VU is honored and privileged to have the opportunity to host the second annual benefit for The Orchid Foundation: Artists for the Orchid Foundation. The 2021 benefit continues the momentum built in the inaugural 2020 benefit. A phenomenal group of artists have come together to help this amazing group of young women.
The Orchid Foundation is a mentorship and scholarship program for underserved girls. We choose girls who are excelling in their academic and extracurricular pursuits to help fill the resource gap presented by their socioeconomic backgrounds. Our mission is to mentor these girls to and through college. We are small by design, going deep rather than broad. We touch the lives of our “Orchids” with personal care, educational support and a broad-minded view of the world with designs to foster leaders for tomorrow. These “Orchids” are 14-22 year old powerhouses who deserve the opportunities and success they are working so hard to attain.
“We are hands on with our Orchids, curating group events that build sisterhood amongst the girls, as well as one on one activities that cater to each girl’s individual needs. The focus is on building self esteem, character and the can do spirit needed to be successful in today’s world.”
