For more than a decade, some of Broward's most dedicated community leaders have contributed to Young At Art Museum through its Women of Vision event. Chaired in its inception by then Broward County Commissioner Lori Parrish, the Women of Vision have been the foundation for the growth of Young At Art into the cultural icon it is today. Each February we celebrate the contribution of this dedicated group of women and men with a luncheon, honoring a prominent member of our community.

The Women of Vision share the goals of Young At Art Museum – to create opportunities for children from all socio-economic levels which motivate learning, promote cultural tolerance and enrich their lives. Through their annual commitment, the Women of Vision help sustain Young At Art – Broward County’s premier Museum.

The annual gala brings together hundreds of museum friends, corporate partners and community leaders for a spectacular evening at Young At Art Museum. YAA's Gala is the organization's most visible and significant fundraiser. Proceeds from the Gala help fund the Museum's hands-on educational activities that benefit more than 250,000 children and families annually, and provide critical support for our outreach programs that are designed to meet the needs of our community's most disadvantaged children and families.

The Annual Recycled Fashion Show is an evening acknowledging and celebrating the determination, creativity and environmental voice of teens from the museum's Volunteer Program and PACE Center for Girls Broward. Over the course of four months, the girls – who come from diverse backgrounds, needs and experiences – collaborate to research environmental issues as inspiration for garments they create from recycled materials including remnant fabric, bottle caps, metallic mesh, plastic, newspaper, cardboard and wire. Proceeds from the event benefit YAA's art programs for at-risk youth in our community.
