Red Bank, NJ, April 17, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The Family Groove (TFG), The hippest parents' place in cyberspace, is shaking up the ‘hood: parenthood and our neighborhood alike. TFG will host its debut women’s only cocktail party, The Family Groove Spring Fling, on Tuesday, May 1st at Diney’s Place, Home of the Children’s Cultural Center, Red Bank, NJ from 7-9pm.
Inspired to take women behind the pages of their online magazine, TFG founders Jillian Swartz, Red Bank, and Amy Beth Sestito, Rumson, say: “The Family Groove is so much more than a magazine. With our hip tips, top trend reports, celebrity interviews, spotlight on moms from around the world, interactive blogs, weekly email blasts and live Amber Alerts, we foster a forum for all child rearers —a modern day coffee clutch in the Internet’s global village.” With a goal of helping parents find the harmony in their lives, Sestito and Swartz are bringing a live version of their site into the local communities, starting first with their hometown and then taking their unique wine, women and swag party on the road.
On Tuesday, May 1st, TFG will turn the coffee clutch into a spectacular experiential cocktail party featuring fashion, beauty, shopping, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, swag and more, offering moms a brief but much-needed respite from their child-weary lives. The Children’s Cultural Center will be transformed into an intimate lounge, styled by Motif of Red Bank, where women can mingle, share their stories, enjoy a night with friends and meet other hip women like themselves. As with the magazine, guests can expect to experience the hottest and coolest trends for women and children.
