On Valentine’s day, enjoy a celebration of self- love...

This Valentine’s Day, LOVE YOUR LIFE! We are removing loneliness and commercialism from the holiday, and focusing on the most important kind of love: self-love. Don't sit at home, 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. Then, bid on self-care items in our raffle. Next, the children will join our Childcare team for their own fun (and kid-friendly dinner), while you'll enjoy a delicious catered dinner.  During dinner, you will be inspired by powerful female speakers and connect with other local single moms. Enjoy some fantastic dinner conversation before reconnecting with your little one(s) at the end of the night for dessert and a special surprise!
