BOLD Fort Worth

I know, I know, everything revolves around "Birth" (aka BOLD - Birth On Labor Day)  and the Tarrant County Birth Network these days.  I have a great post that I'm working on, but I have to get this information out.  Bear with me.

The date is set for our local production of "Birth" -- September 25, 2010 -- with proceeds benefiting TCBN.  It will be held at Martin Hall on the Texas Wesleyan University campus.  There will be a matinee and also an evening performance with a Birth Fair linking the two.  Each performance will by followed by a "Talk Back" -- led by DFW's own Joe Gumm -- with a panel of birth professionals from our community.  We are so fortunate to have such a strong birth community with so many talented birth advocates. 

We need help in several areas including:  marketing, sponsorship, printing, concessions, vendors, silent auction, community calendars, tickets, "goody bags," childcare for event, etc.  Some jobs will be on the day of production, but many will need to be done before the big day.  Some are people-oriented and others can be done from your computer.  There is something for everyone. 

You can also find updates on Facebook.  Join us online to keep up with what's happening:  Volunteer Page and BOLD Fort Worth page.  Our first Volunteer Meeting will take place this Tuesday, July 6 in Keller.  You can find out more about it at "Events" on our Volunteer page on Facebook. 

We are so excited for this BOLD event.  We hope to make it an annual tradition, making people aware of their choices in maternity care.  BE BOLD FORT WORTH!

All 4 of my Amarillo DVD couples have had great unmedicated births. I'd love to have another one! Would also love to see our West Texas sisters at BOLD in September!
