My Friend’s Place - a LA based organisation who assist and inspire homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives - are set to honour musician Halsey at their 2019 benefit gala. Halsey, who has been open about periods of homelessness she has experienced in the past, clearly holds this cause close to her heart. She is set to be honoured alongside sisters Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler, who danced their way to fame on reality TV and in Sia music videos.
Heather Carmichael - the director of My Friend’s Place - said the following regarding the announcement of the honourees: “Connection, community, visibility and the space to craft one’s own identity is at the core of the work being done at My Friend’s Place. It is there, standing by our side in partnership, that you will find our 2019 honorees, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to our young people. While reflecting on our 31-year history in Los Angeles, we feel fortunate to celebrate our amazing community, and remain resolute in our mission of developing and sustaining innovative programming with the goal of ending youth homelessness, one young person at a time.”
Fashion brand ModCloth is also set to be honoured at the benefit. More information about My Friend’s Place, and their work and contact details can be found on their site here.
