Event Info

Phyllis Sandler Heart of Social Work

It’s hard to believe that we started this event a decade ago in 2011 with the same intention we have today: to educate our community on the vast reach and incredible impact of the Social Work profession; to come together and celebrate our field agencies and alumni; to shine a light on our remarkable students and their inspiring passion for paying it forward; and to thank our sponsors who, year after year, give so generously from their hearts to support our students.


Watch the ripple effect of your generosity
