Baby Basics of Collier County (www.BabyBasicsCollier.org) will host its 7th Annual Champagne Brunch & Fashion Show on Monday, November 10 at 10:30 a.m. at Wyndemere Country Club, located at 700 Wyndemere Way in Naples.
The annual Champagne Brunch & Fashion Show is hosted each year to raise funds for Baby Basics, a volunteer organization that provides free diapers and kindness to over 345 infants and toddlers from low-income, working families in Collier County and Bonita Springs.
Champagne Brunch & Fashion Show attendees will enjoy delicious food, local models, and a showing of fall’s latest fashions by Kay’s on the Beach. Baby Basics families will also be in attendance to speak about the program and how it has benefited their family.
Tickets to the Champagne Brunch & Fashion Show are $85 per person, which will provide diapers for one month for one baby in need in our community.
Baby Basics of Collier County was founded in 2004 and has impacted over 1,600 families in Collier County and Bonita Springs since it began. Families interested in the program are referred from local social service agencies and are screened for qualification. To participate in the program, families must meet certain criteria – which include at least one working parent or guardian, demonstrated financial need, and the family may not be receiving federal or state cash assistance. Those families who meet the criteria come to the closest distribution site to pick up a free supply of diapers.
Volunteers greet the families, help them select the proper size, and provide information about the next distribution and other opportunities for supportive services. Baby Basics is a 100 percent volunteer organization, and all donations, and sponsorship funds except those specifically earmarked for administrative costs, are used to purchase diapers.
