2012 Spares and Strikes event to benefit Michael J Fox Foundation

This past September we had the privilege once again of photographing another spectacular event for one of our favorite organizations.  This most recent event by the Michael J Fox Foundation took place in the bowling lanes of 300 New York in the Chelsea Piers . What a great chance to have some fun and raise some money to end Parkinsons.

They had a photobooth set up as everyone was entering, although most people took advantage of it on the way out.

There were a LOT of bowling shoes available.  And I especially love the private event sign.

The DJ’s on hand were none other than The Jane Doze .   They performed all night while the bowling was under way.

Once Michael arrived a few words of thanks and encouragement by some of the Michael J Fox Foundation leadership council.  (Hey that’s me on the staircase.)

Michael always gets everyone attention, and inspires so many to do such amazing things with their time and talent.

Connecticut’s own Alison Wachstein was on location for this bowling event with her daughter.  Alison also spends time with any event that raises money to help fight Parkinson’s Disease

One of Michael’s great throws leading to a nice spare.
