“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., at the Museum.

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, as well as community partners The Salah Foundation and the Community Foundation of Broward.

As in years past, the 18th Annual Women of Vision Luncheon will benefit the Museum’s creative and pioneering programs for underserved youth and families, including ArtHouse @ Northwest Gardens, a creative place-making 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 feature a fashion show of designer vintage couture by Hollen and Jen Showroom, along with an exquisite jewelry display by Levinson Jewelers, the official jewelry sponsor of Young At Art Museum.

Media sponsors for the luncheon include Gulfstream Media Group and the Sun Sentinel.

A donation of $1000 per person is the cost to attend the Women of Vision Luncheon. For more information and for reservations, please contact Mary Lynn Perrino by phone at 954-424-5023 or by email, mperrino@youngatartmuseum.org.
