No Date Required

Seems like just yesterday when you were lining up on the sidewalk to get into the hottest dance club in town.  Now your days and nights are kid-focused and the most dancing you’ve done is some rockin’ out to the Wiggles in the living room. If it turns out there’s still a little shake left in that booty, mark your calendar for April 10th and the upcoming Seattle Mom Prom for a night of dancing and fun surrounded by friends.
Shortly after local mom Myla Rugge had her baby (almost 2 years ago), she was feeling a little lonely one night and was missing her friends and her old life a bit. But, instead of throwing herself a pity party, she decided to plan the ultimate ladies night; the Seattle Mom Prom. Rugge’s goal is to celebrate moms while contributing proceeds to a great local cause for women…Postpartum Support International of WA, (a non-profit supporting families affected by postpartum mood disorders).
The Seattle Mom Prom is the perfect opportunity to dance and have a fun time with all the ladies in your life. So round up all your peeps (no, not the marshmallow kinds), your fellow preschool moms, your PEPS group, or just some long-lost pals who’ve fallen by the wayside since baby’s arrival, and get mom’s night out on the books. The Prom will feature wine, non-alcoholic beverages, delish desserts from Trophy Cupcakes, great raffle prizes (theatre tix, photo shoots, restaurants etc…), and even photo ops. Rugge has even heard from groups who are making a whole night of it by getting limos and hotel rooms.
What’s the dress code? Rugge says anything goes! Some are wearing dresses from bridesmaids-past while others are wearing current “going-out” attire. One thing’s for sure, everything looks better with a tiara…bring your own or a pick up one at the prom (limited supply available).
Seattle Mom Prom Saturday, April 10th 8pm-Midnight at the South Lake Union Naval Reserve Building
$35 in advance/$40 at the door. Follow the event on Facebook or Twitter. Proceeds benefit Postpartum Support International of WA
PS: Want to support the Seattle Mom Prom and PSI of WA, but can’t make it?  You can sponsor a ticket for another mom who can’t afford it.  Raffle donations from great local businesses are still being collected too!
