The FLY Foundation Cocktail Party

A few months ago I was asked to photograph a wonderful event.  The FLY Foundation is a non-profit, standing for financial lift for young adults with cancer.  It was started by Julia after her battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to help other young adults (19-39) with the financial burden of cancer and it’s tolls.  In order to continue helping this unique group of individuals, the FLY foundation held a summer-time cocktail party in Bristol Harbor in Bristol, RI.  It was held under the  Herreshoff Waterfront Tent and turn out was amazing.  Hundreds of supporters purchased tickets, took a ride on the  Kestrel, and bid on silent auction items during this wonderful event.  I was truly honored to be the photographer for this event… so enjoy!

A few of the auction items:

In addition to the food, drink, and auction, the weather was a treat on its own!

Some of the amazing views in the Harbor:

A few words by the founders, Julia and Peter…

Annnd we’ll round it out with my two favorite photos from the evening…

Again, thanks for looking and I should have tons of postings in the next few weeks!  Been a busy bee!  Happy Summer!
