Kitchen Store raises funds for perinatal bereavement

The Kitchen Store & More recently raised more than $19,000 for the Conway Regional Perinatal Bereavement Program during the Holiday Preview Event.

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 $700. Basket winners were

•    Hannah Price, “Here’s to Your Health”

•    Jennifer Rainey, “Cook up Some Fun”

•    Jayme Jeane, “Girl on the Go”

Hosts of the event included: Jamie and Melissa Gates, Jennifer and Darren Hill, Brad and Dr. Amy Johnson, Dr. Greg and Jenifer Kendrick, Ryan and Kirsten Kravitz, Rocky and Dr. Debra Lawrence, Trey and Dr. Brandi Martin, Travis and Amanda Mulhearn, Tony and Dr. Courtney Sick, Randy and Pam Sims, Gene and Susan Salter, and Dr. David and Dr. Pebble Sutherland.
