Zonta’s Annual Boutique Bingo
May 17 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This year’s event is to raise funds for installation of a Safe Haven Baby Box here in DEFIANCE!
The Safe Haven Law is in place to provide a safe way to surrender your healthy newborn without fear of criminal prosecution.
The safe haven baby box takes the face to face interaction out of the surrender and protects the mother from being seen. Safe Haven Law provides No Shame, No Blame, No Names.
Safe Haven Baby Boxes allows a mother to place her unwanted child in a safe haven baby box that is outside of selected fire stations. These boxes are equipped with a heating and cooling feature and are equipped with ADT silent alarm trips so emergency personal will be notified within 30 seconds that there is a newborn placed in the box. The child will then be picked up by EMS within 3-5 minutes. The Safe Haven Baby Box is a last resort option for women in crisis.
Safe Haven Baby Boxes Inc. was founded by Monica Kelsey who was abandoned as an infant. Monica has made it her personal mission to educate others on the Safe Haven Law and to do whatever it takes to save the lives of innocent babies from being abandoned. We are excited to announce that you will have the opportunity to hear from Monica at Boutique Bingo!!
