PAWTUCKET MOTHER-TO-BE ORGANIZES RED CROSS INFANT & CHILD CPR PARTY

WHAT
Move over Tupperware, CPR is the new reason for this mother-to-be to gather her girlfriends for the evening. Lisa Davis and several of her friends will gather for a party and also get certified in Infant and Child CPR.

WHO
Davis, a Pawtucket mother of 4 and 2 year olds, is expecting her third child in December 2005.

WHY
Davis signed up for CPR several years ago when her oldest son was on the way, but he was born three weeks early, so she missed the class. "I decided to have a CPR party because if it's at my own house, I'll be sure to make it," Davis says. "I invited my girlfriends, and some of them are even bringing their husbands and nannies."

WHEN
Tuesday, August 9, 2005
6:00 p.m. 9:00 p.m. (Video/audio/photo opportunities during entire event.)

WHERE
Pawtucket, RI

In Fiscal Year 2004, The American Red Cross Rhode Island Chapter taught 19,411 Rhode Islanders vital life saving skills like CPR and first aid, in our communities and workplaces. Over 2,961 Rhode Islanders have learned to swim or become a lifeguard and 458 youngsters learned lifesaving skills through Babysitter's Training.  The RI Red Cross taught 2,338 courses this past fiscal year!
