A Night Out for ME ~ 2017

What fun it was to be with the hundreds of wonderful moms who turned out for the 8th annual A Night Out for ME event on May 2nd! Marti & Erin loved chatting with so many of the moms, those who attend every year and the new friends they met.


Twelve-year-old Clara (Erin’s daughter and Marti’s granddaughter) attended for the first time and introduced Marti & Erin at the start of their educational and entertaining presentation on being a reflective mom and raising reflective children. Grandpa Ron (Marti’s husband and Erin’s dad) helped with video. Brett (Erin’s husband) was the photographer, and Sarah (Marti’s daughter-in-law) greeted guests at the registration table. So guests met many people from the Erickson family!


We are thankful for our event sponsors: Help Me Grow, Park Nicollet Women’s Center, Pediatric Home Service, St. David’s Center, U of M’s College of Education and Human Development & Way to Grow! Many moms were excited to win excellent prizes from our sponsors and also: Welcome Baby Care, Tumblewalla, doTERRA, Studio Time Out, Broadway Pizza, Prima, author Kate Hopper, author Julie Burton, author Sarah Aspinall & author Erika Christakis.

    We had such a wonderful time, again this year. Wanda & I also will discuss with our boss about being a donor of a prize for next year.

    Thanks to you both for sharing your expertise with us 🙂

    Cassandra, thank you so much for your comment! We love having you attend this event and would welcome you and your colleagues from Catholic Charities donating a prize to next year’s drawing if it works out. Erin and I appreciate the important work you do and are so glad that you follow Mom Enough and bring your good energy to our annual event!
