All are welcome to kick off the holiday season with us at The Red Hat Event!
The Francis Family has been honoring the memory of their son by hosting The Red Hat Event for the last 6 years. Nicholas Francis was born still just weeks before his due date and was named after St. Nicholas since his birthday was around the Christmas holiday. He was fittingly dressed in a red Santa hat that was originally knit with love for his older brother, Gavin. The Francis Family had the idea to start the Red Hat Event as a way to spread love in the spirit of Nicholas and connect with others in the pregnancy and infant loss community. The event has grown each year and has become a tradition for many families.
After a two year break, the event will take place IN-PERSON at the Inn at Middletown!
There will be photos with Santa and options to purchase gifts and holiday supplies from merchants (who are donating proceeds to Hope After Loss) as well as the opportunity to participate in the Red Hat Silent Auction. Sam Chinigo will be taking photos of families with Santa and Carlos Ribeiro will be back as the DJ.
AND... the Francis Family has arranged for a VIRTUAL STORY TIME WITH SANTA THAT INCLUDES A BOOK SIGNED BY SANTA HIMSELF!
Pre-purchase wreaths, poinsettias, candles, apparel, and more and pick-up between 10-2 on Saturday, Nov. 19th at the Inn at Middletown, in Middletown, CT.
The virtual story time will be on the evening of Saturday, Nov. 19th.
