The Chelko Foundation partners with deserving organizations for the “Bodies Event” and this year the partnership was with SCAD. Due to the hard work of our committees and our board, The Chelko Foundation was able to fund an endowment for Women in the arts and SCAD.
A highlight of this years Bodies As A Work of Art Event was the presentation of the “Heart of Empowerment Award”. This award, introduced by Carey Carter and Sarah Wolf Mixon was awarded by Ken Goldwasser and Randi Layne from the Chelko Foundation, to Dr Teresa Griffis who accepted the award on behalf of SCAD founder, Paula Wallace.
This award was given for the efforts of Paula and SCAD who have taken it upon themselves to assist in empowering young women through education.
