The Teen Project Fashion Show 2018
Every year I get the privilege of providing photography for The Teen Project Fashion Show, put on by The Teen Project. It's an amazing non-profit organization that supports youth that age out of foster care by providing shelter and rehab among many other things.
"The Teen Project is a nonprofit 501c3 serving at risk homeless and sex trafficked young women (18-25 years old) many from foster care. We are able to provide drug treatment at no cost to the recipient through the support of County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health, Substance Abuse Prevention and Control (SAPC) and our gracious donors and other applicable funding sources. The Teen Project is a parent to the parentless providing young women without resources with a chance at life. Our focus is sobriety, education and housing. The Teen Project transitional housing is provided for free to our clients thanks to the support of people who believe in the mission and support our efforts."

This year's fashion show benefit was at the Paseo Hotel and Spa in Huntington Beach, Ca. Here's some highlights. Enjoy.
Live music, silent auctions and a prime view of Huntington Beach.
Meet Lauri Burns, the founder of The Teen Project. Her story is fascinating coming from the streets herself.
This year's very entertaining and inspirational keynote speaker was Josh Boyd. Josh co-founded The 12.
They had a fantastic MC in Dawn Marie Kotsonis.
