Love & Hip Hop producer Mona Scott-Young is giving back to the community with support to the Saving Our Cinderellas. The organization focuses on introducing young multicultural girls to the arts with classes with mentors in the industry including Scott-Young.
Popular producer, businesswoman, and television personality Mona Scott-Young continues her support for Saving Our Daughters with a generous sponsorship of the Saving Our Cinderellas program through her company, Monami Entertainment. Home to Grammy Award-winning artist Missy Elliott and VH1’s most popular docu-franchise, Love & Hip Hop, Monami Entertainment has been a lead supporter of Saving Our Daughters for numerous years, enjoying the opportunity to contribute to the organizations’ efforts within the community.
“It has been an honor to be part of the remarkable work of the Saving Our Daughters organization over the past several years,” said Scott-Young. “Our team at Monami is thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor the Saving Our Cinderellas program, introducing girls of color in our communities to the remarkable power and benefits of the performing arts.”
Based on the collaboration with New York City’s Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the Saving Our Cinderellas on Broadway program introduces multicultural girls to theater and performing arts while offering talented mentors from the areas of television, film and music. Scott-Young’s professional experience in both music and television makes her an invaluable voice and partner in the work of the Saving Our Cinderellas program.
As a lead sponsor of the program, Monami Entertainment will provide Cinderellas shirts for the girls to wear proudly during their classes with their mentors and at special Broadway events throughout the 2015-2016 year. The company will also help provide special field trips to introduce the girls to Broadway theatre musicals, in an effort to inspire their interest in performing arts and to deter bullying and date abuse, one of Saving Our Daughters’ most important missions.
Scott-Young’s business and philanthropic achievements have garnered recognition from a variety of prestigious organizations, including Black Enterprise, Vibe magazine, and The Hollywood Reporter. She has been honored with awards from the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music Entertainment, ASCAP’s “Woman Behind the Music” Award, and “Marketer of the Year” by Ad Age, and she was recently recognized by the National Congress and Convention of Haitian-Americans. She currently serves on the board of The Haitian Roundtable, The RSQ Foundation, and The GrassROOTS Foundation.
