PICTURE HOPE FOR HAITI: MARCH 2, 6 PM, CHEZ JEAN PIERRE, STAMFORD
It’s just the two of us back in the photo lab and some people talk a lot of nonsense.
I often think we should just go ahead and add the padded walls and call it what it is. Then again, I’m responsible for the vast majority of the neuroticism and delusional behavior.
So when Advocate photographer Kathleen O’Rourke proposed organizing an event to benefit Haiti earthquake relief efforts, I pretty much blew her off.
But the planning went from half-baked to realistic and it suddenly dawned on me; “Oh wait, you are actually going to do this?” I asked.
When the room started filling up with framed photographs for the silent auction, the answer was plainly obvious.
Now fully on board with the situation, I think it’s going to be a lot of fun and I hope you can join us next week.
Plus, there’s food involved:
Fairfield County photographers will present “Picture Hope for Haiti” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 2 at Chez Jean Pierre Restaurant, 188 Bedford St., Stamford.
The photography exhibit and silent auction will feature a collection of images from the area’s best-known and most inspiring photographers. Please join us for an evening of art and support a wonderful cause.
All proceeds from sale of the photographs will be donated to Doctors Without Borders and the relief effort in Haiti. Hors d’oeuvres and a complimentary glass of wine will be served and a cash bar will be available.
$25 suggested donation.
