Have you picked out a gift for that special mama in your life yet? Why not step outside the box this Mother’s Day (May 12), and get Mom a little something different?
1. What’s cooler than having your very own tree in Prospect Park? For $75, Mom will have a woodlands restoration sapling planted, and for $100 she can be included in the communal arbor day tree planting, scheduled to take place on April 25, 2014. All tree sponsorships will receive a recognition gift certificate (shown above) in the mail, and as long as your order is placed by noon on Friday, May 10, you’ll have an electronic certificate mailed to you by close of business on Friday. Orders can be placed online, by printing out and returning this order form , or calling (718) 965-8965.
2. How about a night of theatre? Gallery Players (199 14th Street, between 4th and 5th Ave) has tickets remaining for their final weekend of Dreamgirls performances (June 17 – 19). Tickets are $18 general admission, $14 for seniors, and $14 for children 12 and under. For more information, visit their website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Let Mom connect with some of “the most colorful and influential women of the 19th and early 20th centuries” on the afternoon before Mother’s Day with Green-Wood’s Mother’s Day Trolley Tour. The tour, led by veteran Green-Wood tour guide Ruth Edebohls, is $10 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members and $15 for non-members.
