MNO Fremont: Prom Through the Decades

Alright ladies! We KNOW you’re ready to relive your prom or maybe you never attended yours and you’d like to have that experience! Looking back, you might not have had the opportunity to pick out that stylish prom dress or perhaps you regret your style-choice (haha!)? Maybe you loved your dress and want to replicate what you wore? Before you whip out that old prom dress, hit up the thrift store searching for an old gem, or hit the mall looking for a more modern look, we thought we’d take you on a journey to the past and bring you to the current times by taking a look at prom dresses through the decades! Taking it back to the 1960s….       Far Out Times of the 1970s…       Wiggin’ Out in the 1980s…       1990s Were Da Bomb…            Drop[…]

Supporting MNO Fremont

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season over and the start of a New Year, it’s a perfect time to reflect.  Seven years ago we were spending our holidays in the hospital with Aaden, our last holiday season with him.  I remember we were lucky enough to go home for a little bit, where he was able to go trick-or-treating for Halloween, but we spent Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even rang in 2011 from the PICU.  It didn’t matter where we were, or that we couldn’t partake in a holiday feast.  What mattered most, is that we were together and we did our best to make most of our togetherness, even when in a hospital room.  We knew then how much we relied on the kindness of strangers during a time we couldn’t be at home celebrating and even the slightest thoughtful gesture meant the world to us.[…]

Sheila Dizon as MNO Fremont’s Design Lead- featuring Event Solutions

For the second year in a row the MNO Fremont team has the pleasure of announcing Sheila Dizon, founder of Event Solutions, as our Design Lead! In 2017, Sheila dazzled us with her vision of a night bringing us back to the Roaring 1920s and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table in 2018 at Mama’s Night Out Fremont’s Class of 2018 Gold, Glitter and Glam Prom! Imagine glam, glitz, your best gal pals, adult beverages, dancing and your PROM DRESS!  Why does Sheila sponsor and volunteer for Mama’s Night Out Fremont and Unravel? “Love is why I joined Unravel Pediatric Cancer. It is my personal mission to help children with or without disabilities. I am not a parent, but I am an Aunt, a Godmother, and a friend to these children and their families. Unravel Pediatric Cancer brings awareness that cancer amongst kids is serious[…]

MNO Fremont Gives Thanks…

As Thanksgiving approaches, the Mama’s Night Out (MNO) Fremont 2018 team wanted to take this time to reflect on the incredible support this community has provided to help “Unravel” pediatric cancer. Without the support of our volunteers, community members, sponsors, donors, attendees and vendors this event would not be possible. At MNO Fremont 2017, the joint efforts of all the above parties helped raise a whopping $81,000 that went directly to fund research and to families currently being affected by the beast called pediatric cancer and at our 2018 event we hope to surpass last year’s total!  THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS 2018 SPONSORS…  Platinum: Event Solutions (our event planner and Design Lead) Washington Hospital Health Services Amity Home Health Bay Aerials Gold: Sugar and Ice Master Metal Products Silver: Hyman Stauffer Family Fremont Elks Lodge Mack McKayla ‘N’ Me Photography (our “night of” photographer) PhotoBom (our photo booth for the[…]

Introducing the 2018 MNO Fremont Team!

Each Mama’s Night Out (MNO) event is thoughtfully planned over the course of a year by a dedicated team of volunteers. These women devote their time and services to Unravel and MNO Fremont because they are passionate about the cause and believe deeply in the fight against pediatric cancer. We have all made the conscious decision to not just be sorry, but to be active! It is with great pleasure that I introduce you all to to the Mama’s Night Out Fremont 2018 team… Melissa Davidson-Reyes: Co-Chair I am often asked about why I fight so hard. Why I am so involved. Over the years, my answer has remained the same… Because although I may not be a cancer mom, I know that I am one of the lucky ones… Because I am a Mother and an Aunt and a Godmother…. Because today 36 parents will be told their child has cancer.[…]

MNO Livermore 2017- Guest Speaker and Lab Info

Mama’s Night Out Livermore 2017 is proudly funding: Jim Olson, MD, PhD and his team at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center http://research.fhcrc.org/olson/en.html Dr. Olson and his team have developed a new technology called optides to direct cancer-killing drugs specifically to cancer cells while ignoring the healthy cells around them. This should result in decreased toxicity and side effects for patients. Dr. Olson’s team has also developed Tumor Paint, molecules that seek out, stick to, and illuminate tumor cells — making them far easier to remove while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue Guest Speaker: Jaime King, Katherine the Brave’s Mother www.KatherineTheBrave.com 6 year old Katherine, the baby in our family, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on June 2nd, 2015.
