Not that we need a reason to party, but our summer Mom’s Night Out at Perfect Pear Bistro in Tempe kicked off right around our birthday! East Valley Moms Blog turned two and as usual, there was food, fun and giveaways. The event was held at the Tempe Perfect Pear Bistro location at the Northeast corner of Ray and Priest in Tempe (9845 S. Priest Dr. Tempe, AZ 85284). Their second location in Ahwatukee is located at the Southwest corner of Chandler Blvd. and Desert Foothills Parkway (1241 E. Chandler Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 84048). The food is an eclectic mix of American pastas, salads and sandwiches with hints of Mediterranean influence. The preset menu for the party consisted of a choice of salad and entree as well as a beverage. Starters of hummus and veggies as well as the most incredible grilled cheese sandwiches were placed on the table to enjoy while waiting for food.
The sponsors for the evening were Team Orthodontics and Jungle Roots Children’s Dentistry. The team from both offices were there and both Dr. Ken Danyluk (Team Orthodontics) and Dr. John Culp (Jungle Roots) spoke with the guests in attendance about their practices. They also had a giveaway basket worth over $195 that included a $100 gift card to Dolce Salon and Spa and a teeth whitening kit.
Swag bags were given to our VIP guests and consisted of:
The Smitholator s’mores cookies were a huge hit and loved by all of us over here at EVMB! To get the word out about sponsors, we played a scavenger hunt on social media where guests had to take a picture with each giveaway item and swag bag item with the appropriate hash tags to win raffle tickets.
A huge thank you to Team Orthodontics and Jungle Roots for sponsoring as well as Perfect Pear Bistro for hosting. Also, a big shout out to our contributors that lended a helping hand (Courtney, Angela, Amber and Kari)! And thank you once again to Erin Hicks from E.L. Hicks Photography for being our amazing photographer! It takes an amazing and supportive team to help us pull off events like this and we are so lucky to have ladies that go “all in” with us!
