Tina and Richard Lawson arrive for their event, the Wearable Art Gala held at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles, California. The event was attended by the famous family and celebrity friends and raised a $1 million dollars. The money raised will be used to benefit The WACO Theater Center that helps young people.
Of course, Beyonce and Solange Knowles were on hand to support their mother along with Kelly Rowland.
Beyonce gushed about how proud she is of her mom:
“I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event. Close to $1 million was raised for The WACO Theater Center to benefit young people through their mentorship programs and the arts. Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you.”
