Once again, Cool Mom Picks was so happy to support our friends at Baby Buggy on June 4 at the annual Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash in Central Park, and helping them to raise close to $500,000 for at-risk families with young children in need.

Wow, did the celebs come out this year, all with their adorable kids.

[see lots of fun pics after the jump!]

Cool Mom Picks and Mom Trends together sponsored the face painting and glitter tattoo booth and wow, were there some amazing works of art that came out of our booth!

Plus, we were so happy to see so many friends of Cool Mom Picks there (thanks for coming and saying hi, readers!) plus much blogger support from the likes of Rebecca Gruber of PopSugar Moms; Lance Somerfeld and Matt Schneider of the NYC Dads Group, Lyss Stern of Divalysscious Moms, Jessica Shyba of Mommas Gone City, and of course, our amazing partner Nicole Feliciano and the whole MomTrends team.

It was also nice to say hi to sponsor friends like Britax/BOB, Mrs. Myers Clean Day, and Plum Organics.

(Apologies, Plum, that my daughter tried to stuff her pockets with all the Yo’Drops samples. She really really likes them!)

But maybe the best part–besides managing to pedal a flying ride into the air for my six year-old in heels without losing one–was getting to chat with some of the VIP guests from the Fathers First Program in the Rockaways, who are among the many families that Baby Buggy serves. I asked one little boy his favorite part of the carnival and he didn’t even have to think about the answer: “EVERYTHING!”

Kudos to founder Jessica Seinfeld, everyone at Baby Buggy (Aubree Oakes, you’re a genius), and anyone who came out to make the fundraiser a big success. We’re already looking forward to topping it next year. –Liz + Kristen
