The 2019 gala for My Friend’s Place honored both Maddie and Mackenzie as champions of the year! The organization is very special to the girls. They have both worked closely with My Friend’s Place. The issue of homeless youth touches them both tremendously.
“We are thrilled to honor our 2019 Champions at Ending Youth Homelessness: A Benefit For My Friend’s Place—a night that will bring together our amazing Honorees – including Halsey, Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler, and ModCloth– with our organization’s past and present Board of Directors, and our supporters, volunteers and alumni,” said Ms. Carmichael. “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.”
