This year, haven collective
(Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange, Haven Gastropub +Brewery in Old Pasadena, and taco asylum at the Camp in Costa Mesa) will lead a team during Orange County's March of Dimes "March for Babies" on Sunday, April 28th.
The organization's mission to a nation of stronger, healthier babies is one that has become dear to us over the past year and a half!
Our Executive Chef Greg Daniels and his wife, Abby, gave birth to Madeleine Daniels in December, 2011. Madeleine was born with several complications and spent more than a month in the NICU. While there, March of Dimes provided support and education to them. They offer a range of services, from small things, like phone chargers and snacks, to the more significant, such as infant CPR training for babies like Madeleine, who have had a tracheostomy.
March of Dimes asks nothing
of parents for the services they provide.
Today, we are asking you to please join our walk as a member of Team haven collective.
FREE HAVEN BURGER!
On Monday, April 1st from Noon to 3 p.m. at Haven Orange, come meet Madeleine and sign up for our walk! When you sign up, we'll treat you to a complimentary Haven Burger for lunch that day!

Your time and/or gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help
moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it
will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in
newborn intensive care.
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
why march for babies?
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.
look who’s walking!
This year, more than 7 million people will join their family, friends and colleagues in 900 communities across the nation. Our volunteers and staff will encourage and support you in your efforts to raise awareness and funds. No matter if this is your first year or your 25th, you can expect the event to be fun, compelling and rewarding.
Thank you in advance for your time.
