Photos from 2014 Denim and Diamond Gala Now Available


Last friday, Nov. 14, 2014, the Junior League of Poughkeepsie hosted an annual gala fundraiser, the Denim and Diamond’s Gala. It was really a cool event!

As a photographer, I attend a lot of galas and dry corporate events. Some are less dry, for sure. This one, in particular, was stylish. Instead of high formal wear and a sit-down dinner, the event was more laid-back, with more fashionable outfits and a tasting menu, featuring several unique, local caterers.

As is fairly normal at events like this, there were three honorees. Two were “Women of the Year” – honored for their awesome work, and one non-profit – Sparrow’s Nest. I happen to have a connection with Sparrow’s Nest.

(They are a Hudson-Valley based charity that cooks and delivers meals to families whose moms are battling cancer. I spent the last several months fundraising and training for the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon with a team of outstanding and generous people!)

In any case, I rather enjoyed the denim and diamond theme and décor.
