During the first part of the program, the founder of Pinay Mommies Community, Ruby Ricafrente made a short talk and shared us about the history of PMC. Mommies from different parts of the world, Canada, US and Germany attended the event. Other mommies traveled a hundred miles away just to meet other mommies whom we talk online, from Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod, Bicol and Rizal.
Mommy Rubz also shared us the vision and mission of the PMC and PRmoms was officially launched that day.
Photos below were evidently the fun filled moment we shared during the event. Pardon for the quality of the photos. I was confined in my seat and couldn't make a perfect angle because the venue was crowded. During the conducted ocular visit, we assessed that the venue could accommodate enough for the 50 mommies and other guests. The room became so crowded not because of the attendees but because of the big blessings that poured in from our generous sponsors. Imagine the eight loot bags for each mommies plus other raffle items.
PMC would like to thank the following sponsors who graciously gave away products for each of the mommies who attended the event.
Each mom got a loot bag from Unilab, aside from the raffle prizes they sent us. Loot bags include Ibuprofen Dolan, 500 ml of Ascorbic Acid Ceelin, a tumbler, Multivitamins Enervon, Rashfree for diaper rash and Loperamide Diatabs.
Each mom received products from Smart Steps such as Smart Steps Baby Fabric Conditioner, Smart Steps Baby Bottle Cleanser, Smart Steps Baby Laundry Detergent, Holy Seat Disposable toilet seat cover and Holy Seat hand spray toilet seat sanitizer. Aside from that, they gave more items for raffle.
Umami products that include Ajinomoto Umami Seasoning, Crispy Fry breading mix, SoQuick Marinade Mix, Aji-Sho seasoning mix (garlic and pepper), Fres-C concentrated drink mix, Tasty Boy all purpose breading mix, Ajinomoto Sinigang sa Sampalok, Ajinomoto Ginisa Flavor Mix and Pal Sweet Calorie Free Sweetener.
Procter and Gamble gave each mom a pack of Ariel Stain Lift with deep cleaning technology and Pampers Active Baby.
Krispy Kreme and Shirt from Geiser Mclang
As soon as I reached home after the event, I quickly took a photo of Krispy Kreme because I already called home while I was at the event and told them that I have a box of Krispy Kreme for them. Guess what? After a few minutes, donuts were all gone. I'm glad, I've done my photo op before they even started to eat them.
Avon also gave away gift packs that include Skin so Soft lotion, Avon Advance Techniques straight and sleek hair product, Avon Ultra Color Rich white gold lipstick, Avon Super Curlacious Mascara. Drypers Drypers also gave gift packs such as Drypers Weewee Dry Diapers, Libresse products and 1000 PhP McDo GC. Other sponsors like Richwell gave away some toys such as Barbie and Hotwheels. Grendha also gave away raffled items for the events. Goldquest Biotechnologies sent a gift in form of cash but PMC used the said amount for other expenses.
I can't help but call for a taxi cab to bring me home with these stuffs. I earlier planned to take a railway train but with all the badges I got, it was impossible for me to get the train ride going home.
Imagine the happiness in the eyes of my tweens seeing these exchanged tokens from other moms. Oh these cute stuffs are too pretty to keep.
Other raffle items came from mommies like Walis Tambo all the way from Baguio and other kitchen products from Levy and items from World of Wellness.
The photo above was featured in the local newspaper, People's Tonight and People's Journal. Just can't help but blog about it. I am a proud member of PMC!
Of course, the event wouldn't be complete without the photo booth sponsored by Krazy Pix Photobooth. Please visit the website for any inquiries about photobooth for any occasions like weddings, birthdays, baptismal parties, reunions, anniversaries, product launchings and corporate events.
I have enough words and photos here but I haven't done yet with my post. I'll post another story or a part 2 of this event about the detailed story, the laughter, mommy talks and everything we shared during the event. Special thanks to the event committee and to admins, Mommy Pehpot and Mommy Rubz for making this event possible.
