What a super night to honor and celebrate Kids in Focus and the at-risk children whose lives have been changed by this incredible nonprofit.
I first attended the annual Noche Para Los Ninos Gala two years ago, shortly after its founder Karen Shell joined me as a guest on The Women’s Eye podcast.
I was blown away by the fun and pageantry of the evening. So returning this year as the emcee was extra special to me.
Karen impressed me not just by her personal story, but by her commitment to giving at-risk youth a new lens on life through photography.
They’re given a camera that – through the power of photography and dedicated mentors – shifts their perspective from surviving to thriving.
They’re inspired to see the world – and themselves – through a lens that opens their eyes to their own potential and self-worth.
Kids in Focus changes lives.
Big shout out to everyone who dressed up and raised their bidder paddles to generously help fundraise for this incredible organization… to the organizers, sponsors, restaurants, beverage companies, musicians and performers, who delivered a fabulous night under the stars… and to our fantastic auctioneer @annaaja , who helped shine a powerful light on the way this organization has helped transform the lives of the children it serves.
I encourage you to learn more about supporting them at kidsinfocus.org.
