Johnny Nunez is being recognized for fostering a bright future for children in the foster care system…
The half-Venezuelan celebrity photography and founder of Nubuzzphoto will be honored by singer-songwriter Ne-Yo and his Compound Foundation at the 2nd Annual Fostering A Legacy Benefit taking place Saturday, August 17.
Co-hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart with a special performance by Grammy-nominated singer Estelle, the gala will celebrate the strength and creativity of youth in foster care.
The night’s award ceremony will honor exemplary individuals and corporations for their leadership in foster care, adoption and community work.
Nunez, who grew up in the foster care system and was adopted at the age of five by a Puerto Rican family, is one of the most renowned celebrity photographers to work with some of the most influential figures including President Barack Obama, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey , Mick Jagger , Swizz Beatz and Clive Davis to name a few.
“Johnny Nunez… has been an advocate of our cause for years,” states Ne-Yo, founder of the Compound Foundation.
Following the awards and its ongoing effort to support its youth in foster and group homes, Compound will ask guests to participate in its Balloon Legacy Auction raising funds for the foundation’s important programs.
