Gittings photographs Star Children's Charity Executive Summit
Gittings was the portrait sponsor for the VIP Reception honoring Mrs. Laura Bush, who was this year's keynote speaker at the Third Star Children's Charity Executive Summit Fundraiser. All proceeds from the event benefited City House, the Charity's designated beneficiary. (You can read more about the event here.
) A Star Board member for the past three years, photographer Barry Benton created portraits of Mrs. Bush and the VIP guests.
We're very proud of the relationships we have developed over the years with not-for-profit organizations in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, including the Houston Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Safe Haven of Tarrant County, Cancer Forward, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, and Make-A-Wish America. This precedent of community involvement was established by our founder, Paul Gittings, who believed that successful businesses should give back by providing pro-bono portraits to deserving non-profit organizations.
Gittings also occasionally donates gift certificates to select charity auctions in cities where our studios are located. If you would like to request a gift certificate for our charity auction, please contact your local studio for more information!
