The FREE event for South LA moms across Districts 8, 9 and 10 included delicious food, live music and dancing. The luncheon was in recognition of the role of mothers and their contributions to society. Attendees on hand also received a commemorative tote bag, potholder and a rose.

“I was fortunate to have an incredible mother as my friend, teacher and role model,” said Councilman Price. “So often the work of mothers is invisible and unappreciated, but we know that they are the foundation of our families, neighborhoods and communities.”
