Queen for a Day
Earlier this month, the annual “Queen for a Day” event, organized by Seeach Sod – an organization that provides developmental, educational and vocational programming for 1,000 children and adults with disabilities – turned its focus on mothers of special- needs children in a day full of royal treatment earlier this month. In a private home in Ra’anana, gourmet food, beauty treatments, swimming and support sessions helped the busy mothers relax, recharge and receive the pampering they deserve.
