  • Updated

MAIA, a nonprofit organization helping single mothers and their families, is sponsoring a Mother’s Day Celebration on Sunday.

Organizers say the event is designed to be fun and economical.

The fundraiser will include fashion, photography, arts and crafts, sweets and more. The money raised will help single mothers get job training and meet other needs.

“There are great gifts for Mom from More Than a Label, a fashion boutique offering upscale consignment clothes, jewelry and accessories with nothing over $10,” says Trudy Mercy Brown, chairwoman.

Fashion picks by Charleston Magazine style director Ayoka Lucas also will be modeled. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on Lucas’ selected trend pieces.
