We are helping out with most of the Angel on My Shoulder events this year, taking photos. Most of the events I label private and I feel I can’t share with you. These are cancer retreats, retreats for the caregivers of cancer patients and kid/teen camps for children with a loved one who has/had cancer. But this was one weekend full of fun that I feel pretty safe sharing. Lolly (the happy lady pictured above) is the founder of the organization and one energetic lady!
Do you know which Green Bay Packer that is? One of the things that impresses me most about this organization is that they are completely run by volunteers. No one draws a salary so all the funds raised goes right back into helping people.
These photos were taken at the Party with the Pack dinner and above you see Gilbert Brown posing with some fans. He was really nice, only giving me crap a time or two.
Leroy Butler happily signed autographs. And I managed to get both of their signatures before we left.
The next morning a few lucky people got to have breakfast with Leroy and Gilbert. They weren’t much in a mood for photos that early in the morning, until I told them that this couple (Wolf Pack owners) would be feeding them. Then they ran to the sign to pose for a moment. Btw, the Wolf Pack Café has awesome food if you’re ever in St Germaine.
This young man, Austin DeGroot, has an incredible voice(!) and leukemia.
After breakfast we were off to the golf course. They had about 200 players sign up for the Golf Spectacular, which is their biggest fundraiser each year.
Everyone took it in stride while we stalked them all for photos. We even earned the nickname of Paparazzi, in a loving way.
Aren’t long lenses great?!
Oops, that’s not a golfer.
It was an exhausting couple of days, but loads of fun too! I know this post is a little long but when you know that we took over 1500 photos, you know I weeded a bit.
The evening ended with a dinner and auction.
These are annual events and if you’re interested in being a part of next year’s just go to the Angel on My Shoulder website. (PS ~ there’s a wine tasting event coming up in September. We’ll be there snapping photos *hint hint*)
