Project H.O.M.E. held a networking and fundraising event at Dorrance Hamilton Hall on the Avenue of the Arts this Wednesday, and we were there to document the evening. The resulting photos show an inspiring mix of of children who have been aided by the group, adult Philadelphians of all ages who came out to support the cause, and community leaders, including Mayor Michael Nutter, speaking to the crowd.
The event was emceed by 6ABC’s Adam Joseph and included an introduction by Sister Mary Scullion, one of the founders of Project H.O.M.E. and a speech by Nikki Johnson-Huston, Esq. on her motivating journey from being homeless to becoming a lawyer.
A silent auction was held throughout the night as guests made bids on donated items that ranged from a diamond bracelet to a George Clooney-autographed man purse to dinner with Philadelphia Inquirer food critic Craig LaBan.
When Project H.O.M.E. contacted us to donate our services, we were thrilled. We’ve been wanting to get back into event photography, and this was a perfect opportunity. We love the Project H.O.M.E. motto, ‘None of us are home until all of us are home.’ Photos from the event will be used by the non-profit on their website and in future marketing materials
