H.J. Pfaff Audi supports Portraits of Giving
Portraits of Giving is a unique photographic presentation created to celebrate people in our community who reach beyond their busy lives to give to others. It is where professional photography meets warm, personal stories. The result is a heartwarming exhibit that celebrates people with a passion for giving.
Karen Merk, LPPOC, PMP, an award winning York Region photographer, was personally inspired by people in the community who contribute their time and resources to the benefit of others. These are people who give back for the right reasons and don’t want to be in a spotlight, but felt honoured to be celebrated. Karen developed the concept for Portraits of Giving and has continued to produce and organize the exhibit for the past six years. Karen invited writer Melony Teague to contribute the touching stories behind the acts of giving of ten more York Region people, adding another dimension to this photography exhibit.
Portraits of Giving travels to five towns each year: Aurora, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan and Markham and for the first year it will travel to a 6th town, King Township. Also for the first time we have partnered with the Newmarket and Richmond Hill Chambers of Commerce. The charity recipient for the third year is the Character Community Foundation of York Region.
2015 marks the sixth year that the Portraits of Giving photography exhibit has been inspiring the community. This year, H.J. Pfaff Audi is proud to support Portraits of Giving as a sponsor.
