The Mercedes Benz Fashion Show will Benefit the Lee and Beulah Moor Children's Home
EL PASO — Who says you can't go home...
"Once I lived here and I was here I almost forgot that I wasn't at home. It was really a family. It was really a home," said Carlos Anguiano.
Anguiano revisits his home of four and a half years as part of the Lee and Beulah Moor Children's Home.
He entered the living situation as an eighth grader with a talent that would send him to the West Coast after graduating from El Paso High.
"The only thing that was really different from living at Lee Moor and being at home was that there was structure and discipline that just allowed me to better develop myself as a young adult," said Anguiano.
Anguiano now works as a visual effects artist in Los Angeles.
"I've worked on a couple of big blockbuster movies like Transformers 2, Iron Man 2. Most recently, I worked on Cowboys and Aliens and also Journey to Mysterious Island," said Anguiano.
Anguiano will share his inspirational story at the "I am the Future" Fashion Show... which will benefit his former home.
"We are just thrilled that he's come back to be a part of Lee Moor...he's always a part of Lee Moor...but that he's coming back to be apart of this event to tell people about his story and his time at Lee and Beulah Moor Children's Home...is special," said Lee and Beulah Moor Children's Home CEO Renee Tanner.
"We're just so, so proud of him. It's one of those things like, we always say thank you God for allowing us that opportunity," said Mario Ramirez, Anguiano's Cottage Parent.
The fashion show will take place tomorrow at Union Depot from 7 to 10:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $50 each.
