Date for Life Pre-Event - Photography by Laine Torres

January 30, 2013  •  2 Comments

Date for Life is a fundraiser event that benefits the Children's Cancer Research Fund and takes place in Minneapolis. It involves the auction of dates with bachelors and bachelorettes with fun and exciting plans for a night out on the town. It was created in memory of Katie Jurek, who showed implacable strength and courage while battling cancer as a teenager. It moved me to know how Katie touched the lives of many, and, even though I did not have the chance to meet her, I was honored when I was called in to donate my time and photos to this cause.

And so, last week, Chris (my hubby and assistant) and I went out to the Graves 601 Hotel (Bradstreet Craftshouse) armed with tons of equipment to photograph head shots of the bachelors and bachelorettes who will be participating in the date auction. The night was fun and full of interesting people. It was great to meet some of them and hear first-hand what their dates are going to be like. You can check out the date packages and learn more about each of them at their profile pages.

I am very excited to also be covering the actual event on February 7th, and to showcase the winners with their soon-to-be dates.

Here's a big THANKS to DFL's Team for orchestrating such an amazing event and giving me the opportunity to be a part of something so special!

Check out the head shots I grabbed at the pre-event. If someone catches your eye, make sure you come join us and bid on them! You never know, you may end the night with a hot date on your calendar! :)

Bachelors & Bachelorettes above: Luis, Steve, Marji, Shara, Ben, Jessica, Tim, Anna, Ted & Gretchen.
