Mother’s Day VIP event

NORTH LITTLE ROCK  – The North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (NLR CVB) will host a special Mother’s Day VIP Reception at 3 p.m., on Sunday, May 8, in conjunction with Ballet Arkansas’s free Live at the Plaza performance at Argenta Plaza at 510 Main Street in North Little Rock.

“Our hope is to provide a memorable experience for families this Mother’s Day while supporting local,” said Heather Kouns, NLR CVB Director of Destination Projects.

The family-friendly Mother’s Day VIP Reception includes access to a shaded VIP area, a picnic basket of Arkansas treats and two drink tickets during the free Ballet Arkansas performance. Made for two, each basket will feature Arkansas-made goodies from Hodge Podge (North Little Rock), Hoggs Meat Market (North Little Rock), The Filling Station (North Little Rock), Dogwood Hills Guest Farm (Harriet) and DolceLuna Bakery (Little Rock). Tickets are $75 and available through Eventbrite.

“The Mother’s Day VIP Reception is the second event of 2022 in North Little Rock’s Setting the Table Culinary Initiative,” Kouns said. “We want to not only highlight Arkansas makers and producers, but also give back to the community. Ten percent of ticket sales will benefit NLR nonprofit Potluck Food Rescue for Arkansas, which distributes healthy food to nonprofit community food programs.”Ballet Arkansas Presents Live at the Plaza is two weekends of free performances and recreational classes led by Ballet Arkansas at Argenta Plaza at 510 Main Street in North Little Rock.
