May 6th I had the pleasure to help out with an event for The Laurel Centre (http://www.thelaurelcentre.com/home/) in Winnipeg with their Night of T.L.C. Fundraiser. It was a night of great Jazz music by the Brooke Van Ryssel Trio (https://www.facebook.com/brookevanrysselmusic), one of the best fashion shows I had attended, partly because of what the center works towards. http://thelaurelcentre.com/home/
“The Laurel Centre provides individual and group counselling to women who have experienced childhood and / or adolescent sexual abuse.“
They provided an amazing photobooth and show for me to photograph! It was a truly fantastic night!
As a male photographer I don’t get many chances to help the community through these organizations. It should be obvious that I’m a feminist, but find that as a man I’m frequently overlooked as someone that might like to volunteer. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with The Laurel Center for this cause. Thank you, and I’m so happy this event was such a success!
