Celebrating 20 Years of
Educational Empowerment

Marriott Quincy

Thank you for a successful 2023 event!

We are so grateful for all who joined together to celebrate our mission, students and donors at our Inspire Their Future gala on November 9, 2023.

The sold-out evening was a remarkable success as we gathered to celebrate our programs, students and those who collectively create a brighter future for those in need. Special thanks to our donors, listed below, for standing firmly behind our mission and students; and to our dedicated volunteers, whose selfless service and heart create a better future for us all.

  • A celebration of our “Champions for Kids”
  • A Gathering of the SOWMA family, including Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, donors, event sponsors and students
  • A glimpse into our Program highlights, student achievements and those who make it possible
  • A beautiful evening of stories and the blending of collective hearts and hope for the future
