritas anyone??

  19. Hanging out with the girls is such a stress reliever!!!

  20. Angela Beshears says:

    It’s nice to laugh and have adult conversation! Dressing up and dancing with friends will be a bonus! What a great way to get recharged and remember we are important too!

  21. Girls night out is about forgetting about everything you have to take care of and just do something for yourself.

    • I went last year and had a blast! It’s nice to have an ladies evening out every once in awhile, and this event allows us to get all dressed up (which doesn’t happen often). The food is good, the dance floor is hopping, and we had so much fun wih the photographer. It’s so worth it gals!

  22. Amitty Fryar says:

    Between 3 kids and a full time job it is hard to get a night out with the girls (especially when they all live so far away). It’s great to get out for a little while and let my hair down once in a while. Can’t wait for the mom prom. Already have a sitter all lined up!

  23. Melissa Mengler says:

    For sanity purposes…plain and simple. :)

  24. Christy P. says:

    I just want to dance while being fancy and carefree with my closest friends! Girl time is always a must in our busy lives!! :)

  25. It woulod be nice to relese stress by laughing and dancing with other moms

  26. It’s important to have time away to rest and recoup and rejuvenate so you can be the best mom you can be.

  27. To keep you sane & smiling :)
