Timing is everything, right? We’ve survived the summer, and some of us have finally settled into a back-to-school groove. But in a month or so, the holiday rush-rush-rush will begin. So we figure the time is right for a party. But not just any party — this one is a “Motherlode Pampering Party,” and you can win an invitation to come (and bring one friend) to this special bash just for moms.
Not only is this a Pampering Party for moms, it’s also a way to shine some light on a new non-profit group in Northwest Arkansas called Saving Grace. This organization helps young women who are aging out of the foster care system. Each of our guests will be asked to bring one package of efficiency light bulbs which will be used in the newly renovated Saving Grace dormitory.
The nwaMotherlode Pampering Party will be held on Friday, October 2nd at Cuisines Bistro in Rogers. Here’s what we’ve got planned:
What we’ll do: Hand, foot and chair massage stations from I.M. Spa will be set up and ready to pamper some mamas for free!
What we’ll eat: This Cuisines menu is amazing and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and a really big dessert buffet.
What we’ll drink: Fancy virgin cocktails (because some of our mamas are pregnant or will be driving).
What you’ll hear: Becky Shaeffer, who grew up in the foster care system, founded this new non-profit and she’ll be at the party to tell us a little more about it. We’ll also introduce some of the mamas who contribute articles to nwaMotherlode.com on a regular basis as well as some of our sponsors.
HOW TO WIN A SPOT AT THE PARTY: Click the word “comment” below and tell us why you and a friend would like to come to the party! (You can also send us an e-mail at giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com.) We’ll select five readers at random and let you know on Wednesday if you snagged an invitation.
This party is our way of saying “thank you” to so many of the people who have made this website what it is. Without the help of our sponsors, contributors and especially our loyal readers, we just couldn’t pull this thing off. We really wish there was a way we could throw a party for the more than 10,000 moms who visit our site each month, but the Cuisines Bistro just isn’t that big!
We’re looking forward to the big party, and we hope you’ll throw your name in the hat for our random drawing so you can join us!
