The countdown’s on, people.
Today marks 15 days until I board a plane and fly to New York for our second annual Dart Society fundraiser.
I can’t wait.
Based on the theme, “In the Zone,” we’ll be honoring Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm and co-producer, with the late Tim Hetherington, of the Academy Award-nominated “Restrepo.”
We’ll also be recognizing Lynsey Addario, a photographer who was one of four New York Times journalists taken prisoner in Libya and Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, an organization that does vital work around the world on this critical issue.
Our executive director Deirdre Stoelzle Graves has worked tirelessly for the event, as has new member Leif Skoogfors.
There will be an auction of close to 40 prints donated by Society members, and food and drink for all.
All in all, it promises to be a fantastic evening.
I’m also looking forward to seeing the New York members and other people within the Dart community.
For those of you who are still so inclined, there’s still time to join us and to donate.
Here’s the invitation:
