Zaman International, an Inkster-based humanitarian organization that provides urgent needs and job skills training for impoverished women with children, will host a Mother’s Day “Destination Hope Brunch” on Sunday, May 6, at Crystal Gardens in Southgate to raise money for its programs. The annual women-only event, which goes from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature a raffle for more than 90 gift baskets, and a “marketplace” to shop for locally made products.
A highlight of the annual brunch are the raffle baskets, filled with kitchen items, spa experiences, home décor, children’s games, and more. Guests can purchase $1 raffle tickets to win baskets valued up to $400 or $5 tickets to win baskets worth more than $450. Guests can also purchase $10 raffle tickets to vie for the grand prize.
“Women are so important to the work that Zaman does, and this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them,” said Monica Boomer, director of community engagement and volunteerism for Zaman. “We are encouraging mothers, daughters, grandmothers, nieces, aunts and all the other special women in our community to treat themselves to this fun and relaxing event.”
Tickets for the brunch are $50 per person and can be purchased at zamaninternational.org. All proceeds benefit Zaman’s programs, which include the provision of food, clothing and furniture to high-need families, sewing and literacy instruction, and dignified infant burial.
