A few weeks ago I was given the rare opportunity to photograph an event that would help make a change for the better in many people’s lives. Yes it had awesome food thanks to the many great chefs that took part in the event, but the thing I liked the most about the event was the people. It was put on by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which has been instrumental in finding treatments and, as I saw at the event, supporting the families.
The event was held at the beautiful Carolina Club on the UNC campus. (Brides, if you are looking for an amazing venue make sure you look at the Carolina Club.)
Live music was provided by the Gravy Boys Band.
I did not have any because I was photographing, but I was told by many people that the wine was wonderful.
One of the things I enjoy about being a photographer is the ability to see what is happening behind the scenes, which included the chefs working and having fun.
It was not all fun and games in the kitchen, as course after course of delicious food emerged from the kitchen.
Following the dinner there was a live auction that started off with a lesson in value versus cost, then went on sell to some fabulous items.
Wrapping up the events for the night was an awards ceremony for some very special people that have done a lot in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. I caught this just prior to Jim Goodmons speech where he appeared to be speaking with the young girl, who has cystic fibrosis.
