Every so often a charity comes along that really means something to me. I feel blessed to be able to offer my photographic services, from time to time, to an organization that’s doing so much…especially for children. My friend Amanda Polk hosted a warm-up party at the Hotel Washington to raise awareness and funds for KEEN (Kids Enjoy Excercise Now) along with NBC Sports Anchor and Honorary Chairwoman, Lindsay Czarniak. The sold-out crowd included KEEN founders Elliott and Estee Portnoy, Holidae Hayes, Cindy Jones, Sharon Dougherty, Roby Penn, Aaron Jackson, stylist Lana Orloff, Pamela Sorensen, and designer Matt Landsberg. The raffle of prizes, which included a Michael Jordan-signed basketball, a two-night stay at the W, President’s Club tix to a Nats game, and gift certificates to Darlington House, raised over $2,000. The Warm-up party is the kick-off for KEEN’s biggest fundraiser of the year, KEENfest, which will be held on October 29, 2009.
