Mother’s Choice Gala Dinner 2019
Under the Sea was the theme of the annual Mother’s Choice fundraising dinner, which was held inside the ballroom of the JW Marriott hotel—with over 500 people in attendance and many sporting nautical ensembles. The evening's theme ties in with their key message for 2019, Hope Anchors. Alia Eyres, Mother’s Choice chief executive officer explained, “At Mother’s Choice we work in the midst of crisis, stepping into the darkest moment of someone’s story, and we give them hope,” she says, “hope is an anchor that provides the courage to grow and heal through the storms of life’s trials and adversity.” Founded in 1987, Mother’s Choice was initially started by a small group of volunteers concerned with the plight of the city’s single teenagers and underprivileged families coping with an unexpected pregnancy. Today, Mother’s Choice continues to help those in need throughout the community to transform the lives of young girls, babies, and special needs children and their families.
