Mother’s Tea— Mamma Mia!

There can be many passions found in Italian culture. But, near the top of any list, are their love of
food and the reverence they hold dear to sweet Mamma! And, so too, will you fi nd these passions
celebrated at this year’s 12th Annual CP of Colorado Mother’s Tea. While the Italian theme of this
year’s event is sure to add some pizzazz, it is the purpose that we gather that gives it its heart. This
remarkable celebration is all about recognizing the spirit and devotion of some very special moms.
Held in the grand ballroom of The Westin Denver Downtown, this year’s Mother’s Tea will feature a
a lavish champagne reception, a sumptuous luncheon, Broadway style musical entertainment, and
a very special mother and child fashion show presented by The GAP. The event will conclude with
announcing the winners of pamper packages for six, community-nominated, very deserving mothers.
These elegantly prepared packages, which include spa services, dinner and an overnight getaway, are
the perfect gift for mothers, who so often place the needs of their children ahead of their own.

Deserving of Special Recognition

One of the more endearing sentiments coming from the Italian language is, “Amor
di madre, amore senza limiti.” Translated to English, it means “A mother’s love
has no limits.” At CP of Colorado, we witness daily the remarkable sacrifi ces
and incredible difference that mothers make in the lives of their children with
special needs. The daily challenges they face are uniquely diverse in the care
and upbringing of their children. Their lives often revolve around medical
appointments, special therapies and advocating for the inclusion of their children
in the educational system and throughout their communities. Their stories
of motherhood demonstrate the selfl ess and extraordinary commitment,
love and sacrifi ce that help their children overcome t h e
daily challenges they face. For mothers able to
attend the luncheon, Mother’s Tea is a chance
we say, “salute!”
for them to share in the company and experience
of fellow moms and to be honored and celebrated by
others in attendance for all they do on behalf of their
children. Whether Italian, or not, to mother’s everywhere, we say, “salute!”

Sponsorship of the Mother’s Tea is a wonderful expression
of thanks and recognition for these exceptional moms. Your
support not only helps mothers attend the event, but also is
used to help fund CP of Colorado’s six, family-driven grassroots
organizations within Statewide Family Support Services. Last
year, these services helped 36,350 individuals and families
connect in a way that helps to create systems change, share
critical resources and provide lifetime support and connections
with each other.
