Belated and more complete photo array from the CREEC Inaugural Event

Can’t believe it’s already been a month since CREEC’s gala Inaugural Event!  Sophie blogged about it the week after, but since then, it’s been one durn* thing after another, so I haven’t gotten to post a more extended set of photos.

We were very lucky to have a donation-in-kind from Mary Lou Mobley of Foothills Fine Photography, so the photos are genuinely awesome.  What’s more, they involve many of my favorite people so I’ve really enjoyed seeing them.  If you like any of the photos of yourself or one of your loved ones — or some random person who Mary Lou has rendered in photographic awesomeness — you can order prints from Foothills Fine Photography’s SmugMug site.

 

Five white women (standing) and one white man (in wheelchair); all are in business/party garb.

CREEC staff:  Amy Robertson, Sophie Breene, Tim Fox, Sarah Morris, Casey Shea, and Marissa McGarry.  I promise I did not tell everyone to wear CREEC maroon!

 

Five people:  Asian man, African-American woman, white man, two white women.  All are standing except the white man, who is sitting in a wheelchair.

Thanks to everyone who came and those who contributed but couldn’t make it.  One of my favorite things about CREEC is that it gives us the excuse to hang out with all these amazing people.  Can’t wait til next year!
