I provided event photography coverage for this year's friends-of-we-care charity gala. Friends of we care is a charity organization that focuses on helping kids with disabilities. The organization is supported by over 80 companies in the food service and hospitality industry. Since its inception, almost 40,000 children with special needs are able to participate in summer camps across Canada. The annual charity dinner is the organization's key fund-raising events. This year's gala was hosted by Kevin Frankish and Michael "Pinball" Clemons. Over 500 guests attended and showed their support.
I was fortunate to photograph and document this meaningful event. Here are some photos from the evening.
Kentucky Derby was the theme for the evening. The lady in the middle won the best dress award.
