“I Remember Mama” Alliance on Aging Celebration Day at Carousel Candies on Saturday, May 3rd
On Saturday, May 3rd from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the community will also enjoy receiving free delicious foil-wrapped chocolate baby roses at Carousel Candies in honor of Mother’s Day and “I Remember Mama” from several cute young “Mother’s Little Helpers” and 20% of sales will be donated to Alliance on Aging.
During the month of May, all Carousel Candies customers will receive 20% off of their purchases in the store or when buying in the online store if they mention the “I Remember Mama/Alliance on Aging” promotion.
“On Mother’s Day, it’s a perfect time to show our appreciation of our wonderful Mothers who can never receive enough thoughtful displays of our affection for their very special love and dedication!” says Liz and Rick Elves, co-owners of Carousel Candies. “This year, we are thrilled to team up with Alliance on Aging’s compassionate “I Remember Mama” program. Alliance on Aging’s array of programs make such an important difference to thousands of seniors and their families in our community!”
During May, there will be a special contest to guess the number of pastel-colored jelly beans in a glass jar to win a $50 gift certificate to Carousel Candies, which is often featured on the A & E History Channel. There will also be a drawing for a special one-night Mother’s Day Package at Lover’s Point Inn Hotel in Pacific Grove (the Elves’ other love) that includes a large box of homemade Mother’s Day assorted chocolates in the suite.

About Alliance on Aging’s I Remember Mama
For the 20th year, Ombudsman, a program of the Alliance on Aging is celebrating Mother's Day with I Remember Mama. Through this program, over 1100 elderly women living in local nursing homes and long-term care facilities will receive beautiful, blooming plants on Mother's Day weekend, May 10th and May 11th. A donation of $35.00 will provide for one plant to be personally delivered by a community volunteer. Donors may select a specific woman in a long term care facility to be honored or make a donation in tribute to a loved one, or simply show your support by gifting one or more plants to women throughout our community. Donations and volunteers help make I Remember Mama possible. To make a donation or volunteer to deliver plants, please call 831-655-1334 or 831-758-4011 or mail your tax-deductible donation to the Alliance on Aging, Inc. 247 Main St. Salinas, CA 93901 or visit the website at www.allianceonaging.org.
