Last year I as fortunate enough to be welcomed into the Luke’s Wings family when I attended the Fashion Takes Flight fundraiser at the Longview Gallery in DC. For those who don’t know Luke’s Wings is an organization that provides transportation for the families of wounded soldiers so that they may be close to each other during the recovery process. Last year’s event raised close to $40,000 and was a wonderful event to be a part of.
I was fortunate enough to not only meet some new friends through this (Michael Domingo, Nakeva Corothers, Vithaya Phongsavan and JB Yong) but two of the soldiers who were in attendance that night, John and Joe were a joy to be around and their stories kept JB and I laughing at the after party.
On January 28th the Longview Gallery will once again host this great cause and I’m happy to have been one of the photographers selected to cover it once more.
