Motherhood: A Lifetime Achievement Award Luncheon

Tuesday, May 24, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

San Antonio Can High School, a nonprofit dropout recovery charter high school serving youth in need, will celebrate Judy Cavender for her outstanding contributions to the community at their 13th annual San Antonio Motherhood: Lifetime Achievement Award Luncheon on May 24th at 11 a.m. at San Antonio Country Club. The luncheon recognizes women who are dedicated community leaders who volunteer and give back to the community. Proceeds from the event will benefit the students of San Antonio Can High School, a campus of Texans Can Academies. The San Antonio Motherhood Luncheon began in 2004 as a tribute to active community volunteers who are also mothers. The proceeds from the annual fundraiser benefit the students of San Antonio Can High School who often require support beyond the classroom. Texans Can Academies believe helping these students earn their high school diplomas is critical to breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty and illiteracy.
