Moms work hard. Raising kids is freaking tough. In fact:

83% of Americans believe being a Mom is the toughest job in America. (I agree!)

…and nearly 2 out of 5 moms surveyed had not been out on a “mom’s night out” in the last year. (sad!)

StubHub, an online market where fans can buy and sell tickets, launched a national program called Mom’s Night Out to encourage moms to take a night off with their friends… and they are donating a portion of proceeds from all ticket sales to those Mom’s Night Out events to Adopt-A-Classroom, a nonprofit organization supporting teachers and students.

The Minneapolis Momโ€™s Night Out is this weekend’s July 23 U2 concert. So if you need a night out and were wishing you could get tickets to the concert, you can find some on stubhub.com and part of your purchase will go to Adopt-a-Classroom.

Mom’s Night Out Special Giveaway

The folks at StubHub asked me to co-host the Minneapolis Mom’s Night Out… which is cool, because I like hosting things. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also love live music… as you’ve heard go on and on about this summer.

THREE lucky Marketing Mama readers will be randomly chosen to be a part of the Mom’s Night Out VIP experience, which includes:
– You and a guest will attend a VIP dinner at the Minneapolis Hard Rock Cafe with me and other winners. Drinks and dinner will be provided.
– Transportation from the restaurant to the U2 concert.
– Two tickets to the U2 concert.
– Transportation back to the Hard Rock Cafรฉ following the concert.

How to enter

1. To enter, leave a comment with your name and e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.

2. You may have up to three additional entries, for a total of 4 entries per person. Please leave a comment for each entry alerting me to what you did. This helps me choose the winners at random by number of comments.

  • becoming a fan of Marketing Mama on Facebook
  • clicking the Facebook “like” button on the bottom of this post to share it with your Facebook friends
  • following me on twitter at @marketingmama and tweeting about the contest with my name & a link to this post.

Example tweet: Hey #minnesota mamas, win a Moms Night Out to see U2 Saturday with @marketingmama & @Stubhub http://ow.ly/5GGGU

3. Contest closes Tuesday evening (7/19) at midnight.

4. Winners will be chosen at random and e-mailed Wednesday morning. Winners must respond to the e-mail within 4 hours to claim the tickets or I will choose another winner.

FINE PRINT: Although most of my contests are open to everyone, this one is specific to moms. The person ultimately attending the concert and her friend should both be moms, staying in the spirit of “moms night out.” They should also be Minnesota residents or planning to travel here for the weekend. Don’t worry, I’ll be hosting more contests in the near future that are open to everyone. This giveaway is sponsored by StubHub. I was not paid to write this post, however as a co-host of the Mom’s Night Out in Minneapolis, StubHub is giving me complimentary tickets to the concert and the VIP dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.

ok… go!

      I do enjoy the way you have framed this paalicutrr matter plus it really does give us a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of what I have seen, I basically hope as the actual commentary stack on that folks keep on issue and not start upon a tirade involving the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this excellent point and while I can not really agree with the idea in totality, I value the standpoint.
