Hollywood Foreign Press Association Supports The Pablove Foundation!

August 20, 2019

What a night our Shutterbug Lucky had at the 2019 Hollywood Foreign Press Association Grants Banquet!

Did you know? The HFPA recognizes the critical work of The Pablove Foundation and generously supports our Pablove Shutterbugs program with multi-year grants, so that kids like Lucky can learn the art of photography as they overcome the struggles of pediatric cancer.

Beyond grant funding, the Hollywood Foreign Press gives our deserving students the experiences of a lifetime– providing access to world-class events like the HFPA Grants Gala and Golden Globes red carpets. Our Shutterbugs get to shoot Hollywood’s biggest stars as the youngest Official Press Photographers, truly getting the royal treatment.

This year, 13 year old Lucky joined us for the HFPA Grants Banquet, where he got to meet some of his favorite celebs including Renée Zellweger, Corrine Foxx, Justin Hartley, James Corden, Eva Longoria, Julia Butters, Taika Waititi, and more!

Thank you to the HFPA for continuing to shine a light on kids living with cancer and to the kind stars who stopped by to meet Lucky and see the face of #HFPAGRANTS in action!
