11th Annual Mother's Day Luncheon April 26

Mother's Day Luncheon

On April 26th, we honored Nan Drake and remembered Helen A. Olson for their tireless dedication to their families and to their communities. Over 180 guests paid tribute to these two amazing women at the 11th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon at the Los Posas Country Club.

Nan’s son Peter Drake shared touching and humorous anecdotes about his mother and long-time friend Elena Brokawspoke of the many ways in which Nan has mentored women.

Helen’s daughter, Eloise Cohen, lovingly shared the story of her parent’s 69-year relationship as well as the history of her mother’s journey to define her role as “first lady of California Lutheran University.” Lynda Fulford, a former CLU student told of Helen’s impact on the university and Mary Olson recalled her memories of Helen — a women who clearly touched the lives of so many people during her lifetime of over 100 years.

Thank you to our sponsors, donors and honoree families for making this event a success. All funds raised at the event help Ventura County residents recuperate, recover, or simply maintain a safe lifestyle in their home.
