About a month ago we were fortunate enough to be asked to photograph and film the UVA Children’s Hospital’s Main Event at Keswick Hall. The Children’s Hospital is a leading center for children’s healthcare all over the mid-Atlantic region, and we were so excited to help such a great cause! The Main Event does a wonderful job raising funds for the Hospital (this year’s event raised $217,000!) and it is always so well put together! The theme for this year was “British Invasion”, so needless to say, the decorations were spectacular. I felt like each time I turned around I noticed something different! The guests were treated to beer and wine from Devil’s Backbone Brewing Co and Veritas Winery, and there was a silent auction with some pretty amazing items for the guests to bid on (like a portrait session from Aaron Watson Photography), and all the proceeds from the event and the silent auction went to support the UVA Children’s Hospital.
The hard working Main Event Committee, with help from the always superb MS Events, completely transformed the downstairs into a casino and dance floor which opened after the silent auction. It was so much fun to see everyone playing the games and dancing to some terrific music from DJ Brad Savage. Here are a few pictures of the decor from the Main Event, and of the amazing people and companies who made it all happen! We have also included our video from Exist N Motion Films, which will give you a great idea of what it was like to be there!
