Actress, model, author and mom Molly Sims brought joy to 40 Los Angeles-area military moms-to-be as she served as guest host of a group baby shower in their honor. The event was held at The Riviera Country Club during the PGA TOUR’s 2015 Northern Trust Open. The moms are active duty service members or the spouses of deployed members of Naval Base Ventura County, Camp Pendleton and other area military installations.
Hosted by Northern Trust and the Northern Trust Open, the “Dream A Little Dream”-themed event was sponsored by baby bedding company Carousel Designs, with support from The Riviera Country Club and 4moms. In addition to lunch, generously donated by Whole Foods Market Santa Monica, each of the honored moms-to-be will receive Operation Shower’s signature “Shower In A Box” – a gift of high-quality products for mothers and babies that have been generously donated by Carousel Designs, 4moms and other companies.
“Operation Shower was created to honor military families who are experiencing pregnancy – a joyous time, but also a stressful time. For the innumerable sacrifices they make behind the scenes that enable their loved ones to proudly serve our country and protect our freedom, these moms deserve our support, our love, and an opportunity to celebrate together,” said Operation Shower Founder and Chief Shower Officer LeAnn Morrissey.
“As a mom, I know how difficult pregnancy can be in the best of circumstances, and I can’t imagine how challenging it must be to experience pregnancy without your spouse by your side,” said Sims. “I am honored to have the opportunity to host the Operation Shower event and thank these amazing women for everything they do at home that enables their spouses to proudly serve our country.”
