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.
