SAVANNA WILLIAMS

President and Founder

Born at 26 weeks gestation and weighing a mere 1.15 ounces, Savanna Williams demonstrated a true warrior spirit of determination to live.

 

At the age of three, Savanna developed a passion to paint. Along with it came the desire to use her artistic talents to help raise money for charitable organizations.

 

With supportive parents cheering her on, Savanna founded Angel Hands Arts Foundation, a 501 (C)(3) organization that aims to make a big difference in the Kansas City community and the world.

 

When not painting and changing the world Savanna indulges in her first love, dance. She's an award-winning hip-hop competitive dancer and is currently a member of the dance team at Pulse Performing Arts Center. Savanna enjoys taking classes with the Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey summer camp.

She is transitioning from the artist to the business side of charity work but still enjoys working with the youth.

Nicole Williams values the mission of the organization and works to see it fulfilled. She served in the same capacity five years before the organization becoming a 501(c)(3).

She works alongside her husband (Brian) and daughter (Savanna) to complete the mission of the organization; making living better for the children they serve.

BRIAN WILLIAMS

Vice President of Marketing and Communications

Affectionately known to everyone as BDub, Brian brings a wealth of marketing and public relations knowledge from the corporate world as well as his 10 plus years in radio. 

 

Brian served as the March of Dimes Communications Director following his daughter's 72-day fight for life in the NICU.  His daughter's mission to change the lives of the youth through art inspires and drives him to advocate for the Foundation every single day.  

When not building relationships on behalf of Angel Hands Art you can find Brian working his craft on his other passion, BDub's BBQ, his family-owned food truck business home to some of the best BBQ in KC.
