OHIO VALLEY — Fruth Pharmacy will be holding its third annual Baby Face Event on March 24.
To help local baby charities, Fruth Pharmacy will host an event looking for 4 babies to be the “baby face” for the company’s advertising for at least 1 year.
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). Locally, the following will benefit from the event: in Mason County, the Mason Baby Pantry; in Meigs County, the Meigs Cooperative Parish; and in Gallia County, God’s Hands at Work.
Children participating in the event are also entered for a chance to win several prizes. Children will be placed into 3 categories: 0-12 months, 13-24 months, and 25-36 months. Each store will be giving away a $25 Fruth Gift Card to 3 overall finalists. There will also be a basket drawing for anyone who enters the event at each location. Photos of the finalists will be submitted to the corporate office for a chance at 1 of 4 photography packages valued at $250 each. Each child will also receive a FREE 4×6 photo taken on the day of the event. Children are encouraged to wear spring or Easter wear, but it is not required.
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 23 at 7 p.m. to register. The event will take place corporate wide on Saturday, March 24 at 11 a.m. Registration is open from Feb. 19 – March 23.
If someone would like to donate, but not participate, they may drop off a needed baby item in the store’s collection box. To learn more about the organizations each store is helping, please visit www.fruthpharmacy.com and click the About section.
