DENVER (CBS4) – Some special mothers dined in style at Strings restaurant this Mother’s Day.
Strings teamed up with the Volunteers of America’s Meals on Wheels program to treat 175 women to a Mother’s Day banquet. The women invited to the event don’t have any family in the area.
Those who attended say it’s a great tradition.
“I’m just really happy to be here another year to be able to be a part of this celebration,” mother Claudette Sweet said. “We want to thank Strings for putting on this breakfast for us.”
“That’s the most beautiful thing in the world, is being a mom,” mother Gladys White said.
It was the 20th year for the Mother’s Day banquet.
The mothers also went home with chocolates and flowers. Metro Taxi gave them rides to and from Strings at no charge.
