The Tenth Annual Mother’s Day Ball

January 28, 2020


After much consideration, and in keeping with the guidelines issued by the CDC, the Emily K Center Mother’s Day Ball will not be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020. The health and well-being of our students, supporters, staff, and volunteers is of the utmost importance to us, and we could not in good conscience move forward with the event, no matter how much we may wish we could. 

The Mother’s Day Ball is an incredibly important event for the Center, bringing in nearly 25 percent of our programming revenue for the entire year. Though we are not able to host the Ball in 2020, our programs are still operational and our students (more than 2,000!) need us now more than ever. 

We know that now may not be the right time for everyone to give, but if you are able to make a gift in support of our students and the Mother’s Day Ball, we would be most appreciative. With your support, you will help us continue to provide our students with the tools and support they need to achieve their dreams of college.
