The Ladybug Project is a non profit charity that sponsors education and health care projects in Equatorial Guinea and Madagascar…and boy are they doing big things! I was fortunate enough to photograph their most recent event in Bonita Springs at the Trianon Hotel. The Arts for Africa event was a collection of student and local artwork and also a silent auction filled with so many fantastic donations! I wish I could explain the energy that was in the room more adequately; people were just so friendly, and so much fun. It was a charity event that I left with my heart feeling full and excited that people care about supporting such a good cause.
I have to give a special shout-out to the Executive Director, and the founder of The Ladybug Project, Kim. I know she works SO HARD for this cause and I just can’t tell her how great it is to see someone doing something so big! I know she has a lot of supporters, and in no way want to minimize how great they are too, I just wanted to say a deep, heartfelt way-to-go Ladybug Project! All of you that I was fortunate to meet, thank you for being so hospitable and welcoming.

Below are just a few photos from event…The first one is of my new friend Kiana Dancie (a hilarious comedienne), with Karla Ray (NBC2) and Kim (executive director).
I had to get in a photo with Kim, because she’s just too cool!
