‘Bootiful Babies Benefit’ planned for future birthing center

To raise money for its New Generations Birthing Center, Smoky Mountain OB/GYN Associates will host the first “Bootiful Babies Benefit” from 2-7:30 p.m. outside their Sylva office at 64 Eastgate Drive.

There will be a wide selection of activities for families including face painting, pumpkin decorating and belly casting.

The New Generations Birthing Center is a $3 million renovation project of the mother and baby section on the hospital’s third floor. Plans for the Birthing Center include increasing the number of available labor and delivery rooms, implementing new technology and offering a specific operating room for Caesarean sections.

The MedWest-Harris and Swain Foundation has already raised more than $50,000.

Admission and participation are free. Donations are greatly appreciated. There will be live entertainment at the event and homemade chili will be available.
