BCVC and La Leche League of Ventura County hosted a World Breastfeeding Week and Live, Love, Latch celebratory event for the community on Saturday, August 2 in Ventura. Breastfeeding supporters, mothers and families were all welcomed to demonstrate their support by signing in and being included in a nationwide tally being recorded by La Leche League to set a record for gathering of people in support of breastfeeding.

The event was a huge success and the day enjoyed by all! We recorded an amazing 219 supporters, including 79 moms, 31 dads, 36 infants, 62 children, and 11 other supporters! Attendees enjoyed goodie bags, raffle prizes, food, friendship and display of the importance of partner and family support when it comes to breastfeeding.

Thanks to all of you who came out to show your support! Thanks also to our amazing volunteers who helped with the event, as well as organizations who donated items for the goodie bags and raffle. This event was made possible because of you!
