This Valentine’s day, enjoy a celebration of self- love. We are turning Valentine's Day around for single women. Instead of sitting at home, head out to "Love Your Life" and CELEBRATE YOURSELF! Grab a friend, or bring your children, and join us for a Valentine's evening like no other!

When you look good, you feel good, so get dressed up and take a walk down our red carpet to our portrait wall, where you and your children or girlfriends will have free photos taken. The children will then join our team of volunteers for their own fun (and pizza!), while the ladies head down to the beautiful terrace room for a delicious dinner.

Single Mom Strong's Founder, Tara Taylor, will kick off the evening with a special champagne toast.  Then we will feast on a beautiful dinner catered by Polka Dot Dinners, a "Sacramento A-list" winner, four years in a row! During dinner, we will be inspired by two incredible female speakers. After dinner, we will enjoy dessert, and a special surprise!

Proceeds benefit Single Mom Strong. However, this event is open to ALL women- not just single moms!
