Admittance Friday is by donation only. All donations will be placed in the "Enumclaw's Baby" fund, established at Washington Mutual and managed by a member of the Enumclaw Police Officer's Association. All proceeds will go to meet the baby's immediate needs, and will be collected at the event by Enumclaw's police and fire departments. Donations may also be made at any Washington Mutual Branch to the "Enumclaw's Baby" fund.

The incident came to light last month when police responded to Enumclaw Community Hospital. Staff had reported an infant with serious injuries, which turned out to be broken bones in each arm and one leg. The baby was seven months old at the time.

In the week following, the 18-year-old boyfriend of the baby's mother admitted to police he assaulted the little girl numerous times and was arrested. The girl's 19-year-old mother was arrested for failing to stop her boyfriend and subsequently lying to police to protect him. Both have been jailed since their arrests.
