CMOM Spring Benefit 2012

CMOM Spring Benefit 2012

Thank you to our Supporters and Partners for making our 2012 Spring Benefit a huge success!

More than 350 people joined CMOM for night of celebration at the Metropolitan Pavilion to help raise $800,000 to support CMOM’s outreach programming and critical work to provide access to low-income families.

It is not too late to join in this outpouring of generosity and excitement. We raised $66,000 to provide FREE access to the Museum's educational exhibits and programs for 6,500 Head Start families all across the city. Our goal is to reach 10,000 Head Start children and their parents.

Please help CMOM meet its goal by making a contribution today!
