POINT PLEASANT — Fruth Pharmacy will be holding its Baby Face Event for the second time this month.
In an effort to help local baby charities, Fruth Pharmacy will host an event looking for babies to be the “baby face” for the company’s advertising.
To participate in the event, children must be 0-36 months of age. Parents or guardians of the children are required to sign consent forms for participation and for use of the child’s image for Fruth’s advertising. There is a $10 fee to participate. The $10 fee is a non-refundable donation to purchase items for a store’s baby organization of choice. For example, a child participating in the Milton location, will help buy $10 worth of baby products for Lily’s Place in Huntington – an organization that helps babies recovering from neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS).
Local charities benefiting from the event are the Mason County Baby Pantry, God’s Hand at Work and the Gallia County Outreach Center in Gallipolis and the Meigs Cooperative Parish in Pomeroy.
Children participating in the event are also entered for a chance to win several prizes. Each store will be giving away a Pack N Play, Johnson & Johnson Bath Gift Set, and gift cards. There are a total of 75 prizes at the store level. Later, photos of all participants will be submitted to the corporate office for a chance at one of four photography packages valued at $250 each.
If a parent would like the opportunity to enter their child for a chance at being the “baby face” of Fruth and to help a baby organization, they need to go to their local Fruth Pharmacy by March 24 at 4 p.m. to register. The event will take place corporate wide on Saturday, March 25 at 11 a.m.
If someone would like to donate, but not participate, they may drop off a needed baby item for local charities in the store’s collection box. To learn more about the organizations each store is helping, please visit www.fruthpharmacy.com and click News.
