Ryan Callahan Foundation Annual Gala : Tampa Bay Lightning Photographs : Cally’s Crew : Professional Event Photography by tomas flint

“With 3 children of our own, we are deeply moved by the strength and courage demonstrated by the families whose own children are enduring cancer treatment. Through the Ryan Callahan Foundation, our mission is to provide moments of family unity and to replace the hardships of battling cancer, with the opportunity to create everlasting memories of togetherness, hope and love.” -Ryan Callahan #24

It’s an honor to serve as the Lead Photographer for this stellar organization – conceived, founded and operated by two of the most genuine people I know – Kyla and Ryan Callahan.  Last month I travelled to Tampa to document their annual fundraising Gala – this time held at the Armature Works in Downtown Tampa.  Hundreds showed up, including the entire current lineup of this year’s President’s Trophy winning Tampa Bay Lightning.  It was an environment marked by benevolence, generosity and compassion.  Kyla and Ryan spoke with great sincerity and passion. Awareness and money was raised. People will benefit from what was done that night. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful effort.
