FACES celebration supports at-risk children

More than 100 people gathered recently for The Children’s Home’s FACES 2014 celebration at Morgan State University’s Murphy Fine Arts Center.

     Guests wined and dined while listening to the Morgan State University Student Combo Band.

     Live and silent auctions featured a variety of special items, along with unique artwork created by the at-risk children and youth living at The Children’s Home prepared as part of a special mentorship project with Towson University School of Fine Arts.

     The event theme was “FACES Identity Discovery — ID.” Residents in The Children’s Home’s care respond positively to art as an innovative approach to rebuilding their lives. FACES showcased their courage for positive change, along with their innate artistic talent.

     Guests also demonstrated their own artistic style while decorating pumpkins and striking poses at the pixilated photo booth.

     “We were pleased that so many of our followers attended and participated with us,” said Andre Cooper, CEO of The Children’s Home. “Our focus was identification of kids’ expression/faces via art, which in part made the event successful for yet another year.”

                FACES 2014 raised $28,000 to support The Children’s Home’s residential programs and services.
