Mother's Day is typically a day for children to give and mothers to receive, but not so for Monica Lau.
On the Friday and Saturday leading up to Mother's Day, Monica Lau Photography hosted a fundraising event to benefit the children of Make-A-Wish Hawaii, partnering with Family Hui Hawaii and Smarty Dance to create a joyful event for both mothers and their keiki. This special fundraiser offered $100 "mini-sessions" by Monica Lau Photography for mothers and their children, with the full photography session fee directly donated to Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
With enormous cookies, cold milk, a glittery backdrop, glamorous studio lighting and fun activities provided by Smarty Dance, the Milk & Cookies fundraiser raised $2,000 to directly support wishes for local children with life-threatening medical conditions. This generous donation was matched dollar-for-dollar through a corporate matching gift, doubling the total donation to $4,000 for our wish children!
Huge mahalo to Monica Lau Photography, Family Hui Hawaii and Smarty Dance for their incredibly generous efforts to ensure the power of a wish for more children right here in Hawaii.
