Boston, MASS, [May 1, 2014] - This year, celebrate Mom and treat the entire family to Mother's Day brunch on Sunday, May 11 in the Ballroom of The Ritz-Carlton while supporting The Women’s Lunch Place by bringing new, small toiletries that will be donated to the women’s daytime shelter.

Served from 11am - 2:00pm, brunch will feature all of the delicious standards that Mom [and her guests] will truly love - seafood and caviar stations, breakfast selections, pasta stations, hot entree selections, multiple carving stations, an over the top dessert station, and, of course, a decadent buffet for children. Please see below for complete menu.

Music, entertainment for the kids and an interactive greeting card station will be featured as well. An organization called Catching Joy will be at the brunch and will give kids and adults alike the opportunity to connect with clients of The Women's Lunch Place, which provides a safe, comfortable daytime shelter, nutritious food and services for women who are homeless or fighting poverty. Children are invited to create "thinking of you" greeting cards with crayons, magic markers and colored pencils to accompany the toiletries that will be collected and donated to the nearby shelter. The Ritz-Carlton plans to donate an assortment of toiletries as well.

Mother’s Day brunch reservations should be made in advance by calling 617-574-7184. Price is $98.00 per adult and $48.00 for children ages 12 and under. Visit for additional details. The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common is located at 10 Avery Street in Boston.
