It was a cool June evening when David and I headed over to the Sheraton Boston to meet up with photography team members Jean and Rich to photograph BUILD Fest Pitch Challenge for the third year in a row. Our client, BUILD Greater Boston, was primed for another great event. The student business expo/fundraiser was a great success. Three high school entrepreneurs pitched their business models to a group of judges for a chance to win the grand prize of $2,000! Rich was ready with a fun selfie station photo booth, and Jean and David were ready to cover the business expo and gala. I was shooting some video and checked out the event to blog about it again.

I arrived at the Hynes Convention Center to meet Michele from Rosie’s Place for the annual Funny Women, Serious Business 2017 fundraiser lunch event to experience this special occasion first hand. As a woman from Massachusetts, I have been aware of Rosie’s Place for many years. I first became aware of the shelter and the Women’s Craft Cooperative when I saw the button brooches that were sold at Frugal Fannies a number of years ago. Their mission to not only provide a safe place for women, but to also provide services to help them stand on their own intrigued me. Shortly after arriving at the event, then caught up with our partner photographer Leise who was there to cover the festivities.
