Single Mothers Outreach is pleased to announce a brand new date for our signature Empowering HeArts event. Our mission is to empower our single-parent families, and we want our families to feel loved and valued. We have decided to change the date of empowering hearts and realign it with Valentine’s Day. This new tradition will allow us to better celebrate our honorees during the month of love.
To recognize our new date of celebration, we are thrilled to launch a new logo, designed by Phillis Stacy-Brooks of Main Street Graphics.
Our honorees Martha Aguilera, Monica Blanco, Kamila Diaz, Nicole Feast-Williams, Kim Flores and Janelle Percy are looking forward to meeting you at our gala on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017.
Tickets are now on sale via http://singlemothersoutreach.org/reserve-tickets. We are thrilled that Santa Clarita Mayor Pro-Tem Dante Acosta is our Master of Ceremonies for our new event.
Yorleni Sapp, Executive Director said “We want all our honorees, artists and our Single Parents to feel loved and what better way to celebrate than to hold our signature event during the month of love?
I am thrilled that Dante Acosta is our master of ceremonies for this year’s Empowering HeArts gala as he always been a strong supporter of Single Mothers Outreach. I am also delighted by the positive response of the community to our new gala date. Excitement is building already and our new logo looks fantastic.”
What is Empowering Hearts?
Empowering HeArts is an annual celebration of women who have changed lives and shaped their communities. It bridges the worlds of social action and artistic expression in an annual arts competition.
Honorees are nominated by the community and selected by the Single Mothers Outreach (SMO) Board of Directors and Event Planning Committee.
The Empowering Hearts Gala presents the creative works of Santa Clarita Valley artists who create unique and inspiring art forms inspired by these real life stories. It is SMOs hope that through sharing these powerful stories in word and art, these extraordinary women will impact and inspire others to rise above their own circumstances.
Empowering HeArts is SMO’s signature fundraising event. All proceeds from the event are used to support programs that empower single parents to effectively care for their families.
