If you’ve been following Knox Vegas for a little while, or if you’ve had a look at our Core Values, you’ll know that giving back to the community is something that is extremely important to us. We love supporting some of the incredible and hardworking organizations that are doing great things and making Knoxville a better place. In March, we’re excited to partner again with another such organization.
About Rockabye Butterfly
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a medical condition that affects newborn babies who experience withdrawal symptoms after being exposed to certain substances while in utero. These newborns experience extreme discomfort, including trouble eating, sleeping, slow weight gain, fever and diarrhea, and need special care. Babies treated for NAS require a lengthy hospital stay, with an average expense of $62 973 for each child.
Rockabye Butterfly is an organization that is committed to raising awareness and funds for NAS in East Tennessee. This amazing group is made up entirely of volunteers, so all proceeds are donated to their local Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
We are so happy to be a small part of the great work that Rockabye Butterfly is doing – and once again, this means providing music for their Annual Rockabye Butterfly Bash.
The event is on Saturday, March 14th at Volunteer Landing, with the ‘Wingin’ It’ 5K run in the morning, and the rest of the festivities carrying on from 12:00-5:00pm. There will be a ‘Kids Krazyland’ with inflatables, arts and crafts, games, prizes, educational booths, face painting, and a dance off – just to name a few things! There will also be an educational speaker that gives a short message about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, before a butterfly release, where live butterflies can be purchased to join in on the release.
Won’t you join us in giving back to Knoxville, and lending a helping hand to those who need it? We’d love to see you down at the 5K run, or just to come hang out and cheer on the rest of the runners! Come and join us at the Rockabye Butterfly Bash on March 14th – visit their website at http://www.rockabyebutterfly.org for more details!
