{EVENT RECAP}: 2nd Annual Moms Night Out at Bass Farms

A big thank you to all of our attendees who joined us for our Moms Night Out event at Bass Farms in Mount Vernon with our presenting sponsor Murray, Wilson, and Rose Counseling, and all of our other wonderful sponsors. Filled with conversations, connections, pumpkin patch fun, and tasty food, it was a beautiful night at the farm with over 100 attendees, drinking cocktails and mocktails courtesy of Bass Farms and Peach Mobile Cart Co., shopping with local vendors, and making s’mores from CHOMP delivery!

Thank you to Bass Farms for hosting the event. They also provided amazing appetizers, drinks, and built us a glowing campfire that provided warmth, light, and was perfect for making s’mores!

Our S’Mores Sponsor
