This October, I had the great honor of volunteering my time photographing at Venue One. It was the 12th Annual St. Jude Harvest Moon event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Most people are connected in some way to a child or person who has fought, continues to fight, or who has won the battle over many forms of cancer. This event in particular raised over $113,000 for the research hospital! It was an awesome night to be a part of and witness. Many restaurants and vendors volunteered their time for a great cause and I was thrilled to be included.
The Silect Auction. So many cool prizes to bid on!Venue One is such a great open space!The guest of honor, and cancer survivor, Lindsay, went around and thanked each restaurant for donating their time and food for the event with a special plaque. 🙂The presenting sponsor : Joe Caltabiano of Guaranteed Rate.Lindsay gave such a beautiful and power speech about how St. Jude supports their patients for life. <3Time for the band!
