as a proud bruin alumna and former pilipino transfer student partnership (ptsp) member, it was our pleasure to donate a one-hour photo session to the ucla pilipino alumni association (paa) scholarship endowment. the winner of the silent auction was randy, who although currently resides in lovely la-la land, was in town for a relative's graduation, and was able to meet up with us to redeem his winnings. randy is an actor and wanted to update his portfolio with new headshots. in order to "customize" the portraits for various roles, he included 3 different looks: youth, military, and professional. for this, he requested a location which included a playground structure and sand. we'd heard about the awesome children's playground in golden gate park and decided to meet up there. koret children's quarter, which is the official name, did not disappoint!
thanks so much for your donation to the scholarship fund, randy!
