Pacific Post Partum Support Society presents an informative, interesting and hilarious Fashion Show this October. Great Expectations features beautiful, bizarre, and memorable 20th century maternity garments from the extensive private collection of fashion historian Ivan Sayers. This innovative fundraiser will help our non profit make a difference in the lives of women and families.
Our programs are funded by government contracts, community and foundation grants and individual donors. In the light of limited government/grant funding and an ever increasing demand for our services, your support is needed now more than ever.
Donations provide for our telephone support, weekly women’s support groups, partner education sessions, community trainings and resource materials.
We had a very successful Angel Donors Fundraiser Dinner held at the Shaughnessy Golf Club in May. Over $45,000 was raised in one night thanks to our hosts Mike and BG Burdick and a champion for our cause, Catherine Chow. We are grateful for this incredible gift and the team of caring community members.
