All aboard for the AABC Foundation's annual fundraising gala!

On October 7th, the Hotel Captain Cook will be the site of the 2017 Gala to Grow Birth Centers. Our vintage cruise inspired theme will transport you to a bygone era with lively music, fine spirits and a delicious buffet dinner. Don't miss your chance to bid on wonderful vacations and other unique opportunities during our live and silent auctions!

Some of the vacations include:

  • Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico 
  • Kauai, Hawaii 
  • Big Sky, Montana
  • Disney World 
  • Scottsdale, Arizona
  • Fort Worth, Texas
  • Austin, Texas
  • Washington Wine Country
  • “A Little Slice of Heaven” in East Texas

Do you have an auction item you would like to donate? Complete the online donation form or contact Linda Baysore at 215-234-8068 or by email.

We also are seeking sponsors for the event; perhaps you have always pictured yourself as the "Captain" of the ship or longed to be a "First Mate" -- now you can prove it! Your sponsorship will speak volumes about your commitment to the leading edge of women's maternity care, and help the AABC Foundation's efforts to benefit women and families. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities.

The best part? All proceeds benefit the AABC Foundation, supporting research and encouraging the growth of birth centers across the country. The AABC Foundation is the ONLY organization working to further the birth center model of care across America. 

Tickets are $125 in advance, and $150 on-site. Reserve your ticket online
