Two Great Causes

Raffle ticket, anyone?

This past weekend I had the true honor & pleasure of photographing and attending two wonderful events.  The first was The Main Event, Samaritan House‘s annual gala benefit.  This was my second year volunteering with Samaritan House, an amazing organization that supports San Mateo County, and photographing The Main Event.  Each year it gets better and better and it was a beautiful night of great people giving to a wonderful cause.  To top it off it was their 40th Anniversary!

Following this great event, was yet another great event down in Los Gatos where I had the privilege of photographing an event with Khen Rinpoche, Founder of the Siddartha School.  He travels the world teaching and sharing his wisdom with the world.  He gave a talk on attachment, shared his humor with us and guided a beautiful meditation.  Here are some shots from this once in a lifetime event.
