I’ve been a big fan of Tu Nidito’s work with children in tough situations since I first covered their events while working at the newspaper. I’ve had the chance to do some volunteer photography work with them over the years, and you can’t help but have your heart melt when you meet some of the kids they’ve helped. Both the organization and their fundraising efforts have come such a long way over the years!
Sarah and I spent last night making photos at their high-fashion fundraiser Cirque du Couture, held at Casino del Sol and sponsored by the Tucson Ladies Council. It was truly a gala event, with a who’s-who guest list, remarkable Cirque-themed decor and performers, incredible food from Tucson’s finest, auctions with amazing swag, a stunning runway show, and a riotous after party with Tucson retro-rockers Eighties and Gentlemen. It was a roaring success and a darn good time.
Here are a few teasers, and those interested in the full take can register here to get an email when they’re posted (and get a nifty little gift certificate towards prints to boot.) Hats off to all those who worked so hard to make last night an amazing success, and many thanks to the donors who so generously helped insure Tu Nidito’s future good works!
