Walking in, there were mothers and their daughters everywhere, laughing and talking, and having a fun time. This annual tradition called the Mother-Daughter Brunch had another successful year at gathering mothers and their daughters to have fun time together. It has become an event that the Lady Mustangs have come to look forward to. This year, the brunch took place on Saturday, March 19th and the event was held from 10:00am until 12:00pm.
“It came into existence when it was realized that there was something at BMHS for father-daughter, father-son, and mother-son but not for mother-daughter,” according to Mrs. Bernadette McClain. The tickets, which were $15 per person, went on sale on February 28th and ticket sales closed on March 11th.
According to Ms. Bernadette McClain, “The brunch begins with a prayer service that contemplates and sanctifies the special relationship that mothers and daughters share. The brunch concludes with thoughts from a guest speaker, this year’s being Ms. Triscina Grey-Ortiz (mother of Vania Brown ‘12) who is a DJ at 96.3 WHUR,” according to Ms. Bernadette McClain.
Mrs. McClain has been the event’s chair coordinator for the past three years. “I am grateful to Mrs. Alice Case in Development for her involvement in the success of the brunch,” she said. For its first year at McNamara, there was no chair. “It was more of a group effort during its first year.”
When commenting on the Brunch, Mrs. McClain said, “The Mother-Daughter Brunch has quickly become a favorite tradition here at BMHS and I am happy that our Lady Mustangs have this opportunity to pray and spend time together.”
