A Newsletter from Baby's Space   March, 2012  Volume 3, Issue 3

Baby's Space is a holistic, research-based approach to infant through 3rd grade education, adolescent mental health services and support for children and families residing in poverty and violence.

 

Dear Friends,

 

What a night! On Friday, March 2, nearly 300 guests joined together in the beautiful Walker Art Center to support Baby's Space at our annual FUNdraiser. We raised close to $100,000 for scholarships to help children attend Baby's Space.

 

And, what fun we had! Long-time supporters and new friends joined to hear local artist Alison Scott, browse the offerings of our art auction and see a first look at tote bags from Hidden Baby, a bag designer and manufacturer that sends proceeds from each bag sale to Baby's Space.

 

A highlight was sharing the stage with Daisy Green, a young mother whose two-year-old daughter is a student at Baby's Space. Daisy told the crowd about her experience and the benefits her daughter is receiving at Baby's Space.

 

The growth of Baby's Space continues strong. If you would like to further invest and visit with me personally, please contact me at terrie.rose@comcast.net or 612-414-3448

 

My special thanks for Jennifer Kline of ShopNBC for hosting our evening and to our event chairs Andrea Mueller and Mary Werbalowsky.

 

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the fun and to those of you who couldn't make it but continue to support Baby's Space.

 

Sincerely,

terrie rose signature

"You're not alone now." A guest's comment to Daisy Green, a guest speaker and mother of a Baby's Space student, who told the audience that her own mother was killed when she was eight-months-old and she felt alone when faced with finding childcare so she could get a job.
