Well, this past Saturday evening I had the awesome privilege of shooting the Iredell Heart Ball for the American Heart Association! I’ve done a little volunteer work for the AHA here locally over the last few months and I must say that I’ve really enjoyed it! (Back in May I shot the Greensboro Heart Walk and then in November I photographed the Tanglewood Heart Walk)
Any hoot – Saturday evening the AHA held their annual ball to raise money for the local chapter. The night took place at the Statesville Civic Center and held a silent auction, a dinner, a live auction and several speeches. Oh – and dancing to the tunes provided by Johnny White and the Elite Band! The most entertaining moments of the night were during the live auction. Things got crazy and fun as people were bidding for things that had been donated. I’m talking everything from an Outback Steakhouse catered dinner party for 12 at your home to a weeks vacation to a home in Mexico! Yep, there were some pretty awesome items up for grabs.
Want to know something pretty amazing?! The goal for the evening was to raise $90,000… Well they raised over $150,000! How awesome is that?
I’ve posted a gallery below of some images from the evening for you to peruse. Hope you enjoy!
