This was the second year that I photographed the Home Builders Foundation, Building Hope Gala & Auction at the Nines – and what an amazing event it is! This year, they surpassed their goal and raised a record $314,000! The Portland Business Journal did a great write-up on the evening, here. Garrison Hullinger created the beautiful table centerpieces that matched the blue accent pieces at the Nines! And, Mayor Charlie Hales was there to show his support! A cake dash, paddle raise challenge, silent auction, and of course the live auction all contributed to a night of such great energy and generous donations!
