PRO EM teams up with Operation Shower & the WM Phoenix Open to host a baby shower for military moms-to-be 

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (February 4, 2024) – In collaboration with the PGA TOUR’s WM Phoenix Open and through the generosity of PRO EM National Event Services, the nonprofit Operation Shower will host a baby shower for 35 military moms-to-be on Tuesday, February 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Patriots’ Outpost – located on the 18th hole tee box at TPC Scottsdale. All of the expectant moms are the spouses or partners of deployed military members from area bases, or in some cases are active-duty military members themselves. Emmy Award winning journalist and Good Morning Arizona News Anchor Tess Rafols will serve as the event’s guest host and emcee, with CMSgt Markiesha Crawford, Senior Enlisted Leader, 56th Medical Group, Luke Air Force Base, participating as a guest speaker. 

Taking place during the WM Phoenix Open for the 12th year, the “Grown with Love” event will feature a catered lunch, guest speakers, raffle prizes and the distribution of Operation Shower’s signature “Showers In A  Box”: gifts of high-quality products for mothers and babies that have been generously donated by in-kind sponsors including WM; Discover HMV Group (Honoring Military & Veterans); Diaper Genie; Romp & Roost; 4Moms; MudPie; and Delta Children. 

“For expectant women whose spouses are deployed, and especially those who are on active duty, the impending arrival of a child can be both exciting and stressful,” said Operation Shower Founder and Chief Shower Officer LeAnn Morrissey. “Operation Shower was created to provide these extraordinary women with love, support, and an opportunity to celebrate this wonderful milestone together.”
