It was a BLAST!
On May 12th and 13th, we held our fourth annual expo—and our first ever collaboration with The Spotted Whale. The event was held at the Alex Madonna Expo in San Luis Obispo and had over 1200 shoppers. This is an incredible number of people who came out to shop and learn about local resources, and we couldn't be more grateful to everyone who attended. We were able to give away 4 giveaway baskets to community members leading up to event thanks to more than $1500 in donated items and services.
The Spotted Whale also hosted 20 vendors who were birth and wellness professionals and retailers. The vendor display was definitely one of the highlights of the weekend: it was packed with local resources, including items you can use right now to get ready for your baby's arrival or postpartum!
Thank you to First 5 SLO County for sponsoring our event and donating 200 bags that we stuffed with many local resources!
We had a ton of fun at this year's expo—thanks so much to everyone who came out to support us! We're looking forward to making our next event even better. This collaboration between the CCCN Expo and The Spotted Whale came about after months of planning and coordination between both organizations' and the CCCN Board of Directors, volunteers, ambassadors, members, vendors, giveaway donors and staff at The Spotted Whale. If you attended the expo please complete this survey by June 15, 2023 to enter a chance to win a $25 gift card from Costco!
