In a letter to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Catherine Berclaz writes:
“I wanted to send you a quick update on Pablove Shutterbugs Photography Program along with some photos from our LA and NY classes. This year with the help of your $5,000 grant we had 42 students graduate from our photography program for pediatric cancer patients. Our students are patients from CHLA, Cedars-Sinai and NYU Langone Medical Center. Each child received a camera kit which was theirs to keep and also completed our 8 week course.
The program was a huge success and we have received interest from many of our students to continue learning about photography. We already have patients on our waiting list in New York and Los Angeles to attend our 2012 Pablove Shutterbugs Program because of the success of the program. We will be expanding our program to more than double our students in 2012 in both cities.
I want to thank you for your support of Pablove Shutterbugs and enabling us to teach these eager students to develop their creative voice through the art of photography.”Read More »
