Snap! Orlando is hosting a catered Mother’s Day Youth Art Reception on Sunday, May 08 from noon-5pm with special guest and “Mother of Honor” Kathy Eldon, who transformed her grief over the death of her son, artist/journalist Dan Eldon, into a celebrated global movement to engage youth in creative artistic expression. Kathy’s award-winning efforts have collaboratively linked her to Oprah Winfrey, President Barack Obama, Julia Roberts, Anderson Cooper, and Hillary Clinton, as well as other creative minds around the world.
Kathy Eldon is an executive producer on Julia Robert’s forthcoming special “Extraordinary Mothers” airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network on Sat, May 07, (while she is here at Snap! Orlando) from 8-9:30 EST
