Click on the thumbnails below to see photos of The 16th Annual Community Baby Shower, Saturday February 20 at the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota County. Pregnant women, new moms, and their families were invited for a free community baby shower, featuring educational exhibits from local health organizations and fun for the whole family!
Families were given free gifts through a raffle sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Sarasota and the exhibitors, and children enjoyed games and face-painting by the Sarasota High School Key Club. Guests munched on snacks provided by the Kiwanis Club, and drank delicious smoothies donated by Sunni Bunni Frozen Yogurt. The highlight of the day was the Diaper Derby, MC-ed by Vice-Mayor and Healthy Start Executive Board Member, Kelly Kirschner, where crawling infants raced across the finish line to win a month’s supply of diapers!
Check back soon for pictures from the Maternity Fashion Show and make-over!
