Over the past several years Erica Schlaefer (Parenthood for Me President) and Dr. Rob Kiltz (CNY Fertility & Healing Arts Director) have worked together to further their common goals: helping to educate and fund couples and individuals striving to build a family.
Parenthood for me will be holding their Annual Gala – Sponsored by CNY Fertility and Healing Arts – on Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 6:30-10:30PM. The event will take place at The Inn on Broadway located on 26 Broadway, Rochester, New York.
The Annual Gala is PFM’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The money raised goes directly to fund the grants. PFM awarded $24,000 in 2013 to 6 couples. In order to continue helping people building their families they need your support. There are many ways to donate including purchasing tickets, sponsorships, and donating items to the silent auction.

About Parenthood for Me:
Parenthood for Me is a national 501 c(3) non-profit. The mission is to provide emotional support, educational tools, and financial support to those adopting or pursuing Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to try and conceive. We hope to ease some of the burden bestowed on people who desperately want to be parents. PFM offers grants to those in need of financial assistance to fund and adoption or ART procedures.
The founders, AJ and Erica Schlaefer tried for several years to conceive through ART. They now have two adopted sons from Korea. And after nine years of trying to conceive, Erica is currently 31 weeks pregnant- an unexpected miracle.
