If you want to spend some relaxing time with your mom, but your Mother’s Day is already filled with activities, Hartland Bible Church is hosting a Spa Night fundraiser, “ ‘Toon’ into Wellness For Mothers and Daughters,” from 7 to 9 p.m. May 17 in the church’s Fellowship hall, 8110 West Ave., Gasport.
Moms and daughters can spend the evening getting pampered with a variety of spa services, including hair design, manicures, massages, and nutritional information. Speakers will be Mercedes Holloway, founder of For Our Daughters Inc., www.forourdaughters.info and Ami Patrick of embodyhealthandwellness.com.
The event and services are offered free, but donations are encouraged. All money raised will go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Tipping is also encouraged, and all ladies are welcome.
If your mom loves the ocean and all its sea creatures, consider giving the the gift of a close-up and personal sea lion or penguin encounter at the Aquarium of Niagara. For $75 mom will get 15 minutes with a sweet little penguin all dolled up in its own natural tuxedo, or she can get a whiskery kiss from a sea lion.
The watery encounter will make for a family adventure that mom will remember long after her shoes dry. For more information visit www.aquariumofniagara.org or call 285-3575 ext. 214.
If you and mom would like an outing that’s a little more adult, consider “Mom’s Night Out,” from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday at Wine on Third in Niagara Falls. The upscale wine bar and restaurant will feature chocolate tastings, cosmos, and even a little shopping with jewelry and bath and body products. Every mom will get a free ticket for a raffle and there will be live music by Jamie Holka.
Call the restaurant, which is located at 501 Third St., at 245-4147.Sunday Lifestyle editor Danielle Haynes, and features editors Anne Calos and Michele DeLuca contributed to this story. Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
