Shutterbugs Photography Show and Auction Saturday, May 14th

Pablove is one of my favorite Los Angeles based charities.  Pablove is so close to my heart because it was started by some friends of mine who’s son was a classmate of my kids’ at preschool. Pablo Castalez died of Wilm’s Tumor Cancer just before his sixth birthday. Wilm’s Tumor is a rare form of cancer that affects children. Pablo’s parents, JoAnn and Jeff, started Pablove in his memory in order to support families of children living with cancer. One of their most recent programs, designed to improve the quality of life of kids living with cancer, is a photography program called Shutterbugs.

Shutterbugs seeks to teach pediatric cancer patients to develop their creative voice through the art of photography. The eight-week program gives each student hands-on experience through one-on-one weekly instruction and group classes taught by special guests. Students receive their own camera kit, which is theirs to keep upon completion of the course. The inaugural class of 13 children from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles completed the program on March 5, 2011. The children ranged from 7 to 13 years old. Students, families, mentors, and celebrity supporters will walk the red carpet this Saturday, May 14,  to celebrate the kids’ photographs and enjoy an mazing silent and live auction,  great food and beverages, and entertainment for the whole family.

The gallery show will take place at the Kopeikin Gallery. The students’ work is truly mindblowing. A $50.00 donation will buy one of these beautiful kids’ prints.  They will also be auctioning off some incredible work to benefit the Shutterbugs program, including works 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 CauseKCRW DJ Chris Douridas will spin the latest in independent music to entertain the crowd.  It is sure to be an inspiring event of great photographs, delicious food, and hip music, all for an extremely worth cause. Hope to see you there.
