A Casa Bella bowling party
A Casa Bella Transitional Housing will host a bowling party June 5 from 1 -4 pm at AMF Pembroke Pines Lanes, 1940 North University Drive, Pembroke Pines, 33024. Proceeds from this event will benefit A Casa Bella, which provides homes for women and children with nowhere else to go. I was at A Casa Bella's Mother's Day event earlier this month and was moved by the stories of women who find themselves homeless after a divorce or financial upheaval. They produced a great video about these heroines (watch the trailer) that illustrates the need for housing assistance in our community. (I was also happy to see HSC friends Martena Johnson and Amina Rodriguez honored for their dedication to parenting.) Tickets to the bowling party are $15.00. RSVP's requested.Martena Johnson with her daughter at the A Casa Bella Mother's Day event May 1. Martena is a Parent Leadership Training Institute grad and an A Casa Bella honoree.
