WANTED: FUN MOMS!
We are looking for a few fun moms to host the Moms and Margaritas Pay-to-Play Party! A Montclair institution, the Moms and Margaritas party is sold at our annual spring fundraising event (Otter Bash) and is a chance for MES moms to kick back and enjoy great company, delicious Mexican food and, of course, margaritas. We would hate for this fun tradition to end, so email if you are interested in hosting or co-hosting this event. And, the former hosts are happy to consult over margaritas!
