GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis | Inaugural Fundraising Event | 2016

I’m not one for long blog posts because I like letting my images speak for me. However, I think this post needs a little background. Not necessarily to explain what I documented, but to bring awareness to the amazing mission that these dedicated folks are a part of.

Recently, I had the honor of shooting the Inaugural Fundraising event¬† for GiGi’s Playhouse – Annapolis. The event was hosted in the gorgeous showroom at Sheehy Lexus in Annapolis, Md and showed the culmination of the efforts of some amazing and very dedicated people.

So what’s GiGi’s Playhouse? Founded by 2016 CNN Hero Nancy Gianni, Gigi’s Playhouses are the only network of Down Syndrome achievement centers in the United States. Promoting learning and a sense of community, these centers aim to serve members of the Down Syndrome community and their families by offering free classes and other opportunities for educational and life-skills growth. While locations exist nationwide, there isn’t one in this area. Let’s bring this amazing place of empowerment and acceptance to our own community.

These guys were the best, helping it all come together!

The silent auction was amazing. I wanted everything there!

 

Oh, the eats and sweets! (Shout out to the guy from Iron Rooster who didn’t judge me when I ate my weight in their homemade pop-tarts!)

We heard from some amazing folks in the GiGi’s community. Baltimore’s own Justin Berk, meteorologist extraordinaire and really cool guy, was the event’s keynote speaker.¬†

The photo booth was manned by amazing friend and super talented photographer, Stacy L.

Thank you to everyone who made this event possible – sponsors, donors, guests, and volunteers – with continued support GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis will be here!

Generation G! Believe in our build!
