Many of you asked to arrange for social activities for gay parents and future parents, and even more urgently we all recognize the need to help those among us who cannot afford the high costs of surrogacy and egg donation. On October 1 we should all get babysitters if needed, and come together for this fun community event, and bring as many of our friends along!!
We will have terrific raffle prizes as well: two Broadway tickets (courtesy of BJ Holt), a $100 gift certificate to the Bogota Latin Bistro restaurant (thank you George Constantinou and Farid Ali Lancheros!), and a set that includes a voucher for a free night of baby nursing services and a $100 gift card from Chapman Hill Baby, a baby nursing service and an online baby supplies and toy store.
