New Go-To Website For Parents Debuts in Lake County, IL.

New Go-To Website For Parents Debuts in Lake County, IL.

Wondering what to do with the kids this weekend?  Look no further.  Hulafrog, a national network of local community guides for parents, has launched its latest website for the Lake County - Libertyville area.  The site promises moms (and dads, too) a daily dose of the best local activities, destinations, deals and other resources for families.

Hulafrog answers many of the questions parents often ask each other such as “Where can I take my toddler today? What’s the best place for my daughter’s 6thbirthday party?   Which preschool has the best reviews? or What can my family do this weekend?”

Hulafrog was launched in 2010 by Sherry Lombardi and Kerry Bowbliss, two serial entrepreneur moms out of the NYC area, who desperately needed a better way to keep track of all there was for kids to do in their community.  Since then, local Hulafrog sites have been debuting across the country.  Each site is run by a mom (the publisher) as a part-time business from home and covers about a dozen towns within a 15-mile radius.

The Lake County – Libertyville site is one of 10 sites debuting a redesign and new platform for the Hulafrog, Inc.

The key to delivering a valuable resource to the community is being “current and comprehensive,” says publisher Allison Ponchak, a mom of two who runs Hulafrog out of her home in Libertyville, IL.  “Our site is brand new and already has hundreds of upcoming events and hundreds more businesses– from indoor play centers to kid-friendly restaurants to pediatricians – that matter to parents.” Hulafrog also has many interactive features that make it even better as time passes and locals use it.  All events and businesses can be loved by parents—or given a tip or comment. Subscribers get an “Our Pick” email alert with a heads up on key events for coming week and weekend, as well as some ideas for big upcoming events they won’t want to miss.

Business owners and event organizers can update their listings and post events to the site for free.

Parents can subscribe for free at  http://hulafrog.com/lake-county-libertyville-il/. And those that subscribe before June 21, 2014 will be entered to win a $1,000 Gap Kids Gift Card.
