MT. LAUREL, N.J., Tuesday, April 4, 2023 — JPMA Cares is thrilled to announce the 3rd annual Benefit for Babies, to be held on Wednesday, May 17, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. EDT at VUE Rooftop DC atop Hotel Washington, located at 515 15th St NW Washington, D.C. 20004. The event is open to all individuals interested in supporting one of the world’s most vulnerable populations — babies and young children in need.
The JPMA Cares Benefit for Babies is all about coming together for an incredible evening of fun while advancing the foundation’s mission of contributing 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. In 2022, JPMA Cares coordinated the donation of 22,332 products, valued at over $360,000, impacting the lives of over 10,000 children, working alongside organizations like Injury Free Coalition for Kids, Cradles to Crayons, Family Promise, and the United Nations Foundation.
“As we look ahead in 2023, JPMA Cares remains committed to its mission of improving the lives of babies in need. For some, the need is products or education, but for others, it is fundamental needs like housing, food and basic medical care,” said Jennifer Mitchell, chairman of the JPMA Cares Board of Directors. “This year’s Benefit for Babies event will serve as a driving force for collaboration between the industry, parents, and advocates, laying the groundwork for future generations to have the necessary resources and support to thrive.”
Attendees of the Benefit for Babies will enjoy food, drinks, music, and a silent auction with the stunning Washington, D.C. skyline at sunset as a backdrop. If you are interested in attending the event, tickets can be purchased at bit.ly/JPMACares for $250 per person. For those unable to attend in person, donations can be made online or by participating in the silent auction.
