A quick recap of our Help-Portrait event held at Gurnee Community Church (gcchome.org) on December 14, 2013.
We invited families from two local charities (loveinclakecounty.org and teenmotherchoices.org) to get their hair & makeup done, get free professional portraits taken, enjoy a Christmas party, and leave with a framed family photo in hand. We had a great turnout of 35 families (approximately 125 guests) despite inclement weather. About a dozen photographers and 40 more volunteers all chipped in to make this possible!
Special thanks to Tricoci University for their amazing crew of volunteer hair & makeup stylists, Walgreens for their donation of 8x10 photo frames, and George Street Photo & Video for their donation of USB flash drives for each of our guests.
