Marianne and I are always down to donate our time and money to charitable organizations and causes. A very wise mentor/former boss of mine always talked about how community should always be a part of your life - it's all about giving, whether it be your time or money, to others who need it most. So when Jeanne asked us, I was more than happy to donate our photography coverage to help out her cause!
Beats for Japan was a fundraising event held at Azul in San Francisco which was aimed to help raise money for the relief effort in Japan. According to Jeanne, that night they raised over $1800, with all proceeds going to Relief International!!! Wow!!! The event was definitely a success!! There was a great turnout, everyone had an awesome time partying, and at the same time, we were able to raise money for a great cause!
The photos I took at the event were available for download by the guests for $3 each. All the proceeds raised through the purchase of the downloads are going to Relief International.
Here are a few photos from that night! Enjoy!
There was a raffle for awesome prizes: an inspiration book package from Franco Gulia Delosreyes, clothing from the Continous Line, a shooting package from Jackson Arms, and even a private surfing lesson!
Great job, Jeanne!! I'm proud of you!
