I think it’s safe to say the fundraiser for Heather Morton was a success!
BIG THANKS to everyone that helped make the event possible.
And cheers to all 250+ people that came to the Gladstone on Sunday.
I’m bad at math but I know we managed to raise a lot of money.
Expect a wrap-up post from Heather in the near future.
In the meantime, feel free to revisit the features I posted to help promote the event:

One last feature! Toronto-born, NY-based photographer Naomi Harris was kind enough to donate an image to Heather’s fundraiser AND was a guest speaker at the event. Naomi just launched her brand new website and is active on Twitter. Her book, America Swings, was published by Taschen and is available on Amazon. Naomi has started to spend more time shooting in Canada and is currently working on a 6-week-long project for the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
