Smiley Riley Silver Ribbon Ball
There are occasions when my work takes me on a journey into the hearts of those who engage my services as a photographer. Such an event came my way over the weekend when I was asked to supply print on the night photography for the Smiley Riley Silver Ribbon fund raising event at York Racecourse.
If you aren’t aware of this non-profit making organisation…then you should be!
The full story of Riley is told on their website HERE.
It was quite a humbling experience to meet Riley’s parents Lindsay and Gavin who have only recently suffered the tragic loss of little Riley. They are such a lovely couple.
I, like you dear reader, can only imagine what they have gone through and their respective families too. Therefore, please do click on the link above and read their story…and please consider making a donation too whilst you’re there.
The event went extremely well with entertainment provided by York band The Mothers and an auctioneer borrowed from Minster FM radio. Generous prizes were donated from many local businesses for the auction and the “gift tree”. Many guests came to visit our event studio which created some hilarious moments for all to enjoy. At the moment of writing I don’t know the total of the funds raised, but it will all go to this worthy cause which I am delighted to have contributed to.
Here’s some fun shots from the night.
