On Thursday, November 3, 2016, from 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm at The Pierre Hotel in New York City, a few hundred corporate sponsors, medical researchers, community leaders, members of the media, and parents gathered to recognize the outstanding achievements made by companies and individuals in the areas of healthy pregnancies, infant safety, education, and research.



Highlights of the evening included the presentation of the Marian Sokol Award for the Advancement of Stillbirth Awareness and Prevention to the Star Legacy Foundation; a research grant to Dr. Benjamin Okaty; and recognition of Kate Spade & Company and the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity for their leading role in providing parental education.



The evening included live entertainment by Miriam Jameson and the Brewster Theater Company.  The silent auction and formal dinner raised nearly $200,000 to benefit First Candle‚Äôs mission of educating families with the latest research for safe pregnancies and healthy babies while supporting families who have suffered a loss. JPMA would like to thank all its member companies that attended the gala and generously supported this event.
