Love is... | april

"We make a living by what we get and we make a life by what we give" -Winston Churchill

Its that time again!
This month's Love is... highlights a charity near and dear to my heart. The Make-a-Wish foundation.
I have dreams of working with this charity in crazy capacities....*sigh*... it truly is my heart.

Anyway, last weekend I had the opportunity to join the Marantz Duo to shoot the annual make-a-wish foundation gala for the Connecticut chapter. The quote at the top were the words used to open the event.

The gala honored lil' miss Teagan who was granted a wish to visit a dude ranch. Teagan happened to have her LAST round of chemotherapy the day before the gala, so the evening was truly a celebration of life.

A little auction action. Through the silent and live auctions in addition to extra giving, the event raised $90,000 for Make-a-Wish in ONE evening. it was AMAZING!
The one thing I didn't quite understand was why someone would pay $5100 for Yankees tickets... but whatever, its for charity, right? ;)

"Love is" - reminds me of the old "Love Is" London Tube posters. Way cool.
