Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation Event
Four members of The Photographic Society of Rhode Island – Leslie Jean, Sue Babin, Noreen Berthiaume, and Mike Di Stefano – volunteered to photograph the Kentucky Derby-themed “Our Heroes Fashion Show” held on May 5, 2018.
The gala evening started with dinner, then the presentation of awards. The main attraction began and our heroes got to strut their stuff down the runway. The men and woman in the show were all cancer survivors. As each person stepped up on the stage, their story was read to the audience by the emcees. The audience consisted of family and friends that cheered them on the whole way. The atmosphere that night was fun and happy, with a few emotional moments as some of the heroes took a moment to find their courage to step out into the spotlight.
This video is a compilation of images captured at the event.
Volunteer photographers from PSRI will be documenting the Gloria Gemma “Flames of Hope” Weekend events Friday, September 28 through Sunday, September 30. If you are a PSRI member and wish to volunteer for this effort details can be found in the PSRI News Blast.
