      A MOTHER OF AN EVENT

      The Women's March of Asbury Park is proud to announce their next  "MOTHER OF AN EVENT"!  A Celebration Women through music, art, and film!  Proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood,  Garden State Equality and LPAC.  These organizations support all women of all backgrounds and needs.  Here is the schedule of events! 4pm  doors open  for an exhibit of 400+ signs collected from The Asbury Park Women's March. 4pm -6pm A cocktail reception will be held on the second floor mezzanine  of the theater. Planned Parenthood,  Garden State Equality and LPAC will be present to provide more information about their organizations and answer questions. 6pm-7pm music by women about women featuring Olympia' Daughters; a local women's a capella  group specializing in songs of protest and empowerment.  7-7:15 intermission  7:15 Screening of the Award Winning Film, Love Wins! A documentary short about to local beloved heroines Jan Moore and Emily Sonnessa.       Love Wins tells the story of Jan (80) and Emily (85), who met and fell in love during a time when doing so was strictly taboo.  During this time they raised a family of 3 children, while living in suburban New Jersey, completely in the closet. Their compelling and at times, humorous story gives a fascinating look in to how gay couples lived double lives, fearing being "outted." 7:45-8:15 Talk show style interview session with Jan, Emily, and Robin Kampf (Award winning producer/director) hosted by Emmy Award WinnIng Actress, Writer, Producer and Comedian Judy Gold!  Join us as we celebrate Jan and Emily's beautiful story and the rights of women of all walks of life on Saturday 5/13,  this Mother's Day weekend.
