NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A special celebration was held in Norfolk Sunday for single mothers, military wives and widows.

It was all part of an annual Mother’s Day event put on by Joy Ministries. The group welcomed almost 2,000 mothers and children to the Norfolk Waterside Marriott for dinner.

The event focused on mothers who may not have a lot of help, or those who have loved ones who are deployed. Organizers said it’s a chance to honor the mothers with a nice meal and a gift.

Some of the activities for children included clown and puppet shows that encouraged the kids to show their moms how much they are appreciated.
