A victim told her heartbrreaking story of how she was beaten and left in the street to die, her face so badly disfigured she was barely recognizable. Face Foward brings awareness and gives hope to these victims informing them of corrective surgery and introducing them to some of the best doctors in the country.

This Gatsby Gala Affair was done in traditional Gatsby style as if Gatsby himself was attending and looking on from his private window.  All attendees were dressed to the theme and live entertainment included roaring 1920's dancers and live painters. It was as if you walked through the doors and went back in time to the 1920' era.
