    Victoria Gardens at Central Park transformed into an amusement park last Wednesday evening, June 4, as Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld hosted the 2014 Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash, New York City’s largest family charity event.  Over $580,000 was raised as more than 1,100 guests, including Bridget Moynahan, Jane Krakowski, Kyle MacLachlan, and Rebecca Minkoff, gathered for a night of family-fun featuring carnival rides, face painting, and specially curated kid-friendly activities.

    “I go on the slide, and as my son’s gotten a little bit older he’s gone from on my lap, to being next to me, and now I’m sure he’ll just grab the sack and we’ll be flying down,” actor Kyle MacLachlan said.

    However, the evening was not only about sliding down slides and eating ice cream.  The highlight of the night was hosting the fathers and children from the Bronx Fatherhood Program as VIP guests.  The Bronx Fatherhood Program is one of Baby Buggy’s grantee sites and provides the fathers enrolled with counseling and training to become strong and stable caregivers for their children.  Baby Buggy provides these dads with essential items like diapers and cribs to ensure the health and safety of their children; therefore they were honored to be able to welcome the fathers they support as VIP Guests.

    “Seeing those fathers and being able to spend time with their children in a really fun environment that they probably don’t get to experience a lot of.  Just a night out on the town with their kids in the heart of the city is a really wonderful thing to be able to do,” Jessica Seinfeld described as her favorite part of the night.

    Though Jessica Seinfeld stood out with her chic new blonde pixie cut that had heads turning everywhere, she wasn’t unique in her favorite aspect of the event, as the main attraction was supporting the non-profit that was founded in 2001.  Baby Buggy is dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, products, clothing, and services for their infants and children up to age 14.  They have donated over 6.7 million items to thousands of children through their extensive network of community-based organizations across the country.  Parents everywhere admire the magnitude of their success.

    “I just think it’s a really smart organization that, yes, they give all these items to help out families which is so important, but they also provide the social service aspect of it to really help families help themselves,” actress Bridget Moynahan said.
