Take My Hand/ Nine Girls Ask 2015

The theme was "Take My Hand" for the 7th annual Nine Girls Ask for a cure for Ovarian Cancer luncheon. Joan Wyllie and her team of volunteers once again created an amazing event to help find a cure and to offer support and hope for women battling this "not so silent" disease.

The morning started with champagne, boutique shopping and silent auction items.

The guests were welcomed into the ballroom by guitarist and lead singer, "Super Diamond's" Randy Cordera from San Franscisco.  Inspiration came from a discussion between Liz Laats, survivor of Ovarian Cancer and Kelly Corrigan, NYT Best Selling Author. They invited everyone to take their hands and find a cure. After the program there was a hotly contested Live Auction with great items.
I am so honored to be a part of this event every year.

Kid's Turn Event at the Tin Roof

What a fun evening at the Tin Roof in downtown San Diego socializing and fundraising for a great organization. Kids’ Turn San Diego is a nonprofit organization that offers an effective educational program to help the whole family through separation, divorce and military transitions. You know that I am a big fan of kids and happy to support organizations that improve their lives.

Ann Marie Houghtailing performed her hilarious and insightful one woman show "Raising Humans" to a sold out audience and everyone had a great time, including me.

An inspiring afternoon at "Someone Lived" !

What a lovely afternoon with the Clearity Foundation at the home of Melissa and Jason Levin in the RSF area! I feel so fortunate to have been a part of this event for the 4th year volunteering my services and raffle prizes.  The event was to raise awareness, funds and to celebrate those who are helping find a cure and support women and their families with ovarian cancer. Clearity  was founded by Dr. Laura Shawyer to help ovarian cancer patients discover the best options for their cancer treatments.

I can't wait to create amazing photographic experiences for families that won my donated gift certificates at the raffle! Portraits of children and families are the heart of Luci Dumas Fine Photography and have been for over 30 years.

Enjoy the entire gallery of this event. Though these are created to support Clearity and share with the guest, if you are interested purchasing any for personal use you are welcome to contact me

MS Gala at Beautiful Loew's Coronado

The theme was "Agents of Change" and over $500,000 was raised to help create change...a world free of MS. The views from the hotel were glorious but the guests in their evening attire were even more gorgeous.  I have not met a nicer group of volunteers and the attendees seemed to be having a great time while supporting this dream of an end to MS.

Even though my first love and business is creating beautiful portrait that become art in my client's homes and a part of their family legacy, I love volunteering for such wonderful events and offering my portraits in the silent auction as well. Thanks to Jessica for including me!
