The amazing has already begun. On August 31st An Amazing Woman Foundation awarded the first scholarship to Lillian, a 10 year old Wyandotte girl with a black belt in karate who is going to Malaysia to represent the US in a world tournament. She received $2,000 to help with travel expenses and competition fees.

Also a recipient, Grace of Lincoln Park received a scholarship to pay for voice lessons. $480 to help pay for her voice lessons this year. Grace loves to sing and has said “it means everything to her”. Thirdly, Paris of Southgate. Paris is a competitive dancer and needed help paying for all of the extra lessons, costumes and travel costs associated with dancing competitively. She received $1,500 and tells us her goal is to become a Rockette!

How Amazing, these girls will have the opportunity to do what they love without taxing the family budget!

How it all began; An Amazing Woman Foundation founder Sandy is helping girls pursue creative art after her daughter’s death. You can read her personal, and touching story here.

Being the mother of two daughters myself, I am in awe of the strength, and positively in-which Sandra Garbovan has put into An Amazing Woman Foundation, in the name of her beautiful daughter. I am proud to also be a supporter in any way able.

How you can contribute;

“We are currently seeking corporate sponsors, other private donors and others who may be willing to fundraiser on our behalf (such as holding a jeans day at work) to fund our next round of scholarships. The deadline to apply for the next round is February 15, 2016.”
