Attendees will be the first to preview Evereve’s Spring 2017 line. Improv comedy group, Theater off the Cuff will entertain and food will be prepared by Footers Catering. Proceeds from the fashion event will go directly to support teen moms, military moms, and other moms-in need.

“Focusing on inner beauty and celebrating the tremendous journey of motherhood, Darling! is a can’t miss night out.” Comments Kristen Hallinan, MOPS Director of Development. “Cheering on moms as they model fashionable clothes selected with moms in mind, taking photos in a vintage VW Shutterbus, enjoying the delicious food, and seeing the reveal of the third annual high fashion dress that’s made entirely of The MOPS Magazine are just some of the highlights of this growing event.”
