Sarasota – Saturday, May 20, 2017:  

Calling all pregnant women, new moms, and their families! The 23rd Annual Sarasota Community Baby Shower is just around the corner!

On Saturday, May 20th from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., The Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County is partnering with the Kiwanis Club of Sarasota to present the 23rd Annual Sarasota Community Baby Shower. All local pregnant women and new families (with infants up to 1-year-old) are invited to this fun and FREE event, held at the Lee Wetherington Boys and Girls Club, 3100 Fruitville Road in Sarasota.

This event is held annually to provide education, support, and helpful gifts to pregnant women and new families.  Exhibitors from more than 30 local organizations will provide information and giveaways to attendees. Dozens of raffle and door prizes will be given away throughout the morning, including pack-and-plays, high-chairs, and strollers, donated by the Kiwanis Club of Sarasota.

Guests will enjoy healthy snacks and refreshments donated by Whole Foods Market, and a slow cooker demonstration provided by the Junior League of Sarasota’s Slow Cooker Initiative.  A baby-wearing fitness demonstration will be provided by Mama’s Got Groove, and Graceful Tides will be providing complimentary 5 minute chair massages for moms.

“The Community Baby Shower is a great way for pregnant women and new families to find out about all of the great local support available to them” said event organizer, Ciera Coleman. “It’s truly a one-stop shop for local resources, organizations, and businesses that can provide help to pregnant women and new families in our community.”

Activities will be available for children, including face-painting by Art and Body Sarasota, and a Kid’s Area sponsored by Children’s World of Sarasota. A “Diaper Derby” race will be held for crawling infants, with the winners receiving a case of diapers.
