The last two weekends kept me busy shooting for two charities. On April 27, it was the Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation’s Run for Our Heroes 5K. This is my 5th year shooting this event and I am glad to have the opportunity to serve as one of their photographers as I worked for the Raleigh police department in the Summer of 1997 when Detective Paul Hale was killed in the line of duty. With this year’s run, the funding goal for a new memorial to be located in front of city hall has been met and should be in place for next year’s event.
My most recent shoot was for Band Together and the culmination of a year’s hard work for Matt with Band Together and Sarah from the Tammy Lynn Center with the concert at Koka Booth Amphitheater featuring Mac & Juice Quartet, Chatham Co. Line, Delta Rae and Lyle Lovett on Saturday may 4th. The final total for funds raised this year was around $852,000. This money will go the Tammy Lynn Center for developmental disabilities to provide much needed enhanced technologies at the center.
