AWBW’s 2017 heART Awards, a brunch celebration held in the stunning ocean-view ballroom at Casa Del Mar on Sunday, October 1, 2017.
The heART Awards were presented to three community members who represent the core values of our mission through Creative Vision, Community Impact, and as a Compassionate Witness. Guests enjoyed a delicious champagne brunch, luxury auction items, and opportunity to bid on 36 canvases, painted as one, by Los Angeles-based artist Mike Chearney.
All proceeds directly benefit our transformative arts programs to fund scholarships, art supplies, trainings, curriculum development and the launching of new programs. If you’re interested in getting involved in this event, donating an auction item, or joining the Host Committee for 2018, please email Lindsay Angrisani.
