On May 2nd 2015 we held a Mother's Day Portrait Session fundraising event at Orbit Studios in Minneapolis. We are happy to announce we raised $8,000 together! More than 32 families, Mom's, Grandma's and children came to capture generations in one family portrait to support Road to Freedom Scholarships. Orbit Studios generously donated the space and more than 25 women donated their time and showed up to work the event, making it run as smoothly as only a large group of producers can do! We had 6 hair and make-up artists, 5 photographers, 3 digital tech's, and a babysitter for the children to help kids craft and create Mother's Day cards.
Laura Bonicelli and Laurie's Touch catering donated glitter cupcakes, and Cub Foods, Coborn's of Delano and Jimmy John's donated food for the crew and mimosa's for the mom's! Mom's were pampered and it all came together to capture a lot of memories! Women raising money for the kids of Kibera!
We wish to thank Michelle Allen of Michelle Allen Photography http://www.michellempls.com/ for all of her dedication to make this event a success! We are also grateful to all of the women who donated their time to work the event and create a special day for the families that came to have a photo session. A big thank you to all of you who came for a portrait session and helped support the RFS kids! This will hopefully become an annual event!
