National press about the Vend Raleigh Directory and Illuminate sponsorship deadlines and day of child care options!

Introducing our Gold Sponsors of Illuminate 2013.....  
(More Gold Sponsors being added weekly.)
Illuminate is for all business-minded moms! No matter where you are in your business, haven't started, just started or been at it for years, Illuminate will help take you to the next step! Illuminate will not only give you a ton of business know how, but it will help you create a community of Mompreneurs to grow with!

"I can't imagine being a Raleigh area mompreneur and not participating in Illuminate!" Cary Heise, founder of Vend Raleigh 
Looking for child care for September 13th to be able to attend Illuminate?  
We are partnering with two drop off child care centers!

S’Kids Drop-in Childcare 
Conveniently located, just 3 miles from the Holly Springs Cultural Center, S'Kids is opening at 7:45am to make the drop off transition as easy and are waiving the registration fee for Illuminate Attendees.  RSVP required and have your paperwork done ahead of time.  
Ages 12 mos to 12y ears. Lunch will be served at 12noon (pizza and juice box) can be purchased for $4 or send in lunch (peanut free and no heating required).

5160 Sunset Lake Road, Suite 111, Apex


For Cary moms, Giggles will open early at 8am. Register online in order to save time with all the paperwork that morning. They are offering 2 hours free for those who register online and will offer that to those who use us that morning.  
Harrison Point Shopping Center at 267 Grand Heights Drive Cary

*Vend Raleigh is not responsible for child care. Each parent is in contract with the child care center they choose, and solely them.
