LAKE FOREST, IL – As Mother’s Day approaches, local residents are invited to a first-ever “Celebrate Mom!” event, featuring good-for-you foods, one-of-a-kind gifts and even meditation exercises.

This fun and free event, hosted by Residential Homes of America, Inc., Amberley Woods and Coldwell Banker, will take place on Thursday, May 6 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Amberley Woods Condominiums near Route 60 and Conway Farms Drive. Proceeds will support the Waud Family Maternity Services at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital and the replacement of the department’s maternal/fetal monitors.

“This community has a spirit unlike any other, and we feel it’s important to be part of it,” says Ann Danner, President of Residential Homes of America, which developed Amberley Woods. “So we’re uniting with local businesses to celebrate our hometown moms. And with Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s only fitting that event proceeds support maternity care at our community hospital. We are truly blessed to have such an outstanding hospital so close to home.”

The event will also include makeup lessons, tips for healthy living and special Mother’s Day gifts from local vendors. RSVP to the event by calling Kerrie at 847.482.0600.
