Special Needs Awareness and Advocacy 

It was described at the best day in 2020! Carol, aka as daMotivatedMom got married to the love of her life, Leonard Simmons, in a beautiful socially distant ceremony on August 1, 2020, at the LaSalle Theatre. Family and friends enjoyed the ceremony and the reception that followed. Guests enjoyed a wonderful socially distant buffet dinner catered by Vi’s Catering and served safely by Chicks N Sips, who also tended the bar. A beautiful cupcake tree with 12 assortments of cupcakes were provided by A Cookie and A Cupcake, along with sweet treats by Temika. The Mike Austin Band entertained guests with all our favorites. Photography was provided by Gerald Hawley, and Video was provided by R. Zellars Photography. Special thanks to Rev. Smith, to those who traveled from out of town, our parents and family, the Matron of Honor, cousin Janeen, and best friend Angie, who made the day complete. Thanks to all those who attended, it was an unforgettable day!
