Newtown, CT Beautiful Baby Photo Contest Giavanna Dentice, 8 months, was the first baby entered in this year's Beautiful Baby Photo Contest. She is held by her mom, Mary Dentice, in front of the Voting Booth with her entry photo in the #1 slot. This contest is an annual fundraiser for Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), a non-profit that builds handicap housing for severely disabled young military personnel at no charge to the soldier.
Contestants are being soughtnow for this friendly competition, which begins at the Sandy Hook Firehouse's Lobsterfest on June 8th & 9th, and then travels to Stop & Shop, Sand Hill Plaza for 2 weeks. The child need not live in Newtown. The child whose photo raises the most amount of money for HFOT gets their photo published in the Newtown Bee, a Family Fun prize basket, and ride as the Beautiful Baby Winner in Newtown’s Labor Day Parade in a chauffeur driven convertible provided by Mercedes Benz of Danbury.
To enter your child's photo (newborn - 4 years old), send a non-returnable 4"x4" or wallet photo, with the child's name and contact phone # written clearly on the back, and a $10 check made payable to "Homes for Our Troops" to Beautiful Baby; C/O Lois Barber; 33 Zoar Road; Sandy Hook, CT 06482
