The Coalition for Children’s Mental Health announces 2010 Community Heroes:
All Brides Beautiful Owner, Bobbie Lopez, has been selected as one of the 7 Community Heroes for this year. Join Bobbie & other local heroes at the Clarion Inn ~ Thursday 10/21 for the Banquet & Awards Ceremony:
Bobbie grew up with an Aunt who was 13 years older than her and who had a big heart, a child-like sense of humor and a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. This led her to pursue a degree in Special Education. Since raising a family of 4 & running All Brides Beautiful changed her career path, Bobbie has continued to stay involved with teaching special needs children through her church. Providing these children with access to the Sacraments of the Catholic Church, as well as sharing the love of Jesus, has become a passion for Bobbie. She has taught PSR (Parish School of Religion) for nearly 20 years with the last 5 years teaching special needs PSR (elementary grades) & Confirmation (11th Grade).
The biggest reward for Bobbie is seeing these students accepted & befriended by mainstream students, as her Aunt was embraced by the communities of St. Mary Church, The Elms Assisted Living & many Hudson Neighbors.
Be an advocate for every child ~ with understanding & support they can be the confident & productive adults of our future communities.
