The Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS) recently celebrated 57 years of community service with its annual benefit show. The group consists of approximately 180 mothers and their 7th-12th grade daughters from the Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Hills and Hillcrest areas.

The Class of 2020 performed two professionally choreographed routines from the Broadway musical, “School of Rock.” Katie Austin, of Mission Hills, who participated as a student, joined other classmates who performed dance routines to raise funds for local charities.

According to Katie Austin, “It’s great to be part of such a fun social group and to do things with my mom and my friends that help our community. I’ve made and served meals to families staying at Bannister Family House in Hillcrest a place where people live while a family member has long-term medical care at UCSD.”

Karen Austin, Katie’s mom, also shared her appreciation for the organization, “I love being a member of MADCAPS with my daughter because it gives us an organized way to really get to know and help care for our community. We’re doing worthwhile things that are benefitting others and, in turn, our own lives are enriched by volunteering together.”
