Fundraising event for Sentebale { “Forget Me Not ” } | Greenwich Event Photographer

Sometimes an opportunity presents itself and at first glance we don’t always jump at it for various reasons.  So when first asked, I had to decline the opportunity.  Then it was presented to me a second time and  with a little time to think about it I decided to see what I could do.   With a bit of juggling , a high tail race from Central Park in Manhattan back to Greenwich, and a prayer for no traffic, I knew I would be able to work it out.  ( Thank you Buddy Toth for accommodating me in that little bit of juggling … you’re the best ! )

With that said ….   I had the pleasure of capturing a wonderful fundraising event that was coordinated by Emily Chalk of  East of Ellie Event Planning at the Greenwich Country Club .

The event  was sponsored  by The Bank Street Group ( Richard and Viosa Lakaj ) for the charitable organization Sentebale in the presence of HRH Prince Henry of Wales.

The beautiful decor and details were so elegantly brought together by the fabulous mother and daughter team from Pygmalion Design . The ambience wasn’t complete without the amazing Jazz and Swing sounds of Duchess Di and the Distractions and special guest singer Renee Olstead. If you EVER have a chance to see them live, I encourage you to do so.

It was an event and evening worth making a sacrifice for.

So without further ado, I present to you, a night honoring Sentebale and HRH PRince Henry of Wales….

Tidbits on Sentebale :

Founded in 2006, Sentebale’s mission is to transform the lives of Lesotho‘s orphans and vulnerable children who have been effected by the HIV/ Aids epidemic that is ravaging their country. The charity was founded by Prince Harry from the British Royal Family and Prince Seeiso from the Lesotho Royal Family. Sentebale’s name means “forget me not” in Lesotho and is a reminder of all of the children who need help here. Lesotho is a unique and beautiful country, but with extreme poverty and the third highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world that effects 33% of their adult population, it is a country in desperate need of help. With an estimated 400,000 orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho, Sentebale works with grass roots organizations to identify, support and empower these children to transform their own lives.

    Hi Nicole.I wrote you a few weeks ago about the Robin Long workshop. I am one of Kelli’s 2011 spnirg alums. Wish I could attend Robin’s workshop but it now looks like I will be in LA that week. I am taking Kelley Ryden’s workshop in a few weeks though.These are fantastic shots. Mind sharing the lens you used and what actions you are working with? If it’s easier you can email me instead of posting. Also, as I think you know I am based out of Hartford. I am looking for a location down south to meet a friend from NY for a shoot. Mind sharing your some locations in the fairfield area that I may be able to meet them at? I understand if you would rather keep them under wraps.
