9008 Gala

Fun story: 
One of my favorite people in Seattle is this girl:


Meet Kelly. 
We are both from Santa Barbara. We technically grew up together. Meaning there are photos of us running around with other kids when we were knee-high...but we'd never actually hung out until a year ago when we connected back in Santa Barbara at a mutual friend's graduation party. We got to talking about Seattle and realized we lived a mile away from one another. We also realized that we should probably become really good friends ASAP. So...we did. 

Several months ago Kelly was offered a fabulous position at a nonprofit organization called World Concern. While I'm sad (read: morbidly depressed and inconsolable) that she will be leaving soon to move to KENYA, I'm so proud of their new Communication Liaison!


A fundraising gala was held in her honor recently and I was blessed to be a part of the night. Obviously the camera came along...

Ha. I was just thinking, sometimes it pays to go to a family function (Amanda's grad.) Great photos, cool venue.

Gah! I totally missed out! This looks like it was tons of fun for everyone! I even recognize some folks who were there. There's even that Leo Tolstoy guy. Great photos and it looks like you all did an awesome job organizing the event.

You guys are so uberhip up there in Seattle. I think Kelly should bag all that life changing, world changing, stuff and just stay near you and be your friend. Sorry Kelly, guess you had to drink all that fundraiservino for nothing.
