Empowering HeArts 2020 Gala

Empowering HeArts 2020 Gala

Santa Clarita, CA, – Single Mothers Outreach (SMO) is proud to announce INSPIRE TO EMPOWER as the theme for their first-ever virtual Empowering HeArts fundraising gala set to take place on September 12, 2020, at 6:00 PM.

What is Empowering HeArts:

Empowering HeArts bridges the worlds of social action and artistic expression by pairing inspirational women and artists of Santa Clarita to create art forms that depict the moving stories of these honorees. Art is juried and two prizes are awarded as follows:

  • Dottie Award – awarded to the artist who creates the most compelling visual story
  • People’s Choice – awarded by gala attendees from votes taken at the event

Honorees are nominated by the community and selected by the Single Mothers Outreach Board of Directors and Empowering HeArts planning committee. Six artists have been selected to be paired with one of our six honorees to tell her story in the medium of photography, collage, painting, or sculpture. A panel of industry experts will judge the artists, and the grand-prize winner will be announced during the virtual event and be featured in a tribute program describing each woman’s story.
