FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAY 12, 2015
2nd ANNUAL HUNTSVILLE MOM PROM
A Fun Ladies Evening Out to Support a Cause
On June 6th, 2015, women in the Rocket city will wear prom gowns, up-dos, and dance the night away at the Huntsville Mom Prom to raise funds and awareness for ICAN of Huntsville.
The Huntsville Mom Prom will take place at the UAH University Center Exhibit Hall from 7pm-11pm on Saturday, June 6th, 2015. This event benefiting the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) will include many elements of a typical high school prom – including the crowning of a prom queen – as well as a photo booth, professional event photographers, silent auctions, and swag bags. Huntsville Mom Prom is a ladies only event, but you don’t have to be a mom to join in. Tickets may be purchased online for $40 in advance at the event website, www.huntsvillemomprom.com. Tickets also include one drink ticket for guests 21 years and up, non-alcoholic drinks, and light hor d’oeuvres. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at a cash bar at the event.
Hosting this event is the International Cesarean Awareness (ICAN) of Huntsville. ICAN is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve maternal-child health by reducing unnecessary cesareans through education, supporting cesarean recovery, and advocating for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Alabama’s cesarean rate of 35.8 percent means that more than one out of three women who give birth in a hospital will have a cesarean delivery. This is a widespread issue. ICAN of Huntsville holds women to women support group meetings the first Thursday at Willowbrook at Madison campus from 6:30-8:30 pm. The meetings offer support for women recovering from cesareans, provide access to evidence based educational materials, and advocate for informed decision making for healthcare consumers within our community. The International Cesarean Awareness Network is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with over 150 chapter worldwide and over 30 years of international presence to date. www.ican-online.org www.ican-online.org/huntsville
