The day after Mothers Day we had a “Mothering the Mother” luncheon in the Pacific Palisades, California, hosted by CMomA board member , M.D. On that day, we honored the Moms who give so much, each and every day, to raising their beautiful children. We celebrated them with a delicious feast, pampering services from gifted practitioners, and inspiration by wonderful speakers such as the very special Kristine Carlson (author of her most recent book Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms and the powerful luminary Mary Mann Morrissey. We raised $35,000 that day for CMomA from the event’s ticket sales, silent auction and generous offering of support from donations and from our four new $5000 founding donors!
We now have as our intention to have this “Mothering the Mother” event each year in various cities the Monday after Mother’s day. Please feel free to contact Marcy@CMomA.org if you are interested in planning and hosting next year’s event in your city!
For our Summer Event in July, CMomA founder Marcy Cole’s sister Barbara Lee hosted a luncheon/trunk show in support of CMomA in Aspen, Colorado. It was such a delight to begin to share our vision and mission with some of the wonderful women in this community!
Maya Angelou once said that “Giving Liberates the Soul of the Giver“. The outpouring of support from so many in our first nine months is truly serving as the wind beneath our wings. We know this to be a mutual blessing and look forward to sharing more of CMomA’s unfolding with all of you!
