PAM Jam Florida First Coast will present Mayday for Moms from 1 to 5 p.m. May 1 at 137 King St., St. Augustine. The event celebrates “the arts, Mother Earth and mothers in Heaven and on Earth.”
Participating venues include ArtBox Gallery, Butterfield Garage Art Gallery and WildHeart Boutique. The event will benefit local organizations that help “moms in distress”: Matanzas Riverkeeper Litter Gitter and hopefullhandbags.org and the Two TitMice Vodka Foundation, through which the Carol Whitney Green Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a local poet, artist or musician battling breast cancer and facing financial hardship.
The event will feature music from Sisters Caragh & Camille and jazz band Teal Cabana Club; poetry readings by Natalie Beltrami, Patricia Konover, Lee Weaver and others; original poetry and artwork, clothing, jewelry and more for sale; a meet and greet with live models; PAM Jam videos; and a gift raffle.
For a $5 donation or a handbag filled with necessities for Hopefull Handbags, attendees will receive a raffle ticket for Heart for the MayPole. For a $20 donation or a receipt from ABC Fine Wine & Spirits for a bottle of Two TitMice Vodka, attendees will receive five raffle tickets.
Those who cannot attend the event can donate to the fundraisers at pam-jam.com.
