Don’t be fooled by the name — Tiny Sparrow Foundation. It does not benefit our feathered friends. It was founded to connect volunteer photographers with families of children with life-threatening illnesses. Each family is photographed and presented a “Tiny Sparrow Album” at no cost. The foundation was the brainchild of breast cancer survivor Lidia Boicu, who took up photography during her treatments. Through her experiences, Lidia learned how a “collection of photographs that captured the life and spirit inside” the little patients brought joy to their families through difficult times.
To help support the project, “Pictures of Hope” will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday at True Rumors Boutique with cocktails, food from Fresh Point, It’s a Cooking Party, Silk Road, Cafe Malaga, Ronnie Ruth’s, Texas Star Bakery and Oh, Brownie! There will be a fashion show with models and Tiny Sparrow children showing off the latest fashions.
The event is open and free with proceeds from the silent auction including trips to Mexico, Florida and Northern California going to the foundation.
