Oct. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- Bronx, NY  In a partnership with Chevrolet, award winning photojournalist and author, Linda Solomon, brings her nationally acclaimed program “Pictures of Hope” to Chevrolet dealers in ten cities across the country.  Linda Solomon, Chevrolet, and East Hills Chevrolet are joining forces to benefit children at the BronxWorks Jackson Avenue Family Residence, Bronx, New York.  

On Tuesday, October 25, 2011, Ms. Solomon will provide a photography lesson and empower 15 local children (ages 7-12) to capture photos of hope.  Following this photo exercise, Ms. Solomon and the team from East Hills Chevrolet, will surprise the children with cameras.  Immediately following, the children will go on their photo assignment with their cameras to reveal their hopes and dreams.

The cameras will be given to Linda Solomon who will then develop the photos, creating holiday cards to sell through BronxWorks.  The children will be brought to East Hills Chevrolet in November for a party to introduce the holiday cards which will be sold between November and December.

The proceeds from the sale of these holiday cards will benefit the BronxWorks Jackson Avenue Family Residence.

“Raising money to help families in need, while offering children a remarkable opportunity to express their own hopes and dreams through photography, is a very creative way to impact our local community. The family at East Hills Chevrolet is excited to embrace the Pictures of Hope program and we look forward to viewing an innocent 'understanding of life' we sometimes take for granted,” said Tim Brodlieb, President of East Hills Chevrolet.
