The last 3 years I had the privilege to photograph and participate in an outstanding fundraising event! Elevate Elementary held their third annual gala at the Ascension Church. This year was the 1920's speak easy feel, this was a fitting and yet stunning location to celebrate and honor our future leaders and innovators. witnessing the amount of compassion these Teachers/ Staff and donors have for these children warmed my heart. They truly care about the welfare of our future.  The amount of funds raised for this event I know will go towards a great cause! It is sad to say this will be my last gala for the school. Thank you so much Elevate for allowing me to be apart of such a beautiful event and school!
