Supporting Face Forward with Tom Arnold at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Beverly Hills

I recently had the pleasure to partner with Face Forward for their 3rd annual gala at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.  Face Forward works to identify survivors working towards recovery, but still bearing the physical evidence of past abuse.

When they approached me to work with them to provide photography & videography pro-Bono, I thought it was definitely a cause worth investing in.

As if shooting at a hotel in Beverly Hills isn’t already amazing enough, the event was hosted by Tom Arnold, Bonnie Sommerville, and Jennifer Coolidge.  Special performances by Assia Ahhatt – World Renowned Ukranian Violinist, and an incredible acrobatic display during dinner.

However, with all of the celebrities and entertainment, the focus of the event remained in sight.  This is a difficult issue to deal with, but I’m thankful that Face Forward is leading the charge.

Be sure to check out the video I put together for them to get an idea of what they’re about.  (Please note: There are some graphic images in the video)
