Wilmington Club Teens Celebrate Mother’s Day
Alma de Oro Ballet Folklorico of Carson which some of our younger
Club members are part of, performed at our Mother’s Day Celebration.
We often have celebrations at our Clubs to honor the accomplishments of our youth, but it’s a very special day when our youth honor the people who support them. On May 9, our Wilmington Club High School Center members, part of the Keystone leadership group, held their annual Mother’s Day Celebration. They raised funds to host a special banquet and live show for their families including entertainment by Mariachi Mendez and Alma de Oro Ballet Folklorico. Our Wilmington teens decided to extend Cinco de Mayo festivities with a “Fiesta” theme for this year’s Mother’s Day Celebration which 150 attended. When the live mariachi performers surprised the families midway through dinner, youth members approached their mothers with a rose to express their love and appreciation. Some youth, whose mothers could not attend, honored a mentor, friend or one of the staff members at our Club, like Director Hilda Chacon, who has made a difference in their lives.
