Fundraiser to Help Make Breastfeeding Accessible and Affordable

When we started to plan our Big Latch On event, we thought this would be the perfect venue to share with our local community about our new nonprofit organization, the San Diego Breastfeeding Center (SDBFC) Foundation.  After years of hearing from moms with limited incomes that they could not afford the breastfeeding support they needed, we decided to find a way to make breastfeeding support accessible and affordable for ALL local moms!  Starting in August, the SDBFC Foundation will begin to subsidize costs for private lactation consultations for qualifying families.

Many of our friends and families have started to donate to our Foundation, which has given us a great start!  But to meet our annual goal of $35,000, we reached out to our friends, colleagues, and community members to see if they could help us raise even more.  I am honored and humbled by the amount of items and services that have been donated to bring you an amazing opportunity drawing, which will take place at our Big Latch On event on August 6th!

Even if you are no longer breastfeeding, we would love if you would join us from 9am-11:30am at the Big Latch On.  Your first opportunity drawing ticket is free.  Additional tickets are $1 each.  The drawing will take place at 10:45am.  ALL proceeds will be given to the SDBFC Foundation.  

Look at the fabulous prizes you have the chance to win!
