Make-A-Wish’s Wine for Wishes event is an extra special event for us. Not only is it a great night filled with some of the very best food and drink vendors in the area, and not only does it support a cause that we believe it so very much, but it also is the marker for our work with this wonderful charity. Wine for Wishes was the very first event we covered for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario over 5 years ago and it therefore acts as a sort of anniversary for Dave and I. We love our work with Make-A-Wish so very much and each and every event truly is such an incredibly rewarding experience. And of course, this year’s Wine for Wishes was not only rewarding, but so much fun!!
I sometimes can’t believe it has been 4 years since we started working with Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario – the time really has flown by! So much so that whenever anyone asks us how long we have been photographing their events, I really don’t have a quick answer, and often end up getting it wrong when I try to guesstimate. But when Wine for Wishes comes around each year it is like our little anniversary with this absolutely wonderful charity and, for us, it makes an already great event even better!
You may think that after covering the Make-A-Wish Wine for Wishes event for so many years in a row that it would get a little redundant and boring for us, but boy-oh-boy would you ever be wrong! Wine for Wishes may have the same idea each year in that it serves scrumptious food, wine and beer from all sorts of local vineyards, breweries and restaurants, but each year offers us something new to cover (plus the idea of food and beverages is pretty foolproof, right?!).
Make-A-Wish Wine for Wishes event was last Thursday evening and it was absolutely fantastic! Although, that really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone since it has a great track record of being such a great night for everyone involved.
Make-A-Wish is truly a wonderful charity and we love every minute of the time we spend with them either at their events or their granted wishes. This was our second year covering their Wine for Wishes event and we were so honoured they had us back.
