This was Justina Roberts Photography's second year photographing Hopewell's Summer Solstice fundraising benefit event. I was honored to be invited back, this benefit was for an amazing, local, worthy cause.
"Hopewell provides an opportunity for adults with serious mental illness to experience a self-reliant and satisfying life through participation in a vibrant residential therapeutic farm community.
Hopewell’s Summer Solstice benefit was held at the beautiful property of Brian and Gretchen Colleran, who also served as Gold Sponsors of the event. Hawthorn, PNC Family Wealth® was the Presenting Sponsor, supporting Hopewell since the inception of Summer Solstice 17 years ago.
More than 500 guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and dinner served in a tent by Marigold Catering. Sandy and Sally Cutler were honored for their dedication and commitment to Hopewell. Following a live auction and a moving presentation by Theresa Piteo Trela, mother of a Hopewell resident (client), auctioneer Bob Hale conducted a Fund-a-Need paddle raise. Those proceeds will be used to provide fee assistance for families of Hopewell residents."
