RYAN CALLAHAN FOUNDATION : LAUNCH GALA : TAMPA MUSEUM OF ART, FL

“Extraordinary Experiences for Remarkable Families”

Based on the belief that special moments of togetherness have the power to elevate each family’s hope and spirit, The Ryan Callahan Foundation aims to provide support and strength to the children and families of children battling Pediatric Cancer.  If you’d like to learn more about the Foundation, or feel that you could be of benefit to or from it, please visit their website at www.ryancallahanfoundation.org.  The Tampa community is blessed by this extraordinary athlete, his EXTRAORDINARY wife and family, and the initiatives they are taking to make a difference.

I came to know the Callahan’s through their wedding in 2011.  Since then we have grown quite close.  Before my son came along I told Ryan that if I ever had a son, he would hear stories of Ryan Callahan told from the 1st person perspective.  Stories that illustrate exactly what a role model athlete is.  I admire Cal, what he’s accomplished – what he has yet to accomplish – his drive, dedication and most of all – humility.  The Foundation that he and Kyla started is testament to their deep roots.  Roots that are settled in family, compassion, respect and support.  I’m so proud of these two!!  …and so grateful to be given the privilege to serve as their documentarian.

It is an honor to serve as the Lead Photographer for the Ryan Callahan Foundation.  Below is an abbreviated account of the recent Launch Gala at the Tampa Museum of Art in Tampa, Fl.  Big thanks to Event Coordinator Noor Zufari @ Anna Lucia Events in Tampa, Fox 13 Tampa Bay’s Charlie Belcher for MC’ing the gig and to the Sarah Charness whose solo electric violin performances are, well…electrifying!  Finally, to all who attended and gave so generously to this wonderful cause, we salute you!
