Warwick — Bink, a new baby boutique, will hold a grand opening from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17, as a benefit for the Kennedy Birthing Center at St. Anthony Community Hospital. Diane DeFreest, nurse manager of obstetrics and gynecology at the center, will be on hand to answer new moms' questions about breast feeding. Proceeds from a raffle and a percentage of sales during the grand opening will go to the birthing center. In August, Rick and Maura Peddle, the owners of Bink, were escorted on a special tour of the birthing center by DeFreest and Leah Cerkvenik, executive vice president and administrator of St. Anthony Community Hospital. The store is located at 22 Railroad Ave. in Warwick. For more information, call 988-2465.
