Raven Symone Shines at the Trevor Project Fundraiser

Raven Symone In Our Raven Necklace

Actress Raven Symone stepped out in support of this year’s Trevor Project fundraiser, hitting the red carpet on her way in. The beauty chose to don Lazaro’s one and only Raven necklace as an accessory, and who better to wear the distinctive Raven necklace than Raven herself?

The raven head pendant on the necklace is crafted out of sterling silver and python skin, and features a bold, bronze beak. It comes strung on a hematite and silver men’s necklace. Raven successfully made the necklace look like an extension of her unique styling, choosing to pair the accessory with a plunging dress and an asymmetrical haircut with grey toned hair.

Raven was one of the guest speakers at the event, and looked bold and at home when she took the stage. This year’s event was held in New York at the Marriott Marquis, which was hosted by Beth Behrs, and presented by Wells Fargo and Kevin Potter.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention for thelesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth ages 13 to 24. The organization was founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award winning short film entitled Trevor. The short film was inspired by some dismal facts about how much suicide affects the LGTBQ youth community, and aimed to bring awareness and support to the issue by telling a moving story about a boy who is rejected for his sexuality.

Raven Symone was not the only celebrity who showed up to support the Trevor Project organization this year, far from it. Guests also included (but were not limited to) Susan Sarandon, Rosie Perez, Victoria Justice, T.R. Knight, Brad Goreski, Alex Sharp, Adam Shankman, Lauren Patten, Alex Newell, Jeanine Tesori, Carmen Ejogo, Jordan Roth,Bridget Everett, Celisse Henderson, Kyle Dean Massey, Marc Shaiman, Michael Wartella, Adrienne Eller,Harmony Santana, Max von Essen, Well-Strung, Paul Dobie.

Raven Symone has no shortage of opportunity to share her opinions of timely topics, as she will be returning to the 19th season of The View as a co-host. That return to TV was a big step for the actress after retiring from her long career in the industry at the age of 27.  She quotes a mandatory work-life balance for keeping her happy in both her life and in her career.

"I've done a lot of things in my life that I've just had to smile through," she has said. “But now, I'm living life for myself."
