I had the great opportunity to photograph the annual fundraising dinner/auction for The Legionaires of Christ here in New York. I was both inspired and motivated by the speakers of the evening. Steven and Evelyn Auth were the 2011 Friends of the Legion award recipients. The event was hosted by David Wilder, managing director of the Lumen Institute. The live auctioneer was author and auctioneer Lorna Kelly . New York Yankee Mark Teixeira was also in attendance. The brothers that reside and learn at this institution will surely benefit from the generosity of the those attending the event. We may all benefit from the good work that these committed people provide. The food and ambiance were decadent, presented by Abigail Kirsch Caterers .
