July Newsletter


Welcome July and Happy Fourth! We could've sworn January was just yesterday. Regardless of the fact that this year is flying by, there are many things to love about July. We get to celebrate our Independence, it's the peak of Summer (break out those Hawaiian shirts and sandals), grade school is out, and it's a month FULL of some of the best Simply Events.

Back to School Bashes

The Simply Events Back to School Bashes begin this month, and although we're at the peak of Summer fun, it doesn't hurt to start preparing for the 19-20 school season. Each Back to School Bash will have plenty of school resources, after-school programs, and free school supplies, as well as, educational activities, performances, an interactive scavenger hunt, a Sensory Room, and more.
Sensory Room
Simply Events' Full Inclusion Back to School Bashes are designed to cater to neuro-typical and neuro-diverse children and their families. Each year we try to do more to include the special needs community. With this in mind, we are proud to announce the addition of a Quiet Time Sensory Room at the Full Inclusion Back to School Bash.
These rooms are a quiet space where parents can take their neuro-diverse children for a moment to clear their minds. Each room will be overseen by trained professionals and will include a few simple sensory toys and soft lighting. The addition of the Quiet Time Sensory Room makes the Simply Events' Back to School Bashes a true Full Inclusion event where all families can seek needed school resources and community outreach.
If you would like to RSVP your children for the Sensory Room at one of the 5 locations, click the link below.

Summer Bradenton Shabby Chic Market

It's almost Shabby Chic season!
It's been a minute since our last Shabby Chic Market, and we're eagerly awaiting our Summer market in one of our favorite locations. We'll be returning to the beachy community of Bradenton on August 11th, and we'll be taking over the Bradenton Area Convention Center with 100+ local makers and artisans. Shop from furniture, home decor, jewelry, boutique clothing, all while supporting local businesses.

Last Month's Events

Last month might have been a slow month, but it was still an incredible one. We had an All About Women Expo at Westfield Sarasota Square Mall at the beginning of the month, and we closed out the month with a BOOM, at Zephyrhills SummerFest.
We want to thank the sponsors of SummerFest: National Aviation Academy, Morgan Exteriors, and the City of Zephyrhills. With their help, we were able to make SummerFest's firework show the LARGEST in all of Zephyrhills, and of course, we want to thank all of you for attending and supporting our events.
Thank you for your time. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events! Have a safe and happy Independence Day!
