About Our Christmas Bash
This is a great opportunity to have a fabulous night out. Come and enjoy a drink and meet other warm and welcoming creative mamas. There will also be special treats, giveaways and take home gifts.
This event will be a Q&A format with opportunities to ask Kerri your questions at the end.
LIVE PERFORMANCE: We are thirlled that very talented musician and singer Anikiko will be performing. Anikiko's music is all soulful poetry in motion. An accomplished pop singer-songwriter/dance she writes and produces with an edge that is sassy, soulful and sweet.
This is sure to be one very exciting and special experience, marking the final 2016 event for Mama Creatives in what has turned out to be an incredible year.
PARTNERS WELCOME: Since we will be discussing everything from relationships, marriage, divorce, life and death, we are inviting partners to come along too.
BRING A POSSE: A guaranteed night of fun, take advantage of our special Posse x 4 promotion and bring your mama friends. The more the merrier.
