2014 Cupcake Meetup at #runDisney #WineDineHalf Weekend!

I am so excited to announce that, in partnership with DVC Central, the Cupcake Meetups are BACK!

Last year, I co-hosted this inaugural event at Disneyland to great success!

Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, 2013.
Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, 2013.

We had cupcakes, chatted, gave away a lot of really awesome prizes, and donated a lot of money to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – creating a WIN WIN WIN situation, if you ask me.

After the meetup, I sent out a survey for those who participated, asking what things people loved, as well as what things we could improve upon WHEN and IF another meetup was to be planned, and this is what we learned:

  • People LOVED the idea of MINI cupcakes – so will be doing a variety of MINIs again!
  • People found the registration fee to be very reasonable – so we are keeping that $20 price tag!
  • People LOVED helping out a charity – so we’re back to pitch in and raise money – this time, we’re fundraising for Noah’s Light Foundation, as part of our good friend Meredith’s drive to reach her GOOFY goal!
  • …and since we also received feedback that they’d LOVE a structured activity/icebreaker to amp up the fun quotient at the meetup, we’ll be hosting some yet-to-be-announced social fun!

Are you excited yet?

Cupcake2014This year’s Cupcake Meetup will be held on Saturday, November 8 (Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend) from 1 to 2 PM on the Boardwalk Lawn.

Registration is OPEN NOW and includes:

  • Entry to Cupcake Meetup
  • 3 mini cupcakes (+ water and a few healthy alternative snacks)
  • 1 raffle ticket for FABULOUS prizes ($300+ total cash value)
  • Donation to Noah’s Light (final amount will be at least 50% of registration fee – final amount determined by cost of food/materials – all prizes are donated, and event organizers make no profit)

I don’t know about you, but running + Disney + cupcakes…I really don’t think it can get any better than that!

I can’t wait to share EVEN MORE DETAILS (I will share more on the Outrunning the Monorail Facebook page – give us a LIKE if you haven’t yet because we’re giving away TWO FREE ENTRIES when we hit 500 likes!) as they are confirmed.

Sure hope to see you there!!
