Young At Art Hosts 18th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon on February 11, 2015 - Proceeds to benefit Young At Art programs for underserved youth and families

“White Hot” is the theme for Young At Art Museum’s 18th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon to be held on Wednesday, February 11, beginning at 11 a.m. Young At Art Museum is located at 751 S.W. 121 Avenue, Davie, Florida.

Community advocate Maya Ezratti will serve as luncheon chair as Women of Vision celebrates all of the women and men who are making a difference in the community. “I am thrilled to serve as luncheon chair again this year as we elevate the bar on fundraising and giving back to the community through Young At Art's outstanding outreach, community service, education and art programs,”said Ezratti.

As in years past, the 18th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon will benefit the Museum's creative and pioneering programs including ArtHouse @ Northwest Gardens, a creative placemaking hub for residents of Northwest Gardens, where low-income families earn 60 percent or less of the area’s median income of $40,000; ArtREACH, a free, afterschool art, literacy and academic enrichment program for homeless youth and teens, ages 5-15, living in Broward emergency and transitional shelters; and Girls N’ Power, an arts-based academic enrichment program designed to build self-esteem and critical thinking skills through art, which is conducted at the PACE Center for Girls.

An annual tradition, each of the Women of Vision will be presented with a hand-crafted, intricately designed, original piece of sterling silver jewelry created by Young At Art Museum's Artist in Residence Chisseko Kondowe.

Along with musical entertainment, the luncheon will include a fashion show featuring designer vintage couture by Hollen and Jen Showroom and an exquisite jewelry display by Levinson Jewelers, the official jewelry sponsor of Young At Art Museum.

Last year the Women of Vision luncheon raised $260,000 for Young At Art’s programs for at-risk youth and underserved youth and families in the community.

Media sponsors include Gold Coast magazine and the Sun Sentinel.
