We had an amazing turnout on Monday night for our 2nd annual Philly Social Media Moms Holiday Party. We teamed up with Cyber Monday Events for an evening full of delicious food, fab entertainment and sensational prizes from brands such as Baby Bjorn, Plan Toys, Rose Romano’s, Toy State, ASTRA, Urban Sitter, GMH Mortgage and many more!

Our Host, Dave & Buster’s

Dave & Buster’s in Plymouth Meeting generously hosted our event and provided some food samplings. The nacho bar was a hit.

Their meeting room is a fantastic place for holiday parties and gatherings. It is spacious and elegant, and their servers were all incredibly friendly and accomodating.

Fabulous Food & Drink

Whole Foods came with a sampling of their gourmet cheeses — which were delectable. They plated a sampling for each of us and explained some of what they have to offer their customers. It is truly a gourmet cheese shop within a larger retail store — so convenient!

Wine Sisterhood provided wine for the evening. We love their sassy titles. With names like Middle Sister, Promiscuous and Monogamy, how could they be anything but delicious!?

We were also treated to a sneak peek of a new movie being released this fall, The Heart of Christmas.

Charity Partner | Cradles to Crayons

Part of the purpose of Philly Social Media Moms is to use our social media influence for good in the community. Attendees brought generous donations to support Cradles to Crayons, a local organization that provides children living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive.

We are thrilled to say that we were able to fill Sarah Peppel‘s Suburban until it was brimming with new and gently used toys and books and clothing, which we delivered to C2C on our way home from the event.
