Recognizing the bonds between parents and their children is a focus for an upcoming event for mothers, guardians, and their daughters on Jan. 30th.
The Unstoppable Mother Daughter Night Out is for mothers, guardians and daughters aged 10 and older, and will feature an evening of mother-daughter related activities and crafts, a fashion show, as well as a keynote speaker.
The event is put on in partnership with CARS (Caring and Resilient Students), the Heartland Youth Centre, and community members who have teamed up to offer a great evening.
“It is a good opportunity for people to come out and connect with their daughters and have some fun,” said Penny Warford, program manager.
Warford says that there will be different tables set up that are mother-daughter related, such as jewelry-making, spa activities and other fun things to do with a goal of building self-care, confidence and connection.
A similar event was done two years ago and Warford says it was well-received.
Unstoppable Mother Daughter Night Out will take place at the Stettler Mall, with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. The keynote speaker will begin at 6:30 p.m.
At 7 p.m. the the event will feature Girl Be You Booty, with the mother-daughter activity fair to be held at 7:30 p.m. The fashion show will kick off at 8:30 p.m. with the event to end at 9 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased for only $5 at the Heartland Youth Centre, CARS office, and Sneakers Plus.
The CARS program, which works to promote positive mental health in children, youth, families and other individuals in the community who interact with children and youth, is one of many Mental Health Capacity Building school projects in Alberta.
CARS operates through Clearview Public Schools and is funded by AHS Provincial Addictions and Mental Health. For more information, contact Penny Warford at 403-740-2275.
