When our New York community manager Nancy Deane asked if we’re down to have a birthday party celebrating 4 years of HEYMAMA, all signs pointed to yes. You know we love a good party. Plus, in the everyday hustle, sometimes we need a break to stop and appreciate the magic around us. In this community, there’s plenty. Ready to celebrate, we headed down to the Dagne Dover pop-up in Soho for a night to remember.
With event design by Laura Remmert, the backdrop was perfect. Mamas sipped on wine provided by Winc while enjoying bites from Murray’s Cheese courtesy of Caviar and “mookies” by Dana’s Bakery. What’s a mookie? It’s a delicious muffin/cookie hybrid and the new favorite treat of every mama who tried one. After a few words of appreciation from HEYMAMA co-founders Katya and Amri—and from Katya’s 7 year old daughter Lili—dancers from Z Artists Group performed to Nicki Minaj and David Guetta’s Hey Mama.
Team HEYMAMA and the iFundWomen team were on hand to spread the word about our MILF(und) campaign. After four successful years bootstrapping HEYMAMA into an amazing resource for mamas in business, we’re accepting outside capital for the first time. Our crowdfunding campaign with iFundWomen will allow us to build out an intuitive platform that makes it event easier for our community members to connect. We’ll also be able to grow into new core cities.
Support our iFundWomen campaign and buy your own MILF(und) tee here! There are new rewards added each week, including a HEYMAMA necklace and mentoring sessions from some of our favorite mama bosses.
Thank you to all of the mamas who came out to celebrate with us, and to all of the mamas in this community! The past four years have been more than we could have imagined on our own. You’re what makes this community what it is. On to the next four years and beyond!
