Each year, I have a goal of donating at least one photo shoot session to a nonprofit organization.
This year, it was an honor to donate two photo shoot sessions to:
- The 2017 Newborn Foundation Awards Babies & Badasses Gala Fundraiser (www.newbornfoundation.org) supported by the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Annamarie Saarinen, Co-founder & CEO, Newborn Foundation | Coalition, is a neighbor. As a Minnesota Parental Advocate, Annamarie paved the way for the inclusion of Pulse Oximetry Testing in Newborn Screening across the United States.
- The 2017 Epilepsy Foundation Rise Above Seizures Gala Fundraiser (www.epilepsyfoundationmn.org), was sponsored by Medtronic, the world's largest medical technology company with headquarters in Fridley, MN.
Heartfelt thanks to attendees for supporting local and global not-for-profit efforts ~ Julie
