KAMLOOPS — Even though Mother's Day was last weekend, a local group believes moms can always use some more appreciation.

The annual community Mother's Day celebration takes place at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help hall this Saturday evening (May 14).

Manpreet Joshi helped organize the event, along with Jesse Sangha.

Joshi says it's a chance for mothers and daughters from all over the community to participate in East Indian culture.

"It's for everybody who wants to enjoy the culture, the colours, the celebration. It's for all mother and daughters, not just for East Indians, but it is based on the culture. Whoever is interested and wants to explore, everybody is most welcome," said Joshi.

"Ladies from around town come and there are East Indian dances, folk dance performance, food. It's lots of fun for ladies."

Tickets are available through Joshi and Sangha, with proceeds going to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation.

To buy tickets, contact Joshi at 778-257-5508 or Sangha at 250-319-1985.
