General Event Information

2nd Birthday Bash Sponsors

If you attended last year’s Birthday Bash, then you know that we like to make our birthday celebrations totally and completely over the top, and this year’s event will not disappoint!  For starters, our friends at The Zone are opening up almost their entire massive facility for us to explore, play, and have a whole lot of fun!  On the first floor, we will be transforming their open gym space into a birthday carnival – complete with games, activities, food, and more.  And on the second floor, we will have scheduled access to their inflatable room, complete with three exciting inflatables for the kiddos to have an absolute ball!!!

In addition, we are so thrilled to have NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care on board as our fantastic title sponsor for this event!  Not only do we love their compassionate and thorough after hours care for our little ones, we are also raving fans of their health care providers and staff too.  We cannot wait to introduce you to a few of them, so be sure to toss your child’s favorite stuffed animal, toy, or action figure into your bag before heading to this event because NightLight is going to have a fun-filled Teddy Bear Clinic as well as a few other surprises in store as well!  {And just for the parents, there will be some great goodies to grab at their area too!!}

 Charity of Choice

As with all of our major events, we are so very honored to be featuring and raising awareness for a special local charity at our 2nd Annual Birthday Bash!  This year we are working hand in hand with ESCAPE Family Resource Center whose mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing education, intervention, and support programs to families in crisis throughout the greater Houston area.  At our event, ESCAPE will have a fun-filled table with crafts for the kids and information for the adults, and we are asking all of YOU to rally around them and bring a few of these key items off of their current wish list too…

mobile file folders* :: copy paper {white and colored} :: construction paper {any color} :: craft supplies {foam shapes, beads, adhesive letters, pipe cleaners, etc.} :: writing materials for children {pens, pencils, crayons, markers} :: kid’s stickers :: pocket folders :: glitter glue :: nap mats :: plus, any old cell phones and small electronics you may have around the house as well!
* – denotes an urgent need

Not only does bringing a few items for this great local charity make a difference in our community, but we will be giving you additional giveaway tickets for your contributions too! Attendees who choose to participate will earn ONE additional giveaway ticket for each item that they bring – with a maximum of FIVE extra giveaway tickets total.  {Of course, you are welcome to bring as many donations as you would like; however, due to the nature of the event and the other opportunities to earn giveaway tickets, we are setting the cap at five.}

{Interested in getting YOUR business or brand’s name alongside all of the amazing sponsors you’ve seen above?  Contact Tiffanie, our sponsorship coordinator, for options on this event and future endeavors too!}

As always, the best way to share all of the fun and compliment the gracious sponsors involved is by utilizing social media!  Feel free to tag your posts and pictures and follow along using #HMBbdaybash too!!!

Please Note :: Tickets are non-refundable, and this event will happen rain or shine.  With advance notice, we will attempt to connect you with another family who is interested in purchasing your ticket should the need arise.  Swag and giveaway items are subject to change without notice due to sponsor availability, but please know that we will make every effort to fulfill the items listed above.  All attendees will be required to sign a waiver prior to entering into the event which will release and agree to hold harmless Houston Moms Blog and it’s event partners from any liabilities.  Also, by purchasing this ticket you understand that your photo or that of your child may be taken and give permission for Houston Moms Blog and their affiliates to use it on their site, in promotional materials, and/or on their social media platform.
