It’s almost the time of year to celebrate mom with Mother’s Day on May 12, 2013.  The idea of Mother’s Day originated in the United States in the early 20th century and become increasingly popularized in the ‘20s.

Mother’s Day is widely celebrated on the second Sunday in May in dozens of countries throughout the world and  many dates in several other countries ranging from late February in some and as late as December in others.  Although the dates may be differ from country to country, one thing remains universal: Mother’s Day is about making mom feel special.

Mother’s Day starts a little early at SoCo and the OC Mix in Costa Mesa with a night of live jazz, food, drinks, raffles, retail discounts and more on Wednesday, May 1 from 6-9 pm.   The evening will benefit charity with 10-15% of sales from participating vendors going to the OC based Working Wardrobes.  Every $20 spent at participating OC Mix stores earns you a chance to win a raffle prize.  Guests can also earn an entry into the raffle with every $10 donation.  The event is free, but an RSVP is required, so be sure to email RSVP@deerlovely.com.
