alan and i had the absolute honor to finally meet the fine folks at Brittany's Battle on sunday at the organization's 2nd annual Boots, Bands & Bulls event, held at the longbranch. i've been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know so many caring and wonderful people through my lens in these 3 short years i've been in business, and i can certainly say that this group is running at the top of the pack.
the event was kicked off by local musicians scott mccreery and kevin lee, and both put on a great show for the crowd. by 4:30, the place was pumped for jason michael carroll, n.c.'s own national recording artist and honorary chairman for Brittany's Battle. in the next hour and a half, jason and his band brought the crowd from excitement to laughter, to tears, to hope, and back to excitement in one of the best live performances i've ever seen. here are a few of our favorite images from the awesome day.
Brittany's Battle, Inc. was founded in memory of Brittany Coppedge, a young lady that is still very obviously loved by so many, and who lost her own fight with lung cancer at age 19 in 2006. the organization is dedicated to raising awareness about lung cancer as well as raising funds to help support other families facing their own battle with cancer. for more information and to find out how you can get involved, please visit http://www.brittanysbattle.org/.
