International Surgical Foundation ~ Event Photographer Scottsdale ~

I’ve worked with the International Surgical Foundation on numerous events (see my other posts especially the Surgeries in Domincan Republic) and there are always a lot of laughs but it’s never forgotten that the purpose is to raise funds to bring help to those in need.  The Venue in Scottsdale provided an amazing location.   The event was hosted by Kaley O’Kelley from 3TV and Kwamie Lassiter (who has his own foundation as well) and Junior Spivey came to lend their support as well.  Great job and effort done by all.

SIlicon Valley Rocks at DNA Lounge ~ Music Photography San Francisco ~

A great time was had by all at DNA Lounge’s Silicon Valley Rocks event to help bring music and keep it in schools so that kids may rock on for years to come.  I was happy to share in the music and fun with such a great group of people.

Happy Birthday Ms. Marian Brown!

Ms. Marian Brown, one of the Vivian and Marian Brown twins who is a true icon to San Francisco, celebrated her birthday at the Sir Francis Drake hotel and her fans came to celebrate this day with her.  Sadly, her sister Vivian had died just two weeks before and her departure was truly felt by Marian who’s birthday wish was for Vivian to share the day with her.  I’m honored to have been a part and been blessed to know her.

Equality California Event at The Fairmont Hotel ~Event Photographer San Francisco~

I had the pleasure of photographing the Equality California Charity Event last week and it was a great time for all.  Held in the ballroom of The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, the charity event raised over $45,000 to support the LGBT community.

Senator Dianne Feinstein received an award from the group honoring her support of the LGBT community.    The adorable Wilson Cruz of film and TV fame did a great job hosting and the crowd just loved Thelma Houston.  Ms. Houston sang all her old signature songs and just had people dancing in the aisles.  It was a fantastically fun charity event to photograph and I hope the photos show that!  Who says a corporate event photographer can’t have fun.

 

Asian Pacific Islander Benefit at Design Center ~San Francisco Event Photographer~

I had the pleasure of photographing the Bloom Gala at the San Francisco Design Center for the Asian and Pacific Islander Wellness Benefit.  It was definitely a successful event with an auction and speakers that ranged from Dr. Sanjay Gupta from CNN, local AIDS awareness spokespeople and politicians Fiona Ma and Phil Ting promoting health in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.  It was a night of great food from Yank Sing, Anzu, Jasmine Gardens, KC Catering, Le Soleil, Mercury Lounge, Patisserie Phillipe, Poleng Lounge and Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Cuisine.  The entertainment–Good Asian Drivers–was truly unique with a mixture of poems, rap, singing and laughter.
