Mothers & Babies Receives $4,000 Check From Binghamton Restaurant Week

Posted: Updated:

A $4,000 check was presented to Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network on Wednesday. That money is part of the proceeds from Binghamton Restaurant Week held in October. 

"This is truly an honor, very much an honor for us for our organization. We do cover, obviously Binghamton, and actually seven surrounding counties around Broome," says Sharon Chesna, the Executive Director of Mothers & Babies. 

Mothers & Babies connects parents with resources like health care and conducts education and outreach about health and pregnancy. Chesna says so far this year the organization has assisted nearly 15,000 individuals with their services and this donation will help them continue that effort.

Since the first Restaurant Week in 2010, the event has been able to make nearly $125,000 in donations to local charities.
