The Light Radio Station (1340AM, 103.5 FM) will host a Mother’s Day dinner celebration. This event marks 22 years of serving moms, mothers, and  mother figures in the Triad. This event will start at noon at The Enterprise Conference and Event Center located at 1922 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. 

“We celebrate mothers while they are yet alive. So many moms don’t have families to love on them. They are alone or children just don’t give them any love until they are  gone,” said Anita “Boss Lady” Dean Arnette, radio personality and founder of the event.

This event starts off as a radio contest. The families are to mail a written letter to the radio station and the deadline to enter is April 30. There is a committee of judges that read the letters and determine the winners. The winners of the contest are announced at the dinner.  

Each year there is a theme paired to a gospel song. This year’s theme is: A Mother Will Always  Provide. The song paired with the theme is from the gospel song “Jehovah Jireh” by Jekalyn Carr.  

The winner is crowned Mother of The Year. Prizes are also available for first, second and third runners-up. Every woman who attends the dinner is given a prize. Each year the mayor of Winston Salem, Allien Joines, attends. 

“This year makes 22 years. We started off with about four or 10 people in the  conference room. Now we have invited about 150 people. We are so excited to see  our wonderful mothers after two years of halting the event due to COVID,”  said Anita “Boss Lady” Dean Arnette. 

Please feel free to contact Dean Arnette concerning this event at 336-480-2039 or email
