Ballwin Days 2016 marks the 36th anniversary of the festival’s Pretty Baby contest, an event which has to date raised over $73,500 for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. Since the first contest in 1981, over 2,077 babies have been entered for Pretty Baby honors. A photo of each contestant will be on display in the Pretty Baby tent where family, friends and festival guests can cast their monetary votes.
Each cent donated is counted as one vote, and special prizes are awarded to the four babies receiving the most votes at the closing ceremony on June 12. Cash or checks are accepted. All proceeds raised go directly to Cardinal Glennon. For information and entry instructions, please visit www.ballwindays.com or email Prettybaby@BallwinDays.com. The contest is open to all children age 3 years and under; June 6 is the entry deadline for photos.
