The theme this year for the games and prizes was the classic board game, Candy Land. Bruce Saad and KATV’s Katherina Yancy were the emcees. They dressed like characters from the game, Lord Licorice and Princess Lolly.
Kids were encouraged to wear their jammies and take pictures with Santa. Lunch was provided during the silent auction.
Last year the event raised about $3,000 for the non-profit. Holy Sews volunteers make clothing for micro preemies who pass away during the second trimester. The clothing is provided at no charge to the hospital and family.
These lifeless babies are usually about 7 to 10 inches long and weigh only a few ounces, too small for even preemie size gowns.
Holy Sews is reaching out to all hospitals in Arkansas, offering to provide a special layette to their patients who have experienced such a loss.
Holy Sews, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering support to those experiencing perinatal bereavement.
