Hawaii Mothers’ Milk, Inc. is pleased to honor Hawaii's lactation consultants at its 17th Annual Benefit Brunch & Silent Auction. The benefit is being held at the O‘ahu Country Club on Sunday, April 9, 2017 from 9:30-1:30pm.  The brunch will feature a Silent Auction, live music and a Fashion Show featuring Allison Izu, and Ten Tomorrow. Tickets are available for purchase starting at $75 per person. Sponsorship packages are also available for $800, $1,000 and $2,500.

During the event, Hawaii Mothers’ Milk will be honoring our community’s lactation consultants for the countless hours they dedicate to helping Hawaii's moms to enjoy the benefits of breastfeeding.

“Hawaii enjoys a high initial breastfeeding rate of 80%; however at 6 months only 20% are exclusively nursing. Our lactation consultants play a key role in helping new moms continue with breastfeeding. Annually, our agency has close to 3,000 in-person visits and 3,678 telephone calls which our lactation consultants assisted with,” said Patricia Ane, Executive Director for Hawaii Mothers’ Milk.
