The 2014 Love and Live with Faith Gala in Salt Lake City, Utah is a fundraising event hosted by the Virtua Foundation Hugs for TUG. to “help give children a chance”. The proceeds earned will benefit the children in Uganda, Tanzania and the Philippines.
This year, the Valentines charity fundraiser was held in the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley. Sosimbo photography had the chance to come back and provide our open air photo booth with our professional event photography to help support the cause.
The gala consists of appearances from many Misses, including Miss Utah-USA, Miss United Nations, Miss Asia-Utah, Miss Imagen, Miss Teen Utah-USA and a cultural fashion show consisting of Miss UN contestants in traditional costumes.
There were also many influential figures on stage. NFL Pro-Bowler Luther Elliss was the guest keynote speaker and ABC news anchor Kim Johnson co-MC’ed the event.
Off stage, a silent auction was held.
Song, dance, and music helped entertain the patrons.
A 3-course meal and cocktails also helped entertain patrons during the social hour.
The night ended with a private concert by Christian artist Shawn McDonald
