Mother’s Day came a day early for some very special moms, going through tough times.

The New York City Rescue Mission held its annual “Honor Her” event.

Some 500 homeless women were served food and provided entertainment. There were some celebrity quests on hand -- and local politicians who explained why this event is so special.

PIX11's Magee Hickey lent her talents to the day. She helps out every year.
