Even in Oklahoma, not many people would use these three nouns in the same sentence. Then again, not many organizations are like Infant Crisis Services.
This organization doesn’t just talk about helping babies and toddlers… They live it! Last year, Infant Crisis Services provided help to over 14,000 babies and toddlers in Oklahoma City. From formula and diapers to shampoo and clothes, the organization works to provide temporary assistance to families in need. “We help them get back on their feet,” said Amy Spielberger, Public Relations Coordinator.
Of course, it takes money to provide these life-saving products to the kids, and what better way to raise money than to throw a party? Not just any party, mind you, but the 2012 Boots & Ball Gowns Gala!
This is the fourth year the annual event will be held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and includes an evening filled with dinner, drinks and dancing… Plus a very special guest: The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.
The organization has already sold 700 tickets to Saturday night’s event, but Amy says there are a handful of tickets still available. If you are interested in attending, call her right away: 405-778-7613. Or, click here to send her an email.
As a way to keep their cause on the attendee’s minds long after the event, Infant Crisis Services worked with ROBYN to create these clever branded toothpicks with their slogan, “No baby should go hungry.” What a fantastic way to reinforce their message!
If you can’t make the event this weekend, but would like to help, ask Amy about the Teen Associate Board’s auction at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club in April. Or, you can always swing by one of their three metro locations to drop off supplies.
