Aug 8, 2011 The Hamels Foundation 2nd Diamonds & Denim Event


THURSDAY   |   THE CRYSTAL TEA ROOM

Wow!  Everyone was here for The 2nd Hamels Foundation Diamonds & Denim event at The Crystal Tea Room.  I wish I could have stayed for the Silent Auction and Dinner but I had to cover an important wedding rehearsal slotted for this weekend.

Anywho, I was lucky enough to cue up for the Red Carpet Walk (I had a good location too).  This event photography stuff is rough and Philly event photographers are like Philly fans- sharks and unforgiving.  :  P

One of the Live auction items was the Phillies Pennant signed by the Philadelphia Phillies!  Yep,  signed by the entire 2011 Philadelphia Phillies team and set in a custom display case and there where things up for auction valuing over $15,000 but the biggest value is what the Hamels are doing for the children of the City of Philadelphia.

The Hamels’ sincere wish is to provide hope to the children of Philadelphia who need it most.  The Hamels Foundation has given some of the largest grants in Philadelphia.  Annual grants are awarded to the Philadelphia Public Schools that serve students deemed “at-risk” due to low socio-economic conditions Please check out their website (www.thehamelsfoundation.org).

    • Thanks, it was great seeing you there too. I sent Robert an email… you got 189 “Hits” so far today on the images. Maybe we’ll see you for the P3 project later this year.
