A fundraising event for Baby Café Bakersfield

Event Information

You're invited to our 5th Annual Fundraiser Dinner benefitting Baby Café Bakersfield on Friday, October 4, 2019! The evening begins at 6:30 PM with a no-host cocktail mixer and continues with dinner served at 7 PM, awards, and a silent auction. A no-host bar will be open for the evening. Please join us at Elements Venue in Bakersfield for a memorable evening celebrating all those who support breastfeeding families in Kern County!

Baby Café Bakersfield is a local organization which makes clinical lactation care and breastfeeding support accessible to all families in the area.  Highly-trained lactation staff are available through our drop-in sessions 3 times every week, offering everything from latch assistance to breast pump education,  and through the whole range of breastfeeding challenges and needs.  There is no cost to families to make use of this important service, and that's where your support is greatly needed!  By participating in this event as a sponsor, donor of products or services to our raffle and auction, or simply by purchasing a dinner ticket, you are making Baby Café possible, opening the doors to help families meet their own infant feeding goals in a welcoming and helpful atmosphere.  

This event is a perfect date night or excuse to dress up! While nursing babies in arms are always welcome at Baby Café and CVLA events, this one will not be suitable for mobile toddlers or other children. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the ongoing operating costs of Baby Café Bakersfield. Purchase your tickets today to be sure you won't miss out on the fun!  

This evening also offers us the opportunity to present awards to several local individuals who are providing clinical lactation care in a variety of settings.  Please join us to help celebrate these individuals and their accomplishments! 

Donations for our raffle and silent auction are also being accepted. Please contact Adrienne at aguirguis@centralvalleylactation.org if you have an item(s) to donate. A receipt for your tax-deductible donation can be prepared for you.

About the Organization

Baby Café Bakersfield

An IBCLC is available at Baby Café to help breastfeeding families at no cost to them. These professional services are provided by local IBCLCs who volunteer their time to serve their community.

IBCLCs are the clinical experts in lactation care and are able to provide the highest level of breastfeeding support for all breastfeeding problems, including complex situations.

In Bakersfield, IBCLC services can be difficult to access, and Baby Café Bakersfield provides these services because they are necessary to ensure that all families in the community have the opportunity to reach their own breastfeeding goals.
