Assemblyman Hosts Event to Inspire Excellence among Women and Stress the Importance of Strong Parental Roles in the Community
(Jersey City) – In a continuing effort to encourage strong, healthy relationships between moms and their daughters, Assemblyman Charles Mainor will host the 5th Annual “Planting a Seed of Faith” dinner on Thursday, August 28 in Jersey City. This year’s theme “Faith without Fear,” celebrates the invaluable bond shared between a mother and her daughter (s). Attendees will be invited to share inspirational stories and life experiences.
“It seems today that many families have veered off track when it comes down to instilling important family values and spending quality time with their children,” said Mainor (D-Hudson). “This event is a testament to the spirit of unity expressed in the adage which says it takes a village to raise a child. Women from all walks of life will dine together, inspire and empower each other through the sharing of life-long wisdom.”
The Planting a Seed of Faith dinner is one of two annual events Assemblyman Mainor sponsors to underscore the importance of parental engagement in the lives of youth and in the community. Ties that Bond is held in July and focuses on strengthening father and son relationships.
“When a community comes together purposefully to raise each other up, families become stronger and individuals are more devoted to achieving excellence for the greater good of their neighborhoods and the next generation,” Mainor added.
The 5th Annual Planting a Seed of Faith Dinner will be held on Thursday, August 28 at the Mary Bethune Center, 140 Martin Luther King, Dr. in Jersey City. The event begins at 6 p.m.
