Emerge! 11th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheonby Carolyn Classen on May. 06, 2012, under Life, Politics
Emerge! 2012 Mother’s Day Luncheon
Emerge! serves mothers who would go to the end of the earth to protect their children. Each year we choose one mother, a mother who has displayed exceptional courage and strength. At our Mother’s Day Luncheon we tell her story, and celebrate her bravery.
Award winning editorial cartoonist for the Arizona Daily Star David Fitzsimmons will be our Emcee and is offering caricatures before the event for $25 each. All proceeds will benefit Emerge!
We need you to help us celebrate!
