- Ladies Night Out Benefits Saratoga County Children’s Committee
SARATOGA SPRINGS— One of the biggest hits of last spring’s social season is back for another go-round. It’s the Saratoga Mom Prom, ladies and despite a much larger venue this year, you are well advised to make reservations with extreme haste, lest you get shut out.
“We moved to the Saratoga Hilton so that we can accommodate a larger group of attendees,” noted one of the organizers, Ms. Suzi Ingmire, “but everyone had so much fun, I think they are all coming back plus bringing their friends.”
The key to all this Mom Prom-Mania is simple: a great time for the ladies (note well that while ‘mom-ness’ is not required to attend, having estrogen certainly is) with great food and drink, a chance to dust off that old prom or bridesmaid outfit and compete in categories from “prom queen” to “tackiest” with dance contests, interestingly-themed raffle baskets (such as the “baby it’s cold outside”: complete with handmade afghan, hat and scarf set and socks, Isotoner gloves, a tin of Bentley Teas, Starbucks hot chocolate, books, a bottle of wine, coffee mug, candle and body lotion).
“We tried to keep the admission price affordable,” noted organizer Jan Perrotta, “so that as many ladies as possible can attend.”
It goes without saying that a great event needs to benefit a great cause and with the proceeds benefitting the Saratoga County Children’s Committee, several worthy organizations, such as the Center for the Family, EOC and Domestic Violence Services, will benefit.
So here’s a great idea, guys: think early Mothers Day present. Your mom (or maybe your children’s mom) will be so proud.
(Not to mention, you can go on that fishing trip with the guys and be guilt-free… but that’s just between us!)
