Fort Wayne Komets Hockey Supports Healthier Moms and Babies

On Sunday February 12th thanks to Lutheran Health Network, Healthier Moms and Babies was recognized as the Komets Charity partner. Healthier Moms and Babies received a donation of $2,500 from the Komets along with 250 tickets for our staff, supporters, Advisory Board members, and our families to attend the game.

 Members of the Komets organization present large check to Healthier Moms and Babies during a period break of a hockey game. 

The check was presented at half time with Mike Poore, CEO of Lutheran Health Network; Paula Autry, CEO of Lutheran Hospital; Dr. Heather Wolfe, Lutheran Pediatrician and Healthier Moms and Babies Vice Chair; Paige Wilkins, Healthier Moms and Babies Director; Ashley Nichter, Healthier Moms and Babies Case Manager; Sanyelles Ruiz, former Healthier Moms and Babies client and of course Icey! A great time was had by all and we had no problem filling our 250 seats with our family, friends, current and previous clients. Lutheran Health Network is a 2018 Corporate Sponsor of Healthier Moms and Babies and helping us start a Perinatal Mood Disorders group like their Mood Changes and Moms support group. The focus of the group is to provide a support network for our clients and other women in and around the Southeast side of town. The group will allow participants to receive support and discuss common concerns such as sleep, self-care, nursing/feeding, childbirth recovery, partner and family relationships, and anything else that arises. Thanks to the Komets and Lutheran Health Network for supporting “Nurturing New Beginnings”!
