State Senator Kimberly A. Lightford hosted her 7th Annual Grandparents Raising Grandchildren on May 7, 2017. The event recognizes the sacrifices and commitment grandparents who are raising their grandchildren have accepted.

This year, 51 new nominees were honored, 12 honorary grandparents and were joined by 62 previous nominees. The event included dinner, raffle prizes, a presentation by the American Association of Retired Persons. Guests enjoyed entertainment by Jordan Temple Church Men of God Mime Dancers, Maywood Fine Arts modern dancers and praise dancers from Progressive Life-Giving World Cathedral.

Senator Lightford is very grateful for everyone who made the night a success. Enjoy photos from the event!
