When we received a phone call from NWAMotherlode, we were overwhelmed and extremely grateful. If you don’t know about NWAMotherlode, you need to know. NWAMotherlode was created to give moms in Northwest Arkansas a fun place to get together online to read, laugh and compare notes on motherhood. This year, they hosted their first Mom Prom, a HUGE girls’ night out for moms and women and wanted to benefit Laundry Love Project. The party went so well they plan on making this an annual event.
On May 4th, 330 women gathered in Springdale to celebrate NWA Mom Prom. Friends gathered and enjoyed great food, drinks, music and dancing, raffles for fun luxuries and gift-baskets, and an obscene amount of laughter. Attendees were welcomed on the red carpet and photographed with some of the popular entertainers of our day including Ryan Gosling, Adam Levine, George Clooney, and Channing Tatum. As the Mom’s proceeded into the ballroom, they were welcomed by upbeat dance music, lavish “girly” décor, the hue of pink lights and a ridiculously fun atmosphere.
On behalf of Laundry Love, I (Stephanie) was thrilled to share the vision of creating “a Community Without Need” through the amazing initiative of the LLP. I was able to share the reason Laundry Love exists, the need that exists in our community, and provide a way for momma’s alike to get involved in solving this issue.
I am thankful to all of the women who came, listened and participated in such an incredible evening. Each person can truly change the world, even one load of laundry at a time. These Mommas were able to raise $3,000 for our Laundry Love initiative! We invite you to change the world with us! Sign up to volunteer at one of our upcoming Laundry Love Events.
A special thanks to Gwen Rockwood and Shannon Magsam. Also thanks to Lisa Mac Photography for the great pictures!
