Eastside Baby Corner is hosting its eighth annual Helping Kids THRIVE Luncheon at noon on Nov. 15 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.

The event, which is EBC’s only fundraiser for the year, is themed “Simple ideas for brighter futures.”

The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.

Dr. Benjamin Hoffman, M.D. at the Oregon Health and Science University, is this year’s keynote speaker. Hoffman, a certified car seat technician for almost 20 years, has done significant research about child passenger safety, according to a press release.

“A number of studies have shown that an incorrect angle or recline can lead to injury to babies, especially if too upright, as the baby’s head can flop forward and obstruct the airway,” Hoffman said in the release.

To register for the luncheon, visit www.babycorner.org/helping-kids-thrive-luncheon. For more information, contact Kim Foster at kimfoster@ihmail.com.
