Can it be? Is this the first blog post that Amy managed to get me to do?? Jeff here. Thankfully you can't see how slow my one-fingered typing skills are.
Last week, Amy and I had the privilege to attend a fundraising Gala for our local hospital. It got me to thinking about how lucky we are to be so close to one (we literally drove there in two minutes when our son was about to be born) and about how I’ve always lived close to a hospital. In my youth I once cut my thumb at a restaurant job, and after I finished my shift washing the dishes with one hand in the air to slow the bleeding, I walked to the emergency department, got three stitches…and walked home at 5 am! Pretty certain I was late to school that day…
Since having kids, our hospital visits have increased dramatically. Thankfully, nothing major has been required, but there’s been stitches and fevers and injuries from falling off a wall… you know, standard kid stuff. But this Gala got me to thinking…what would life be like if we were even 30 minutes away?
We were very proud to be asked to take photos of the event, and support our local hospital in the best way were able to. With a very talented Auctionista and an amazing performance by the Good Lovelies we are happy to report over $50k was raised at the event! Below you will find some of the shots taken to cover the event.
Maybe - just maybe - I’ll contribute another blog post soon!
