In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about Baby Basics’ program and the 600+ babies to whom diapers are provided each month.

One of the most important ways that Baby Basics raises funds is through the annual fashion show, where they feature the latest styles from local shops, offer special pop-up shopping, and celebrate the success of the program. This year they will also feature an auction to present the beautiful, custom artwork that was created especially for them by local artist, Emily James. The event will be emceed by Lois Thome of Wink News.

“Each and every year, the luncheon grows, and our message is spread in the community,” says Jean Ann Lynch, President, and Founder of Baby Basics. “We’re excited to have so many volunteers, models, partners, and sponsors with us again this year, we know it will be the best yet!”

Tickets are $200 per person for this fundraiser and seating is limited. Proceeds will help provide diapers for the babies of hard-working families in our community. Baby Basics’ 16th Annual Fashion Show will be held at an exclusive local country club from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, please visit
