Your Mom Prom Checklist:
__ Fabulous Dress (or fabulously ridiculous)
__ Double-sided tape (We can neither confirm nor deny any wardrobe malfunctions in previous years, but suffice it to say, tape made the checklist.)

Now, let’s have a great time!!!
What started out as a cool idea at a book club in Omaha, has turned into an event to remember. This is our third year of organizing and planning the best girls night out event in Omaha.
We are so grateful for all of our partners who have donated to make this a wonderful night and we couldn’t do it without them.
But, there are some other people we need to thank too! The planning team.
This group of women has spent countless hours calling on businesses for donations, planning and preparing, and driving all over town to make this night happen. Be sure give them some love when you seen them on Saturday night!
My name is Joy. I am married to my wonderful hubby,Todd, and we have three awesome kiddos. I am a stay-at-home mom and also have my own business as an esthetician and makeup artist. I feel very fortunate to be able to work around my family’s schedule and still do what I love, which is to help women feel and look their best.
I first became involved with Mom Prom after hearing that it would benefit the Price family. I have known Amy Price for a few years and I have a daughter the same age as Livi. It was impossible to look at my own healthy daughter and not want to try to do something to help. I had already been researching ways to help, when the Mom Prom opportunity came along. I instantly loved the idea of moms getting a much needed night out with friends while still doing something good for the community. I was in!
I offered my assistance to help out in any way I could and am so glad I did, it was a blast and we were able to help a very deserving family.
I am honored to be included in this group of fantastic women who put on Mom Prom. The generosity and spirit of our attendees continues to inspire and motivate me and I am excited to see this event grow bigger and better every year!
My name is Sara Todd. I married my high school sweetheart in 2005.
We have two kids, Callie-5, and Tanner- who is almost 3, and another on the way!
I run an in-home daycare. I love reading, shopping, and spending time with my family and my great group of girlfriends!! I grew up on a farm in Dakota City, Nebraska and attended Homer Community School.
I came across the idea of Mom Prom and knew in my heart that Omaha would welcome such a fun event. So many other women jumped right in to help. I love meeting the women on that special night and raising money for families or organizations who need a little help in the process.
I got involved with Mom Prom because I love the idea of helping smaller organizations in the Omaha area. And, lets face it, I am a sucker for anything when dancing is involved.
I am married to Will and we have two children Carter(5) and Olivia(2). Before I had kids, I was an elementary school teacher, but now I stay home and try to manage our household. My kids keep me plenty busy but I also enjoy reading, sewing and repurposing furniture.
I love seeing how we improve/expand Mom Prom every year and can’t wait to see what happens this year.
Hi! My name is Jessica Hudson. I have been happily married to my husband, Graden, for eight years. I am a stay at home mom of three boys, Hunter (7) and Henry (4). and Harrison (3 months).
We are so excited to bring you a night filled with fun, friends, and dancing. In the midst of all the excitement surrounding the evening, we want to remember the reason we gather.
We aim to support the Nebraska SIDS Foundation.
Their mission: The Nebraska SIDS Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to increasing community awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and providing support for those impacted, so we may see a future where no parent loses a child to SIDS.
We feel privileged to work with the amazing group of people representing the foundation. In light of these amazing people, and the wonderful work they do for families across our state, we wanted to share with you their hearts on SIDS.
BRODY DAYNE PETERSEN 7/6/08-11/5/08, son of Angie Peterson, Co-Director Nebraska SIDS Foundation
Brody was a beautiful, content baby that was adored by his older brother Beau. He was healthy, placed on his back in a crib at daycare for nap, and never woke up. Our lives were forever changed on November 5th, 2008.
You always think it happens to others, not you. A part of me will always be missing and incomplete.
But I had two choices, to give up or to put one foot in front of the other and move forward. That’s how I became Co-Director of the Nebraska SIDS Foundation.
Being part of the foundation has been therapeutic for me, the perfect way to help others and honor Brody and his short life.
The Nebraska SIDS Foundation provides information, support, and networking to those impacted by SIDS, including donations to fund the most current SIDS research in hope of finding a cause.
My husband Tim and I are the parents of three boys, two on earth and one in heaven. Beau(7) and Drake(3) help keep Brody’s spirit alive!
Brayden Reece Skillings, son of Michelle Skillings, Co-Director Nebraska SIDS Foundation
Our second son, Brayden Reece Skillings was born on August 28th, 2008. We were so happy to welcome him to our family. His brother Noah loved helping take care of him. Whatever we needed for him, Noah tried to help. Brayden was very loved.
At just seven short weeks of life, Brayden became our little angel. He was taken from us to the faceless monster known as SIDS.
There isn’t a day that goes by we don’t miss him and think of what our family would be like had he not been taken from us.
At night, when the stars come out, we’ve taught our sons that it’s Brayden out checking on them and letting us know he’s here. We will always love and miss him!
Emma Jo Olsen, daughter of Zach Olsen, Nebraska SIDS Foundation board member,
Our precious Emma was born on December 9th 2010. She came out at 21.5″ long and 8lb 5oz. We spent 4 1/2 wonderful months with our daughter.
If you thought of a perfect baby that was full of smiles, laughter, and love.. Emma was that baby. She gave us so much joy and gave our lives so much purpose.
Sadly, her life was cut way too short to a horrible thing called SIDS. She passed away at daycare on April 25th 2011. She was perfectly healthy and the provider followed all of the correct best practices.
Emma is now watching over us and her little sister that just celebrated her 1st birthday. We think about our little Emma everyday and hope research and education about SIDS will prevent others from dealing with such a devastating loss.
Zach and Abby Olsen
We feel honored to contribute to the memory of these precious children and hope we can bring more awareness and donations to fight this terrible syndrome.
