From time to time I love to donate my time and talent (depending on my availability).
When I got an email from Kate Slawski from the USO Las Vegas (USO stand for United Service Organizations), I immediately knew I’m going to be their photographer at their event “Operation That’s My Dress”.
The USO committed to lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families, I was honored to contribute to this cause. The event took place at the Bally’s Hotel And Casino, on August 29-30, 2015 and is one of USO’s premiere military family appreciation programs honoring women for their service and sacrifice.
Female service members, military spouses, and teenaged daughters experience unique challenges related to military life. The program, in partnership with Sherri Hill, Ralph Lauren and Ann Taylor, is an opportunity to thank female military service members and military families for their sacrifice by offering them free designer dresses!
It includes a private “Fashion Show” with Miss Teen USA and Miss USA contestants from both pageants, as well as professional models, plus special Guest show – Mat Franco; The winner of the 9th season of America’s Got Talent.
I was so happy to volunteer for USO Las Vegas and to capture this amazing event, I meet so many people and saved their special days in my pictures.
I was excited to upload the pictures because I knew that people will want to see them right away!
This was just one of those days I felt honored to be a photographer, it was very important for me to support our military community.
