On September 27, a group of Phenomenal Women led by Stephanie Burns hosted the third Surviving & Thriving (S&T) event, celebrating the phenomenal women in our lives who inspire and empower us.
Since S&T was first launched in 2010, they have raised about $15,000 for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. and SFWAR (San Francisco Women Against Rape), honoring and celebrating survivors, their healing and our communities. Inspired by Maya Angelou’s quote, “Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant,” S&T has been a collaborative effort of many passionate artists, organizations and individuals committed to empowering survivors of domestic and sexual violence. In this way, they seek to create a community that honors the past and celebrates the future.
It was an unforgettable and empowering evening that included fantastic art, a silent auction, cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres and music.We look forward to more S&Ts to come. Thank you Stephanie and the Phenomenal Women!
