TOPEKA — It’s high time for moms to be pampered. On May 9th West Ridge Mall is the place to be as Simon Property Group, Inc., the world’s leading retail real estate company, provides a free evening of relaxation and fun in honor of national Mom’s Nite Out™. West Ridge is one of 129 Simon properties to participate in this year’s event.
The presenting sponsor of Simon’s Mom’s Nite Out celebration this year is Rethink Varicose Veins. Locally, the event is brought to the Topeka community by St. Francis, with vendor sponsor Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
At West Ridge Mall, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an exciting evening filled with refreshments from Kitchen Collection, fashion shows featuring retailers such as Maurice’s and Dillards, beauty services from the cosmetic counters at Dillards, and valuable giveaways including bedding sets, professional photography packages, and a weekend stay at the Hyatt.
Local Mom’s Nite Out sponsor, St. Francis, will be giving away a new Kate Spade purse to one lucky Mom.
“Moms are so incredibly deserving of a night off,” said Jessica Kinsey, director of mall marketing and business development at West Ridge Mall, “And it is our privilege to be the venue where they come to enjoy it.”
Kinsey added that as an extra bonus, one lucky mom and her friend will have the chance to win a trip to Chicago to see Bon Jovi’s “Because We Can” tour at historic Soldier Field on Friday, July 12th.
Additionally, local sponsor St. Francis will give one lucky mom a new Kate Spade purse. Rethink Varicose Veins is an educational campaign encouraging the more than 30 million1,2 Americans who suffer from venous disease, including varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), to rethink their condition and recognize it as a serious health concern.
The campaign, led by a coalition of medical societies and sponsored by Covidien, encourages those with venous disease to learn more about their condition, find a vein specialist, and make informed decisions about the best, and often minimally-invasive treatment option for them. As part of the campaign, Olympic Gold Medalist Summer Sanders shares her personal story about the impact venous disease had on her life and the improvements she experienced following treatment.
The Rethink Varicose Veins team will be at Mom’s Nite Out dispelling the myths about varicose veins and encouraging attendees to take a quick self-assessment to determine their risk for varicose veins and CVI. Taking the self-assessment will automatically enter attendees for an opportunity to win a spa getaway weekend at the Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, Nov. 14-17, 2013.

Originally organized by Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media, author and Mom Talk Radio host, National Mom’s Nite Out unites social media groups, companies, local playgroups, mom bloggers and networks in giving moms a well-deserved night off. Bailey brought the first National Mom’s Nite Out to life after watching moms take care of everyone else on Mother’s Day, but never themselves.
“National Mom’s Nite Out is one of the largest cooperative efforts of Mommy groups, Mom-focused organizations and corporations, bloggers and vloggers – all coming together for one great night in support of motherhood,” Bailey said.
