Mother’s Day Brunch + Concert to Benefit Victims of Domestic Violence
Co-owner and co-director of Gateway City Arts Lori Divine-Hudson told Western Mass News that while this is a day to celebrate, it is also a day to bring awareness to women who are victims of domestic violence. She said that proceeds from the benefit concert will go towards Safe Passage.
“Everyone is not celebrating,” she told us. “We want to stand with those people who are having issues in their lives. It’s crucial for us; this is part of the reason why we began Gateway City Arts.”
Divine-Hudson, who is a proud mother and grandmother, also touched on what the holiday means to her.
“There is nothing more important to me than my kids and my grandkids,” she said. “Other people have the joy and pleasure and the heartache that kids can bring.”
