Back in Florida to Photograph Fundraiser
The Tri County Humane Society’s 8th annual fundraiser dinner and dancing event in Boca Raton, Florida is coming up on March 21, 2010 – the Doggie Ball. All proceeds from the dinner, live and silent auctions go to help the thousands of abandoned, abused and homeless animals they rescue every year.
I started volunteering at Tri County walking dogs a few years ago. They run a clean, friendly, no-kill animal shelter for dogs, cats and the occasional rabbit or guinea pig. I let them know I was a photographer and willing to lend my skills should they need professional photographs. My first gig was photographing dogs with Santa! That turned out to be quite humorous. Then I joined the fundraising committee and was on a team that helped raise major money for the shelter and the animals. It’s all about the animals. I’m a big animal lover, especially dogs. Anybody who knows me, will tell you how I visit with every dog I pass on the sidewalk, in the park, wherever. I’m drawn to them and they recognize a friend when they see one. My second photo gig was photographing the Tri County Humane Society Fundraiser event itself last March 2009. I’m back now for the second year. I’m really looking forward to seeing the dogs and taking them out for walks once again.
It’s nice to be back.
