For the second year in a row, tickets sold out in a mere three minutes!
Swag bags were stuffed with impressive goodies from some of our favorite brands and businesses. The food was delicious and the drinks were flowing. On Thursday, October 26th, 300 moms had a night to themselves to get relax, shop, and get crafty. Mummies’ Night Out 2017 was fabulously fun – all treats and no tricks. We can’t wait to see you ghouls again next year!
A special thank you to our Co-Title Sponsors, Smith Orthodontics and Ashley HomeStore – and of course to the WMB Team – without you, our events could not be a success!
We were all smiles working with Smith Orthodontics‘ knowledgeable team of heroes. Their “Witch’s Brew” was a delightful mocktail and paired nicely with the gorgeous chocolates they handed out. Moms toted around their swag in bags provided by Smith Orthodontics that continued to fill to the brim throughout the night.
We’ve loved working with Ashley HomeStore and value their commitment to bringing quality furniture, accessories, and mattresses to Wichita families. Guests ohhh and ahhhed over their aspirational display all night and everyone crossed their fingers to win one of the two $2,500 shopping sprees.
We couldn’t have asked for a more chic backdrop for our Mummies’ Night Out. The Wichita Art Museum was our generous host for our evening. The Museum Store is a hidden gem and was graciously open for Mummies’ shopping.
What more could you ask for in a night out, than pampering, shopping, and a little crafting? We had so much fun with all of our table sponsors: Barre Forte, Everyday Beaut, Family First Chiropractic, Heartland Women’s Group, In The Bag Cleaners, J.Crew Merchantile, Love of Character, Mid Kansas Pediatrics, Opti-Life, Paint the Towne, Pigtails & Crewcuts, Primrose Schools of Wichita, Salon Brands, Scharenberg Chiropractic Offices, Shop Mondays, and Tousled.
Eats, Drinks, and Sweets
We had a fantastic time sampling some of the best drinks and dishes from some of Wichita’s favorites. We enjoyed sweet and savory treats and amazing drinks from Bagatelle Bakery, Cambridge Liquor, Demo Sales, John’s Pita Bakery, The Muse, NuWAY, Oak & Pie, Olive Tree, Parsnipity Café, September Moon Cupcakery, Songbird Juice Co., and Two Olives.
