Under these extraordinary times, we have decided to cancel this year’s fundraiser. Thankfully, our keynote speaker, Peggy Orenstein, has graciously agreed to be the speaker for our next Mother Day’s Luncheon so we will present the same event planned for this year next May in 2021. We are saddened by this difficult decision, but your safety is our priority and we are committed to doing our part. We’re in this together! Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the coronavirus.

“Arise then, women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!”
Mother’s Day began as a cry for peace by Julia Ward Howe in 1870.
Here at Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP), we arise every day to help those torn apart by violence in the home and in relationships. We see the destruction that it can cause, and we see the tenacity and spirit of those who come to us to better their lives. We believe in the power of the individual and the importance of mothering peace in our community.
The In Celebration of Mothers luncheon honors the mothers who give us life and honors all who give life to hope, equality, love, justice and peace. It brings together our community, both men and women, in celebration of these ideals, and raises funds to support C4DP’s life-giving work.
This event plans to be a festive and inspiring event with specially themed raffle baskets, a silent auction with over 80 items to bid on from Pixar Tours, winery escapes, jewelry, fine art, and much much more, and many added surprises!
