Event: Love Thy Neighbor

We enjoyed an inspirational evening with The Harvest Center and special guest Kathie Lee Gifford tonight at the Westin, their biggest-ever "Love Thy Neighbor" annual fundraiser.  I was honored to help plan this event, to provide design of programs, banners and other visual marketing materials, and to participate as one of 900 guests in this lovely dinner!

I look forward to quality photography from the pros, but until then, share a few pre-party captures from this well-executed event.


"Angels In Our Midst", Anne Neilson

Busy this week (month, year) in preparation for the official launch of Anne Neilson's new book, "Angels In Our Midst".  On Oct 10, we'll celebrate with a launch luncheon at Charlotte Country Club, and on Oct 11 she'll sign books at her annual charity art show "Strokes of Compassion", which this year benefits The Harvest Center.

Harvest Center Christmas Project

This Christmas, my kind-hearted client Anne Neilson coordinated a colossal effort to provide a big Christmas for a lot of less fortunate families served by The Harvest Center

She and a dedicated group of friends and volunteers decorated three Harvest Center homes that serve as temporary housing for seven homeless families, gathered piles of stocking stuffers, went shopping to fulfill the wish lists of children whose single mothers are struggling to provide basic needs this season, then wrapped and delivered a decadent Christmas to over 75 needy Charlotteans.

I was proud to lend a hand with her solicitations for contributions, using email marketing, facebook, and blog postings to help coordinate the effort.
