Kristin Vartan interviews board members and celebrity supporters on behalf of Press Pass LA at the 2019 Face Forward Gala.
Face Forward provides emotional support and reconstructive surgery for women, children and men who have been victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and cruel acts of crime. Face Forward’s 10th Annual Gala is a true celebration of their amazing survivors. The goal of their annual event is to unite communities from Hollywood, corporate partners, and the elite of Beverly Hills, to help raise funds and awareness for the work that they do to help survivors receive the surgical and emotional support care they need. Thie year’s gala saw global entertainer and former honoree, La Toya Jackson hosting the event. Last years Beacon of Hope winner Caitlyn Jenner will pass her award forward and present to this years winner. This years’ honorees include hall of famer Chauncy Billups, and former President of 20th Century Fox, Scott Neeson who founded the Cambodian Children’s Fund. Honoree Scott Neeson visited Phnom Penh and was moved by the conditions he saw the children living in. Upon returning home he resigned from his job, sold all of his possessions and started the Cambodian Children’s Fund. Scott will be bringing mother/daughter acid attack survivors to the US for treatment. Because of his heartfelt actions, Scott received the Humanitarian award at this year’s gala.
