Press Release

La Leche League of Carbon County will be holding its first fundraiser, a Silent Auction, on Saturday, September 20th, from 4-6pm, in the USU-Eastern Jennifer Leavitt Student Center (across from the tennis courts) in Price, Utah. A lot of fantastic items have been donated to the cause from around the state and all over the country including: tickets to Utah’s Hogle Zoo, toys and games, a cloth diaper basket, Desert Wave Pool tickets, scrapbooking supplies, Boba 4G carrier, gift certificates to local restaurants, NBA Jazz tickets, Park Hopper tickets to Disneyland, a 4-night stay in Cancun, and more!

All auction items have been donated to La Leche League of Carbon County so 100% of the money that attendees spend at this event will benefit local mothers, babies, and families through La Leche League of Carbon County. There will also be a Bake Sale with delicious, homemade items cooked up by local moms and dads.

La Leche League is an an international, nondenominational, nonprofit organization founded in 1956 whose mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother. The local group, La Leche League of Carbon County, was founded in August 2013 and has been taking helping phone calls and emails from mothers seeking support since then. They began hosting monthly meetings at Castleview Hospital on the first Wednesday of every month at 10am in June this year. The local group is the only breastfeeding support group in Central Utah.

With the funds raised at this event La Leche League of  Carbon County hopes to be able to purchase informational sheets to give out to mothers on a variety of common breastfeeding issues in both English and Spanish, up-to-date breastfeeding books for local libraries so that more families can have access to accurate information, and a variety of baby carriers to create a Carrier Library so that families can try out different types before committing to buying. We also plan to create “New Mom” packets filled with information helpful to new mothers and available to them for free, among other things.

La Leche League of Carbon County and this Silent Auction fundraiser are entirely run by volunteers.
