Ellen Smith is the youngest of 4 children, a twin, a single mother of 2, a licensed cosmetology instructor and a philanthropist. In 2004, Ellen hosted a small event at her home. Ellen invited “Mother’s in Charge,” an organization of mothers whose children have been killed in violent crimes to benefit from the event. The event response was so good that Ellen wanted to make it bigger & better and created Dining With Divas.
Dining With Divas ie Mother’s Day at the Mansion, believes that every mother should have the opportunity to enjoy the day recognized as a national holiday in her honor. For this reason, our affiliates have selflessly given their time & effort to ass ist us in this matter. Dining With Divas does an annual “Adopt A Family.” Between 8-10 families are adopted every year. They receive Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner which is delivered to their homes. For Mother’s Day, mother’s & children in transition from shelters, foster homes etc…. are personally transported to & from event and enjoy the special day with their family.
