Babies by the Sea benefit set

Babies by the Sea Birthing Center will hold a fundraiser to benefit the work of Seaside Giving from 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 10 at Martin Lawrence Galleries, 1111 Prospect.

The $150 donation at the door will entitle patrons to write a message on a recycled brown glass leaf to be displayed on the “tree” in the lobby of the new birthing center. The tree was commissioned by artist Robert Verhees. In addition to an art auction, guests will be treated to appetizers, wine, music and more. R.S.V.P. at
