San Diego CA— Miracle Babies, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to unite parents with hospitalized newborns by providing transportation and supportive services, will celebrate its Miracle Circle Auxiliary on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. The annual Breakfast at Tiffany’s will take place from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will include a cocktail reception, decadent brunch and exciting program.
Speakers include Dr. Nita Landry, and Dr. Denise Suttner. The keynote will be delivered by Dr. Nita co-host on the Emmy® Award-winning talk show The Doctors and a board- certified OB/GYN. Denise Suttner, M.D. at Rady Children’s Hospital, will also speak at the event.
This year’s event will raise funds for a “Heart” shuttle designated to transport parents and babies receiving care at Rady Children’s Hospital Heart Institute. Miracle Babies started its transportation services in June 2020 logging 25,000 miles providing over 650 rides and the addition of the cardiac shuttle will ensure cardiac babies don’t miss their vital cardiac care appointments.
The Miracle Circle was founded in 2014 to band together philanthropic and innovative women to serve as goodwill ambassadors to provide leadership and strategic advice on fundraising, community outreach and advocacy of the Miracle Babies programs.
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a day to honor and celebrate this wonderful group of dynamic philanthropic leaders dedicated to serving our mission” said Marjan Daneshmand, Miracle Babies co-founder. She added, “This year, we are gathering at just half capacity at this exclusive fundraising luncheon to renew our community’s commitment to the Miracle Babies mission and to recognize the work of our members.” In 2020, Miracle Babies provided support to more than 7,000 families through our community programs.
The event will abide by all county guidelines, operate at fifty percent capacity with tables spaced six-feet apart. Tickets prices are $200 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are available. To purchase tickets and become a member of the Miracle Circle, please visit www.miraclebabies.org
About Miracle Babies
Miracle Babies is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to unite families with their hospitalized newborns. Our tagline is “Together for a better beginning,” reflecting the importance of this family connection in the critical early weeks and months of an infant’s life and its linkage to improved health outcomes. We know that parents with hospitalized babies need to be at the hospital as much as possible, but often that is not possible. Transportation issues, including the cost of gas, hospital parking fees and medically being unable to drive are significant barriers that many families in San Diego must overcome to be with their babies. By providing transportation services to families, Miracle Babies helps alleviate the stressors of everyday life, allowing mom and dad to get to the hospital, perform kangaroo care (a skin-to-skin practice), and breastfeed more often, practices which are known to result in better health outcomes for the baby.
