On Saturday, November 12 of 2016, I was asked by photographer Ira Wexler if I could photograph an event at the Capital Hilton in Washington DC on November 18. Mr. Wexler was unable to do so, and explained that it was important work and that it was for a friend. It was short notice, but it turned out I was available, so I agreed, mainly because it mattered to Ira. Little did I know then how significant this would prove to be, and how much I would enjoy being of service and a part of the evening. http://www.jsmff.org/3rd-annual-gala-wows-hundreds/
The event was the annual fundraiser for the John S. Mulholland Family Foundation (jsmff.org) and is the only fundraiser they have each year.
What do they do, you ask? Their only purpose is to “feed the the working poor of Washington, DC, supporting the work of food pantries at St. Thomas More and St. Francis Xavier Churches in Southeast and Holy Name Church in Northeast.”
“JSM collects and delivers canned and packaged food weekly. Monetary contributions are used to purchase and deliver fresh produce, milk and eggs, poultry and meat. We also like to think we deliver hope and dignity. The Foundation is completely volunteer, with no paid staff or directors, relying solely on the generosity of our donors and supporters.”
It was a privilege to take part. Many thanks to Ira Wexler for introducing me to Brian Mulholland and making it possible to be of service to the efforts of his family’s foundation.
Among many Washington notables, Greta Kreuz was the keynote speaker this evening.
