Southwest Care Center's AID and Comfort Gala 2011 {Santa Fe Wedding Photography}

Southwest Care Center provides comprehensive medical care, research, education, prevention and support services to people affected by HIV/AIDS and related conditions in New Mexico. Every year they hold a fundraising gala. It has the reputation of being one of Santa Fe's best parties.

A friend on the planning committee asked if I would consider volunteering photography. How could I say no to an issue that is so near and dear to my heart? My husband's cousin died of AIDS in the 90's. The theme for the fundraiser was "BOND ~ James Bond." Everything was done with the utmost of care, the decorations were outstanding, the entertainment was awesome, the food was amazing, the donations for the silent auction were wonderful and the generosity with which everyone donated their time was truly heart warming. Clearly there are a lot of people in this town who care about this issue. It took place at the beautiful Hilton of Santa Fe with the help of Hugh Thomas, the Director of Catering.

Guests enjoyed dancing. 

Martini's were poured through a 9mm ice sculpture gun.

Guests had fun playing Roulette.

Donated jewelry for the silent auction.

More items were auctioned, like this stunning necklace. All proceeds going to Southwest Care Center.

I also had the pleasure of working with three wonderful photographers who donated their time to this event.
