Charity Event for Leukemia

Imagine A Cure for Leukemia was born in 2006 with the purpose of providing hope, strength and courage for people with Leukemia. Since 2007, Charlotte and I have proudly been photographing this important charity fund raising event.

As with every year, this event proved to be a blast! The silent auction is always a highlight, as well as the great food that’s served throughout the evening. If I was a bigger hockey fan, the signed jerseys may have meant more to me! Charlotte and I were honoured to be able to donate one of our pieces (Scrub Fires Are Coming) from our recent Contact Exhibition.

The Capitol Theatre is an awesome location for a charity fund raiser like this one – plenty of floor space, a very cool bar and an awesome stage for the musical perfomance of Anna Cyzon. Speaking of which, we were blown away by Anna’s awesome vocal skills… check out Anna’s site if you get a moment.

I’m not sure if you’ll notice, but the photo above with the balloons is packed with our events cards… very cool little bit of cross promotion I thought 🙂 Thanks for that Nara.

It was also nice to catch up with a friend of ours, Keith, who was running his very cool Snapshot Photobooth. Keith’s in the picture on the bottom right of the next four photos, along with his lovely wife.

As you can see, the energy in the room was buzzing and everybody had an awesome night! Thanks to Nara for organizing this wonderful and worthwhile event – and to everybody who came out in support of this important cause.
