A big, big thank you to all of those who showed their support to MiV by buying a raffle ticket!  In the end we sold just shy of 80 tickets. You all are awesome!

There is also no way that we could have done this without the support, care and donations of our raffle sponsors… so THANK YOU for supporting us!  I encourage all of the MiV members to support the businesses that support this organization. There are so many awesome things to discover here in Switzerland. What wildly creative, talented and savvy businesses we have!

Announcing the Start of the First MiV Raffle

Want to support Moms-in-Vaud?  Here’s your chance! You may just win one of our fabulous prize packages.

Many of us use MiV on a daily basis for everything from selling our things and asking parenting questions, to meeting new people and finding out what to do on a rainy day. In order to support the daily operations of MiV so we can all continue to benefit, we asked local businesses and MiV sponsors to donate their good and services, and they did not let us down! We received so many generous donations that we’re raffling off not one, but THREE fantastic prize packages, including a private yoga lesson from GatherYoga, a cooking class from Safran Cuisine, fitness classes from SHEzone, cakes from Patachou, a voucher from Playball, beauty treatments from U-Rang-A-Tan, baby food from Goodness Gracious, and much much more!

You can do your part to support MiV and get in on a chance to win by buying raffle tickets, which will be on sale for the next month.

The raffle drawing will be held on Wednesday, 25 July 2012 at the La Barcarolle Beach Bar in Prangins during the next Mom’s Night Out. (You need not be present to win).

The cost is 20chf for 1, or 55chf for 3.

Proceeds from the raffle will be used not only to support the day-to-day operations of MiV, but also will be used to subsidize exclusive MiV events that are already in the works, like a wine tasting and soiree at a local vineyard in September!
