It was a busy weekend, but not with weddings or portraits as you’d normally expect, but instead at a pair of huge fundraisers.
The first was at an event on Friday night, the “Sunset Soiree” to benefit Lonetree elementary in funding their 2009/2010 projects for “Micro-Society”, science kits and other new technology that couldn’t be funded through the school district. I thought it would be a small casual event but to the benefit of the fundraiser I was greatly mistaken.
The silent auction along with cocktails kicked off the event, followed by dinner and a live auction.
Then of course this last saturday was the Furry Scurry out in Washington Park to benefit the Dumb Friends League.
I didn’t get a chance to grab too many pictures of the event this year, we did something a little different and setup a booth. Despite the cold and damp weather it was amazing to see the immense crowd turn out to support the League and raise over $865,000 for the care of homeless pets.
Thanks to all those people who swung by the booth to say hi.
