Camp Ooch Fundraising Gala at The ROM

While Dave’s off having a fun time shooting Alison and Jason’s engagement shoot today in Liberty Village. I’m here in my office working like a busy bee getting caught up on the office work. We’re happy we could get their session in just in time for their wedding this month at Graydon Hall, here in Toronto. With the unpredictable weather we’ve been having we’ve had to reschedule due to thunderstorms, but today was the perfect day for a fun city engagement session.

This post is from a few months back but I’d love to share it with you all. Dave and I are very passionate about working with local Toronto Charities and Camp Oochigeas is definitely one of our faves. Camp Oochigeas is a amazing camp for kids with cancer, where they can go to play and have fun with other kids and still continue to undergo their chemotherapy treatments. Camp Ooch also provides kids with 680 year round programs at no cost to the families. It’s such an important, life changing experience for the kids that’s why this charity is so close to our hearts!

We were so honoured to be asked this year to cover the gala and auction at The ROM, Royal Ontario Museum. The lavish gala raised over half a million dollars in one evening and had over 700 of Toronto’s most generous in attendance. The evening hosted a very special spokesperson, child actress and cancer survivor, Heidi Hayes. Heidi spoke about how Camp Ooch changed her life and helped her through the really tough times while she battled cancer. She also spoke about all of the great friends she made while along the way. You may recognize her from her hit movies History of Violence with Viggo Mortensen. There were a lot of tears, laughter love at the gala and we were so happy to be a part of it all. If you’d like to donate to Camp Ooch and help a local child’s  fight please do so here DONATE.
