Recently, I had the pleasure and honor of hosting an art and music fundraising event with one of my nearest and dearest friends, Miss Thea Tochihara, in support of the Tomorrow Project – a work readiness program for women.
The idea was born when Thea, a ridiculously talented songbird, and I decided to channel our energy and emotions from the tumultuous political climate at the end of 2016 into something positive and productive. A few glasses of wine and some deep discussion, and Year of the Lady was born! This event was to celebrate and support ladies at every place in life – entrepreneurs, artists, those in a difficult spot – and celebrate we did! I got to share some art, Thea tickled our ears with her music, and premiered an amazing music video (find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFwpr2W1QH8). With the support of several local female owned businesses, and the dedicated team at the Tomorrow project, we were able to raise money, build relationships, and grow this community!
I offer my sincerest thank you to Del Sur Mexican Cantina, You and Yours Distilling, obr Architecture, and Rowlbertos Media for donating your time, goods, services, and huge hearts.
Cheers to the next one! And in the meantime, some photos!
