Boyfriends son's graduation party

Am I expected to help serve food? He has an ex wife with sister's. But his mother will also have prepared the food with a friend. They are Jamaican. There will be about 150 people with buffet style service. I was raised many hands make for light work. And I adore his mother. But I feel his ex (who doesn't work) should be the one handling this. Please help don't want to be rude.

Light Work
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Girlfriend,

It would seem to me that who does what is less important, then you doing as your mother said, "many hands make for light work". Do not worry what the ex does as much as what you do. This is not a competition, but your boyfriend's son graduation.

Enjoy the day!
