Disclosure :: Our 5th Annual Moms Night Out was sponsored by: Children’s Hospital, Touro Infirmary, Engel and Voelkers, Sazerac and The Ogden Museum of Southern Art. The title sponsors answered all of our emails and calls quickly and with grace. It’s always a pleasure to plan events alongside professional and gracious hosts.
For FIVE years running, we have worked with both Touro and Children’s Hospital to produce this anticipated New Orleans event, and it has been our absolute pleasure. Our team has had extensive personal experiences at both hospitals (everything from delivering our bundles of joy to broken legs and surgery), and we are delighted that our readers often share similar positive experiences with our title sponsors. This year, we were thrilled add another title sponsor: the amazing team at Engel and Volkers who will meet your every real estate need. Most families will change homes at some point and we cannot recommend the team at Engel and Volkers enough. Even our executive team has used their services. Let them take care of you, and you will not be disappointed!
Our events simply would not be possible without the sponsorship of the aforementioned local businesses. Hitting the CBD in your jammies would not have happened without them. I speak for our entire team and the 500 beautiful moms in attendance when I say “THANK YOU!”
Mom’s Night Out Recap
Our event on Saturday, August 19 was a BLAST to say the least! Imagine 500+ women, mostly moms, decked out in their finest athleisure wear, which ranged from yoga pants, bath robes, pajamas and everything in between dancing the night away.
We want to thank all of you for spending your Saturday night with us and totally getting into the theme of the evening; we were blown away by the creativity in your wardrobes. It is humbling to see how many of you came ready to party with us, and we were all truly excited to meet those of you who read our content. To be able to party with our virtual New Orleans friends is part of why we do what we do, and it is what makes us a true local parenting website for New Orleans. We strive to provide you with the highest quality events possible and continue to be humbled by your response to our efforts. We know it was hot, but we so appreciate your grace and understanding. We had a great time socializing and dancing with you and we hope you enjoyed your night off from mom-duty! Thank you for coming and for getting into the spirit!
Building community goes beyond getting to know your neighbors. It’s also about shopping local and getting to know your locally owned and operated businesses. Our events provide a convenient setting for consumers and businesses to interact and learn about each other. We cannot say enough about the local business owners who gracefully went with the flow of the layout change due to lightening and warmly greeted all of our guests to share their products and services with you all. We thank each and every one of them for not only showing up but for being engaging and noticeably thrilled to meet our guests. It was a wonderful evening.

We were thrilled to send New Orleans Women and Children’s Shelter, the largest organization serving homeless women and children in New Orleans, away with a U-Haul truck full of goods. They are dedicated to creating a safe, secure and stable environment where classes, tools and resources build the pathway to success. Their programs keep families together and empower self-sufficiency – every step of the journey. For each item our guests donated to NOWCS, they received a raffle ticket to enter an amazing giveaway from the following sponsors.
