JPMA Cares to Host 2nd Annual Benefit for Babies December 1

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Oct. 11, 2022 — JPMA Cares will host the 2nd annual Benefit for Babies on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. ET at SPIN New York 54, 7 East 54th Street, New York, NY 10022. Those interested in advancing the health and safety of babies and young children are invited to attend, including manufacturers and retailers of baby and children’s products.

The JPMA Cares Benefit for Babies is all about coming together to have a good time while advancing the foundation’s mission, which is to contribute to the long-term success of babies and young children by reducing barriers to healthy development, ensuring fundamental needs are met, and promoting a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow.

“JPMA Cares works to improve outcomes for all children and is intentional about meeting the needs of babies and young children,” said Executive Director of JPMA and JPMA Cares Lisa Trofe. “For some, the need is products or education, but for others, fundamental needs like housing, food and basic medical care are not being met. As JPMA Cares secures the right resources, we partner with like-minded charities to distribute these resources to people and places in high need. JPMA Cares has partnered with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids; Cradles to Crayons; Family Promise; and the United Nations Foundation to name a few.”

Benefit for Babies attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy networking, food, drinks, music and a silent auction at the event. SPIN New York 54 is a unique and vibrant ping pong venue, so those who are interested can also play ping pong while raising funds to support one of the world’s most vulnerable populations—babies and young children in need.

Additionally, JPMA Cares will honor Dr. Sadiqa Kendi with the 2022 Impact Award for making a positive impact on the long-term success of babies and young children.
