Local photographers will give back to Newtown community

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The images are strong and still very much in our minds, less than two weeks after the shootings in New town Connecticut. Now one local group wants to send help from our community to theirs.

“After Newtown Conn. happened a lot of us wanted to do something and all of us felt inspired and our talent is photography and we thought we would be able to give back that way”. Ray Baca told WWAY. ”There is a whole bunch of us in the town, ready and excited and motivated to help.”

The local event is called Clicks for Kids and it was inspired by one woman in Texas who just wanted to help.

We were inspired by an anonymous photographer based out of Texas who wanted to do something after the tragedy in Conn. it’s called the Olivia Act and it concentrates on the importance of family portraits as one of the young victims had just had her family portrait taken.” Nichole Lupton is another local photographer working with the event.

One group has come together to offer a way for people here to send help and hope there.

“We also wanted to take the additional step and not just donate portraits to people here in Wilmington , we wanted to make it a fund raiser to make money to send to Conn. to do our part as well.” Lupton explained.

The event is Saturday January 5th downtown at 27 North Front Street, on the third floor, from 9 to 5. For more information and to sign up, go to Wilmington Photographers Give Back, on Facebook.
