Citibabes, a modern family membership club dedicated to providing a nurturing and dynamic environment for children and families, is hosting their annual Hamptons Family Fun Day on Saturday, July 19, 2014. The family-friendly fun filled day of entertainment and activities will take place at The Country Day School (7 Industrial Road, Wainscott). A hot spot in the Hamptons for youngsters and their parents, attendees will enjoy music, shopping from premiere brands, light bites and refreshments.
The first 100 guests will receive exclusive gift bags with items from Babyganics, Diptyque, C Wonder, Aden & Anais, Green Mustache and PediPed! The afternoon will feature a group of retailers including Kirna Zabete, The Styleliner, STATE bags, Sunuva and Wolffer Estate wines.
“This will absolutely be our best year yet,” Citibabes VP of Operations, Kim Proal, said. “We have rented the ideal space in Wainscott and have an incredible group of retailers joining us, as well as the perfect line up of activities for children.”
Both Proal and Citibabes’ CEO and Co-Founder Tracey Frost are dedicated to providing parents with the best resources possible and are constantly looking for ways to make those resources even better. “Citibabes philosophy will never change,” Proal said. “We are the ultimate resource for the modern parent and provide all families with a nurturing community.”
Frost, an Australian born businesswoman, founded the business 9 years ago after finding that the market was “begging for a community place that could provide something for the whole family.” An entrepreneur by heart, Frost describes her work at Citibabes as challenging, rewarding and something that she absolutely loves to do.
For the Citibabes CEO and Co-Founder, Sagaponack is one of her favorite Long Island getaway spots. “I just love to go running around the streets past the farms and by the ocean,” Frost said of the town. When in the Hamptons, she also loves to go out to Crows Nest in Montauk and to spend the day relaxing at Gibson beach in Sagaponack with her husband Filip Rensky and their two daughters Natasha and Chloe.
Proal also enjoys the summer scene in the Hamptons, spending her days taking SoulCycle classes in East Hampton, taking in the East End sunset, and enjoying live music at Surf Lodge. Even when she’s not working, Proal is dedicated to helping children, and has volunteered in Ethiopia and India – her next stop is Cochabamba, Bolivia.
In the near future, Proal and Frost plan to expand Citibabes to places throughout New York City and beyond. Frost also shared that as more research on childhood development and modern parenting is conducted they, “Adapt to the findings and create better and more effective classes for our children to learn and become more creative and confident children.”
The duo also noted they are working towards developing Citibabes amenity spaces in places like hotels and apartment buildings. “We are constantly making sure we are ahead of the curve, especially in our children’s education offerings, and I expect our top-notch curriculum to always evolve,” Proal said.
The Citibabes Hamptons Family Fun Day and Trunk Show will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 19, 2014.
