Chefs Giving Back ~ South Park Magazine

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

If you know me, you know I love food, cooking, dining out and collecting cook books! I also love to tell stories of people who give back, pay it forward or contribute to their community.  So I was thrilled to work with South Park Magazine this month to photograph two top Charlotte chefs Gene Briggs and Paul Ketterhagen, and their special dishes for a feature on the upcoming March of Dimes Signature Chefs’ Auction November 3 at Carmel Country Club. Briggs, executive chef and partner of Blue Restaurant and Bar prepared a Rabbit Stifado and Ketterhagen, executive chef at Carpe Diem prepared a Tomato Cobbler. Both chefs will be participating in this special dinner to benefit the March of Dimes ~ Proceeds benefit the March of Dimes mission to promote healthy babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. You can read about the chefs, their dishes and their commitment to charities in the November issue of South Park Magazine and you can see the fun photographs I took here ~


Giving Back ~ The Light Factory Print Auction

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Charlotte area friends ~ Please mark your calendars for a fun-filled evening benefitting The Light Factory ~ Saturday, November 19 at 7 pm. I’ve donated this print – one of my favorites from this summer – to the auction – a b&w print of a rhododendron blossom taken this summer at beautiful Linville Falls and Gorge.  This print and many others will be on display and auctioned off at this annual fundraiser at Extravaganza on North Tryon.  The Light Factory is one of four museums in the US devoted to film & photography. We are so fortunate to have The Light Factory with us,  so please come on out and help support this Charlotte treasure.
