The annual gala fund raiser Cocktails for Cancer was held last night. This event helps to raise funds for Brain Cancer research. I have had the pleasure of photographing this fun event for a few years now. Cocktails for Cancer is the sister event for the South Ottawa Race Day which is held in the fall. These two events are spear headed by a hand full of dedicated women from our community.
These wonderful people came together to help raise money for Brain Cancer research after Brain Cancer effected one of their friends, Heather Geddie. You can learn more about their fund raising, become involved and donate at their website: http://www.southottawaraceday.ca.
Last night’s fun
Last night members of the Riverside South community and beyond got together to help raise money through a silent and live auction.
The evening also included some food, drinks and dancing to live music. I spent the first part of the evening photographing many of the guests on the red carpet as they arrived.
Later in the evening I recorded some of the fun and fundraising that went on.
