NEW YORK, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Baby Buggy®, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to delivering essential baby items to New York City families in need, held its 4th annual Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash, presented by Target®, Thursday, June 3rd at Victorian Gardens at Wollman Rink in Central Park.  The eagerly anticipated sold out event raised $383,000 and was attended by more than 1000 parents and children.  

Jessica Seinfeld, Founder and President of the Board, attended the event with Baby Buggy's Board members and Friends along with supporters Natalie Morales, Erica Hill, Jeff Gordon, Celerie Kemble, and Juju Chang all of whom attended with their children.  Also in attendance were many families from Baby Buggy partner site Harlem Children's Zone, who attended as VIP Guests.

"New Yorkers never disappoint, and they always support fellow New Yorkers in need," said Baby Buggy Founder Jessica Seinfeld.  "Families need  Baby Buggy now more than ever - our sites are reporting a 15% increase in need over this same time last year.  Many parents who already depend on Baby Buggy are now unemployed and forced to make difficult choices between things like paying rent, or buying medicine versus purchasing a crib or buying diapers.  Thanks to our generous corporate sponsors and supporters, the money raised at this event will mean fewer parents having to make painful choices in how they provide for their children."

Target was lead sponsor. Additional sponsors were Aveeno Baby®, Nickelodeon, Delta Children's Products, Natural Care by Danny Seo, Lansinoh, Rosie Pope Maternity, MeeGenius! and Skip Hop.  

The Target tote gift bag contained up & up™ hand sanitizer, up & up baby sunscreen, Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion, Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo, Delta toddler hangers, Cleanwell, HIT Entertainment DVD, Sprout Coloring Book, Observer Playground, MeeGenius! Postcard, Lansinoh Clean & Condition Cloths, Rosie Pope Maternity bib, Gruber Photographers coupon & free passes to SoulCycle and Citibabes.
