Gary Ferrer

Gary Ferrer, a successful celebrity photographer and dancer lost his eye sight in 2016 due to the almost fatal disease meningitis. This experience moved Mr. Ferrer to use his talents to help low-income children. Gary launched a folkloric dance group that teaches children the art of dance and the importance of community service at no cost. The dance group has performed at regional events, such as the Festival of Lights, NASCAR, the Orange County Fair and many more. Gary is an example to all of us that perseverance and love for your community makes a difference. Turn your scars into stars.
