Photography can lift spirits and give a voice to those under turmoil. The Pablove Foundation strives to improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, arts programs, music. The foundation raises funds for pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment as well as educate and empower cancer families.
Please join them this Saturday, May 14, 2011 at the Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles from 4pm-8pm for a graduation show of their first inaugural Pablove Shutterbugs program. This 8 week photography workshop offers hands on instruction for pediatric cancer patients to find and express their voice.
Admission is free and there will be food, beverages, entertainment and auctions of photos by modern master Weegee, as well as more contemporary photographers like Bruce Davidson, David Levinthal, Zoe Crosher, Alia Malley, Lauren Greenfield and others. Music photography works by Chapman Baehler (Brian Wilson), Piper Ferguson (Beck, Pavement, Joe Strummer), Jim Britt (Marvin Gaye), and more will also be auctioned. NFL star and Livestrong ambassador Dhani Jones will be on hand with a special Pablove Bowtie for a Cause. KCRW DJ Chris Douridas will spin the latest in independent music to entertain the crowd.
Volunteers are also needed to bring the entire event together. Please visit The Pablove Foundation website to sign up.
