MISCELLANEOUS - In Support of A Great Cause

It's been almost 11 months since my last post.  Where have I been? What have I been doing?

I'm still here!  I've been taking photographs.....of so many different things.  I somehow lost track of my blog and my newsletter, but I'm hoping to get things back in order soon!  There are so many things to get caught up on.

And what better way to start that off again than by writing about a great cause that I am supporting.

A good friend of mine has organized two fundraising events in November where he and his band will be performing.  Proceeds from these two events will be donated to Pancreatic Cancer Canada.

Those of you who know me, know that I have several reasons to want to support causes raising awareness and funds to help find a cure for cancer.  I've said it before, and I'm not the first to have said it, but, Cancer Sucks!

At these events, you will find a silent auction, a 50/50 draw, some awesome music (personally, some of my favourites...yes, music from the 80's!!) and I will be there at both events hosting a photo booth style area. You can come and have some photos taken with some fun props for a donation to Pancreatic Cancer Canada.  You'll be able to download high resolution files of your images within a few days following each event.  It's a great way to remember that you were there (hopefully with friends and/or family) and had an amazing time.

I have also donated a few things which I think are going to be used for the silent auction and perhaps door prizes.  Here is a list of what you will be able to find.  If you've been wanting to schedule a photo session with me but maybe just haven't been able to time it right, I think now would be the perfect time to bid on one of these items!!  I know a couple of you who have been wanting to get some headshots done.....*hint* *hint*  :)

What kind of music is the band playing??

What if I can't make it to either event, but I want to support the cause??

Well, it's too bad I won't get to see you there, but it's awesome that you want to help support the cause.  There are a few ways you can do that:
  • Go to http://romansempire.ca/ and buy a ticket anyways
  • Go to http://romansempire.ca/ and click on the 'Donate Now' button on the home page below where you can purchase tickets.  :)
  • Have someone who is going to an event bid on some silent auction items for you.  ;)
  • Spread the word and tell your friends so maybe some of them will make it out!!
You can keep up to date with what's going on by following Rise of the Roman Empire's Facebook Page.  Just click that link and 'like' their page.

I hope to see some of you in November!!!! :)
