Philly Fertility Clinic Holds Dance Benefit to Help Build Families
a blog by Kim Griffiths, March 9, 2013
The costs of fertility treatment add up quickly whether your protocol consists of fertility drugs and intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). Countless couples with infertility must dig deep into their pockets to find the funds to build their families.
The Cade Foundation, an organization that provides family building grants for fertility treatment and domestic adoption, along with Reproductive Medicine Associates of Philadelphia, recognize the financial struggle and have organized a benefit to provide one lucky couple the gift of a lifetime- free fertility treatment- and raise funds for the family building grant mission.
On Saturday, March 9, 2013, RMA of Philadelphia and Cade Foundation will host their first collaborative event, “Dancing for the Family”. Jackie Gutmann, M.D., a fertility doctor with RMA of Philadelphia strongly believes in Cade Foundation’s mission and says it is an honor to work with an organization that has given the gift of a child to 37 families. “People can enter the raffle by purchasing a ticket and attending the event, or by purchasing a ticket and not attending. The raffle is transferrable; some people bought a ticket thinking of their daughter, some are patients, some wanted to give back. They are all helping Cade Foundation to support their mission,” Gutmann explains.
Ticket holders, whether they attend the event personally or have purchased a ticket for someone they love who is dealing with infertility, will be entered for a chance to win $10,000 worth of fertility treatment and $3,000 worth of fertility drugs (donated by a sponsoring pharmacy). All of the proceeds will be donated to Cade Foundation which becomes grant support for other couples struggling to build their families.
“Our goal is to provide care that couples might not otherwise be able to afford,” says Gutmann. The vibe of the event is all about helping people build their families and giving recognition not just to RMA, but especially to Cade Foundation. Couples who partake in the event will receive complimentary Latin dance instruction, Tapas, and dessert.
