Dreamer Family Support: Thank You Los Angeles Volunteers!

We are so grateful to Los Angeles volunteers that offer to enhance our services at I Have a Dream Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA).

This surprise Beauty Bash MakeOver for Mothers of IHADLA Dreamers in our Watts Program is a recent example.

Generous make-up artists and supporters created a wonderful day for mothers of our Dreamers. Thank you to April Love Pro Makeup Academy, BeBella Cosmetics, Norms Restaurants, Estrella State Flower Shop, Porto’s Bakery and Emily at Empowered Movement Dance Company (owned by Aubrey Ares) teaching Bachata.

Make-up artists: Paola Arango, Cheyanne Godinez, Sandy Phoenix, Angelique Torrington, Arianna – Drama N Glam Artistry, Desiree Yvonne Rodriguez and Wendy Roche.

Photos are by professional photographer Julie Rodriguez.

This special event was a surprise to the mothers of our Dreamers that attended. Parent Center Coordinator, Rocio Gonzalez from 107th St Elementary school in Watts, Los Angeles made the announcement. Moms had been told there would be a self-esteem workshop. They didn’t know that there would be no workshop; it was a surprise makeover!

Thank you to all for a very special day.
