"An Evening With Thom Felicia"

It's been a busy week and again I had the honor of photographing an event "An Evening with Thom Felicia" presented by a very good friend of mine, Laura Ponticello of Laura's List: Books for Women and Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts.  The evening included a conversation with Thom Felicia, cocktails and a booking signing of his new book Style. Among being one of the sponsors of this event along with another friend and fellow photographer Andrea Casey Photography I would like to give a shout out to all the others who donated their time to help make this evening a success and for donating a portion of the ticket to the local Breast Cancer organization, Positively Pink Packages in honor of Thom's mother.

Here are all of the fabulous sponsors who made it all happen!

Want to Change the World? - Women's Fund of Central New York

On Tuesday April 28th, I had the honor of photographing this year's Women's Fund of Central New York event at the Bellevue Country Club.   This is a powerful organization aimed at helping young women and girls in Central New York to have the power in transforming their lives and community.  I was amazed at our community leaders who were in attendance and presented awards to this year's honorees.  Presenters from Joanie Mahoney, the Onondaga County Executive,  Debbie Sydow, President of Onondaga Community College and many more were inspiring in their words, but most of all it was great to see this community of women encourage the next generation of young women and girls.  Please visit their website and let's see what we can all do to be participants in our young women!!wf11wf2wf3wp4
