Event Photography | Make A Wish Idaho

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.
