Since 2004, The Woman's Hospital of Texas Annual Labor Day Luncheon & Style Show has grown from a relatively small gathering of 175 to a sell-out crowd of 600. Benefiting the March of Dimes, the event brings together influential women in the community, working moms, stay-at-home moms and moms-to-be in a fun, social environment.
The Luncheon offers attendees a peek at fall’s fashion must-haves, outstanding lunch fare, treat-filled goody bags and the best in boutique shopping – all in the name of charity – as Woman’s and the March of Dimes join forces on a shared mission to stem the effects of premature birth.
Each year, one out of every eight infants is born too soon. Many preemies are plagued with lifelong health problems, and the cause of nearly half of all premature births remains unknown. Physicians at Woman’s proudly deliver nearly 9,000 babies annually, and for those entering the world weighing less than 1,500 grams, Woman’s provides an extraordinarily high survival rate.
Woman's stands strong in its commitment to excellent healthcare for the women and infants it serves, and with the increasing rise in pre-term deliveries, support for the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing premature birth is as important as ever.
