Sponsored Event: Mom Mixer, March 30, 2019

This mom's event will allow you to be matched with moms who share your interests. There will be catered hors d’oeuvres and beverages from Holmes catering, coffee roasted locally from Little River Roasting Company and Cupcakes from Cakehead Bakeshop. Every participant will fill out a short survey before the event and then we will match you up with other moms that live near you, have kids the same age, or share interests. There will be time for mingling, food, and surprises. This is a no-networking/no-soliciting event to ensure that everyone coming is looking for friendship not sale prospects.
