Kitchen Store raises funds for perinatal bereavement

The Kitchen Store & More raised more than $19,500 for the Conway Regional Perinatal Bereavement Program, during their Holiday Preview Event on Oct. 26. The store was decorated for the holidays, as customers took advantage of the opportunity to shop while supporting a worthy cause.
Conway Regional’s Perinatal Bereavement program offers a personal, long-term approach to serving those touched by the tragic loss of an infant during pregnancy, stillbirth or during the first few months after birth. Through the program, the Conway Regional staff provides supportive care in the hospital, as well as follow-up care after loss.
Since the annual event began in 2005, The Kitchen Store & More has donated 100 percent of gross sales from the festive shopping event to the Conway Regional Health Foundation to help fund the program.
The event also included a raffle for three different baskets, all valued at more than $750. Basket winners were:
· Shanda New, “Cooking for the Holidays”
· Nancy Hall, “Girls Night Out”
· Amy Porter, “Here’s to Your Health”

Hosts of the event included: Jamie and Melissa Gates, Jennifer and Darren Hill, Wes and Dr. Keitha Holland, Dr. Greg and Jenifer Kendrick, Ryan and Kirsten Kravitz, Dr. Debra Lawrence, Trey and Dr. Brandie Martin, Travis and Amanda Mulhearn, Gene and Susan Salter, Tony and Dr. Courtney Sick, Dr. David and Dr. Pebble Sutherland, and Dr. Josh and Brandy Ward.
