Bloom :: An Event for New and Expecting Moms | Recap

Our second annual Bloom event was sponsored by a group of PHENOMENAL community partners. Wesley Medical Center and Botanica, The Wichita Gardens made this wonderful event possible. We adore you!

A sincere thank you to all of our generous sponsors who worked along with us to bring you this incredible event. They did all of this with a smile (even after weather required the event to be postponed) and we are honored to be given the opportunity to work with organizations who care about Wichita families as much as we do.

In partnership with Wesley Medical Center and City Moms Blog Network , we had such a lovely evening connecting over 100 new and expecting moms to local resources, mom & baby products and services, and Wichita area businesses! This is such a fun event for us to put on, and we couldn’t have done it without our co-title sponsors, Wesley – who provided every guest with a Halo Sleep Sack and the hit entertainment of the evening: the photo booth!
