BWUN 2019 Pre-Mother’s Day Dinner

Shine Your Light!

Do not let the name fool you…this event is about honoring all of the mothers in your life. Bring a friend, sister, neighbor, or child. Pet moms are honored, too.
This year we are running a contest to hear from you about the most influential mom in your life…she does not have to be your own mom, but someone who influenced you. You can send a short essay to us at prior to May 1 and the winner will be read aloud at the dinner with $50 being donated to the charity of your choice.
The ticket includes the meal, book by the author, and some small tchotchkes. Limited sponsorships are available, too.
Our silent auction proceeds will be donated to Women in Bloom and La Casa de Amistad in South Bend. La Casa de Amistad is a charitable organization that functions as a community center on the west side of South Bend.
It was founded by Fr. John Phalen in October of 1973 as a youth outreach program in response to the many needs of area Hispanic teenagers.
La Casa now offers varied programs in an effort to edify Hispanic youth and adults in development of leadership skills, increase knowledge and appreciation of their own culture, and develop stronger self-esteem, encouraging fuller participation as community members.
Our speaker this year is author, Elisabeth Simeri. Elisabeth Simeri
is an artist & coach & explorer. She’s passionate about inspiring people to (re)discover what lights them up helping people live bright
is how she puts her passion to work.
Each attendee will receive a book entitled, “The World Needs Me”. We are asking you to consider mentoring a young woman of your choice and reading this book alongside her and gifting the book.
Tickets are $42.00 BWUN Members/$47.00 Non-Members – purchase here. Tickets are limited to fifty (50) attendees. If you would like to donate a silent auction item, please contact us at
Past recipients of the silent auction proceeds include: Worthy Women Recovery, Caring Place, St. Jude’s, Lakeshore Paws, Patriots Training Service Dogs, Valparaiso Women’s Association, and Women in Bloom.
