Carousel Designs and Sarah Michelle Gellar hosted a baby shower for 40 military moms-to-be during the PGA TOUR’s 2012 Northern Trust Open with Emmy Award-winning actress Sarah Michelle Gellar helped 40 military moms-to-be experience what many expectant women may take for granted – a baby shower. The moms, whose spouses are deployed members of Naval Base Ventura County, were honored during an Operation Shower group baby shower hosted by Gellar on Wednesday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Birdies for the Brave® Patriots’ Outpost presented by the Annenberg Foundation located on the 10th green at Riviera Country Club during the Northern Trust Open.
“For military wives who are expecting a baby and whose spouses are deployed or soon to be deployed, the impending arrival of a child can be both exciting and stressful,” said Operation Shower Founder and Chief Shower Officer LeAnn Morrissey. “Operation Shower was created specifically because typically military moms are the ones who hold it all together at home. Without their spouses by their side, deployed to another part of the world, these moms deserve our support, our thanks, our love and an opportunity to celebrate together.”
