On Wednesday, October 28, over 300 people gathered together at CRIT USA for Alamo City Moms Blog’s 3rd Annual Moms’ Night Out Event, Mummies’ Night Out: Leave Your Little Monsters at Home. Co-sponsored by University Health System and Vital Life Wellness Center, this event turned out to be our most fun yet!
Our attendees went all out with their costumes, and we were so impressed! Moms came ready to enjoy the night. They talked, laughed, ate, enjoyed, and then danced the night away, and we were thrilled to hear such great reviews!
University Health System not only provided each of our attendees with reusable shopping bags to “Trick or Treat” for swag from our vendors, but they informed San Antonio women about health concerns that we should be aware of and the incredible women’s health services University Health System provides.
Vital Life Wellness Center had staff on hand to teach attendees about their different services. Because Vital Life Wellness Center focuses on preventative medicine, they gave tips on how to start with a healthy foundation and talked about the variety of services they offer, including Family Medicine, Brain Wellness, Allergy Services, and more.
Mummies’ Night Out attendees had the chance to tour the incredible facilities of CRIT USA, a children’s rehabilitation institute for children with neuromusculoskeletal disorders right here in San Antonio. The leading private pediatric rehabilitative healthcare provider in the world, CRIT is funded by TeletonUSA and allows families amazing rehabilitation services at very low costs. Mummies’ Night Out attendees were able to participate in fundraising for CRIT USA and families who receive their services through their piggy bank fundraiser. Piggy banks are still available for all ACMB readers and can be collected at CRIT USA.
CRIT USA was transformed into a Halloween extravaganza by our partner and decoration provider, Spirit Halloween! We partnered with a number of local businesses, organizations, and schools that made their interaction and entertainment with attendees over-the-top fun! A special thank you to our Snow White and Evil Queen, the impressive ladies in costume from Time Out Sitters, as well as BASIS North San Antonio and BASIS San Antonio, DELIish, Love to Swim and Tumble School, You’ve Got MAIDS, San Antonio Zoo, Happy Family Organics Foods, School of Rock, and San Antonio Shoemakers, who were there to mix and mingle with our attendees. Entertainment, activities, and additional perks were provided by Crafthouse SA, Caswell Designs Face Painting, Waxing The City Stone Oak, Massage Heights Deerfield Crossing, and MBP Photobooth Co.

The spread was pretty sweet, and moms were able to fill their bellies on the assorted deliciousness.
The party really got bumping when party DJ Elite Entertainment turned up the music and the moms hit the dance floor!
Big kudos to the winners of our costume contest: Frankenstein’s Bride, the Magical Unicorn, and the Sister Wives!
