On June 23rd, we had the opportunity to work with one of our returning sponsors, Connecticare, to host a baby shower for 40 military moms and moms-to-be. We had a great day with these amazing women and their families. A combination of wonderful sponsors, donors and moms made for the perfect “Oh, Baby!” themed shower!
The 40 military moms who joined us at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut were a truly special group of women. A number of them had just recently had their babies, so lots of adorable newborns were in attendance!
Many of the moms at this particular shower have partners currently deployed on submarines. Submarine deployments can be especially difficult for military families. The men and women in these units often spend long periods time preparing away from home even before they officially deploy, and the moms have very little contact with their partners while they’re away.
We were so honored to celebrate with these strong women, whose attitudes were sunny despite their challenges.
We worked with a number of awesome sponsors and supporters to make this day a happy one for the moms. Among these groups were Connecticare, the Mahan Foundation, and Travelers Insurance. We received the additional support of Birdies for the Brave, the Travelers Championship and catering from Applebee’s. As always, we owe so much to the sponsors and supporters who helped make the Oh, Baby! shower happen.
We also owe our thanks to Tania Fischer for her work on the graphic designs for the shower—she created a beautiful starting point for the entire shower. It was a lovely time for the moms to come together and celebrate over food, fun and (of course) tons of gifts from our generous donors.
