With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's high time for moms to be pampered.
On May 9, South Hills Village Mall will host a free event featuring relaxation and fun in honor of national "Mom's Nite Out," sponsored locally by Pittsburgh Magazine.
Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments, entertainment and fashion and beauty services and will find information on mom-friendly organizations and events, all focused on rewarding mothers.
The event will kick off at 5 p.m. in the mall's lower level north wing and will last until 8 p.m.
Moms are also invited to enjoy food samples provided by Bethel Bakery and Giant Eagle Market District. For football fans, new Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Bruce Gradkowski is scheduled to appear in front of the mall's Steelers Sideline Store from 6 to 7 p.m.
There will also be a special "Mommy Lounge" at the mall that will include comfortable seating from LoveSac, groovy music and information about popular Pittsburgh-area attractions.
Attendees will have the opportunity to win door prizes throughout the night, including specialty gift baskets. In addition, the first 300 moms in attendance will receive a Mom's Nite Out swag bag filled with goodies from participating stores and local businesses.
"Moms are so incredibly deserving of a night off," said Jennifer Carroll, director of marketing at South Hills Village. "It is our privilege to be the venue where they come to enjoy it."
