Live anywhere in the NYC vicinity?  If you do, you should check out a great event that I’m helping to co-host this Saturday, May 22nd on Randall’s Island.

Sponsored by Hebrew National, May 22nd’s Better-Than-A-Picnic event is the kick-off to a national tour of picnics that will focus on giving back to the community by focusing on a charity activity while picnic attendees can eat yummy food, ride a mechanical bull, meet a surprise celeb guest and dance to a DJ! Kids are invited!

Here’s a list of the other Mom bloggers who are involved in this event:

Isabel, Alpha Mom
Jen, Next Kid Thing
Suzanne, Mom Confessionals

Amy, Selfish Mom
Anna, Mommy Poppins

Carol, NY City Mama
Amy P., Long Island Parent Source
Kimberly, Mom in the City
Lisa, New York Chica
Kelsey, Naptime Chef
Jo-Lynne, Musings of a Housewife
Melissa, GirlyMama
Cecily K, Uppercase Woman

It should be a great shin-dig!  I’m really excited to ride what I’m dubbing the Philly party bus up to Randall’s Island with some of my favorite Philly Mom bloggers.

Last year, Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife was the fabulous mastermind behind the organization of the 2009 Hebrew National Picnic with a Purpose here in Philadelphia.  It was an awesome event and I’m really looking forward to this year’s picnic up in New York.  If you live nearby at all, you should consider coming!  Visit theMotherhood’s Picnic with a Purpose page for more details or email me at whitney @ to RSVP.

There’s still room on the bus from Philly for anyone local who is interested.  Email me!

Disclosure: I am being compensated for helping to host this event.
