Ok, so you are about to see the kind of event you will be treated to when you are incredibly generous to children. When I say generous, I mean ridiculously generous… Now I can’t even joke about being able to support a donation as generous as these guests do year after year…luckily, I work here 😉
Seriously though, the Children’s Circle of Care has a yearly event for generous supporters hosted in a different city every year, and this year’s event was hosted by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. I was invited to shoot the decor and details of the final day by my good friends at PRA Destination Management – and what a day!! This event featured a full day schedule: performances by the Southwest Dekalb Marching Band, the Falcons Cheerleaders, Falcons players, and Jeff Foxworthy at the Georgia Dome, followed by a beautiful reception and dinner at the Georgia Aquarium, and it all ended in a big tent at Pemberton Place with a fantastic performance by Lionel Ritchie! WOW!!!
The Aquarium event was absolutely AMAZING! The decor was just beautiful….
Finally, it makes my heart sad to say I could not (by contract) take any photos of the Lionel’s performance. I was able to shoot the tent – which should give you some indication of how incredible the experience actually was. On the other hand, it made my heart pretty happy to put down my camera and dance a jig to “Dancin’ on the Ceiling”!
Thanks again to the wonderful team at PRA, to my studio manager Peter for making himself available at the last minute to help out with the shoot, and to my wife, Angel, for making it just in time to cut a Lionel Ritchie rug with her old man!!! Hellooo, is it meee your looking forrrr…..
