Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards held ¾ of a Seinfeld reunion at a benefit lunch on Wednesday. Julia Louis Dreyfus was the only regular cast member of the show to be absent.
The three stars were all in attendance at the inaugural Los Angeles Fatherhood Lunch benefiting Baby Buggy at the Palm Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California.
Former “Seinfeld” writer Spike Feresten was also there and he posted a picture of Jerry, George and Kramer on Instagram with the caption, “It’s a Seinfeld reunion at #BabyBuggyFatherhoodFantastic event and charity. @[email protected] #CarMatchmaker.”
In a speech at the lunch Jerry Seinfeld said, “I was honored to share this day with amazing fathers whom I also call friends. The work that Baby Buggy does is instrumental in a father’s life, and in the lives of their children, and I am grateful that so many people came out to support it.”
Baby Buggy works with a network of over 100 community-based organizations across the country to distribute new and gently used essentials: from cribs and strollers to clothing and bottles, all of which are vetted for safety.
The organization distributes product through a network of 100+ carefully-selected community-based organizations that complete a rigorous screening and application process. Each month, community partners submit a request for the items they need for the families they serve. Based on available inventory, Baby Buggy does our best to fill these requests, providing approximately 150, 000 items each month.
Baby Buggy’s product distributions are combined with comprehensive social service assistance, such as job training, financial literacy classes, and parenting support & education. They are often used as an incentive tool by CBOs to encourage parents to take steps that will help them keep their children safe, healthy, and happy.
For example: A mom receives a stroller after demonstrating that she has opened an education savings account for her child. A father receives a crib after participating in a 16-week fatherhood program that includes completing an infant CPR class and a healthy relationship workshop.
By making donations through proven programs like Nurse-Family Partnership, high-quality Fatherhood programs, and Early Head Start, Baby Buggy is not just providing immediate assistance to families in need, but providing the tools and programs parents need to build their self-sufficiency over the long-term.
