Imagine a Cure for Leukemia

2008 marks the third year in a row for a really really great charity fund raiser that both Dave and I love to support. Imagine a Cure for Leukemia is an event to raise awareness and funds for Leukemia research and one day find a cure. Nara Abrams developed and organizes this event as Co-Chair and had us along to document this important occasion. With the recent loss of Nara’s Mother to Leukemia it was an emotional night for all involved. This being such an serious message we were so honoured for the third year in a row, to be the official Photographers of this cause.

We arrived outside of the Capitol Theatre on Yonge st. and saw the crowd of people already milling both inside and out. Arriving so early in the evening, we knew there was going to be a large crowd if so many were already here. Dave and I waited in line for our press passes. Dave commented that he was so happy that every year the event gets bigger and bigger. The word is out there and the awareness is growing. Events like these help so much, more then we know. I pulled out our shot list and Dave was pumped to start right away. That was fine with me, there was just so much to photograph. So many vendors were on board…We had Starbucks Coffee, NYF New York Fries (I resisted…but don’t know how), Dairy Queen, (ok… I couldn’t resist) Cupcakes…Bite Catering had a gorgeous cupcake display set up, pink frosting as far as the eye could see. Did I mention all the wonderful hors d’oeuvres? My goodness…the food was seriously delectable!

We met so many generous, kind people they were all just there to support the cause make a difference. It was getting really busy now as the crowd moved toward the stage of the Capitol Theatre, there were sooo many supporters. We made our way to the front to get some shots of the singer Daphne entertaining us all in the crowd. Daphne has a beautiful voice and captivated us all with her music. It was a really well put together and well organized event. There were so many wonderful prizes like autographed NHL Hockey Jerseys and Spa Getaways, oh and WestJet gave away a round trip for two anywhere in Canada to one lucky winner!! All in all it was a great night, a great event for a great cause and we can’t wait to be part of it all next year.
