Event Photography for non-profits and charity organizations is something I really love to do. These organizations need all the help they can to promote their organizations. Having high-quality event photographers from their fundraisers is a much-needed marketing tool for these organizations.
Make A Wish of Idaho and the Boise State Athletics department host a “Serving Up Wishes” event every year. I was on hand and in charge of the event photography at this past year’s fundraiser.
What Is “Serving Up Wishes”?
The events of the evening included:
- Boise State student-athletes showcasing their many talents to the delight of the event guests.
- A sit-down dinner
- Live auction
- Presentation from a wish child and/or their family highlighting their special wish experience.
Life-changing wishes for children with a critical illness are funded with the money raised at this yearly event. To learn more about some of these children and their wishes you can go to this Make A Wish Idaho’s page. It features just a few of the many stories from the lives they have touched.
The BSU Marching Band started the evening’s fundraiser off with a BANG!
