Celebrity moms were out in droves to support Jessica Seinfeld's charity Baby Buggy. This year marked the 10th anniversary of Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, clothing, products, and educational tools and services for their children. We joined Jessica Seinfeld, Rosie Pope, Cynthia Rowley, Jeremy Sisto, Tiffani Thiessen and Ali Wentworth with our kids to have a blast in the name of doing good.
We partied inside Central Park at a mini amusement park. There were tons of kids' activities sponsored by our favorite brands. It's a great chance for families to kick off the summer for a great cause. The event also celebrated the debut of Baby Buggy'??s new Fatherhood Initiative, a program aimed at helping fathers of at-risk children. More than 1000 parents and children turned out on the somewhat swampy night, no one seemed to mind the heat as we enjoyed the rides and raised more than $385,000 for Baby Buggy--and I know this money will be put to great use.
'??After ten years of working closely with our city'??s mothers and children in need, we could clearly see the impact that a fatherhood initiative would have in at-risk families,'? said Baby Buggy Founder Jessica Seinfeld. '??Every study shows that a child with a father present is more likely to succeed in every aspect of his or her life, and yet many dads who want to play a more supportive role in the lives of their kids for a variety of reasons cannot. With the support of our sponsors and generous Baby Buggy dads, we are committed to helping community-based programs that overcome the obstacles to fathers who can, should, and want to be there for their kids.'?
