FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
3rd ANNUAL HUNTSVILLE MOM PROM
A Fun Ladies Evening Out to Support a Cause
On June 11th, 2016, 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 CTC Exhibit Hall from 7pm-11pm on Saturday, June 11th, 2016. 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 auction, 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 $50 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 preventable cesareans through education, supporting cesarean recovery, and advocating for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Alabama’s cesarean rate of 35.4 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. Additionally, ICAN of Huntsville has used funds raised to pilot a Doula Grant for Expectant Mothers program in our community that helps mothers in need to receive birth support that has been shown to improve outcomes. 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.
