Woodford County notes: Dinner to aid charities

April 28, 2014 

Midway-based Photizo Group is holding a charity dinner at 7 p.m. June 4 at the Galt House in Louisville to support the American Cancer Society, Hope Hill, Casa por Christo and the Eastern Congo Initiative. The event is co-sponsored by Office Document Consulting.

Photizo Foundation, a nonprofit organization started by Executive Director Edward Crowley, is hosting the fourth annual Imaging Industry VIP Charity Dinner. Last year's event raised more than $4,600 for the charities, contributing to a $25,000 total donation to date. This year's dinner has been expanded to include the general public. As a result, Photizo Group hopes to raise a record-high donation this year.

The dinner is being hosted in the Waterford Room on the 25th floor of the Galt House. The night will include dinner, a live auction and featured speakers from both the Hope Hill and American Cancer Society charities. Select auction items can be viewed at 2014annualvipcharitydinner.splashthat.com and are available for pre-bidding. Tickets are $250. To purchase tickets, contact Photizo Group at info@photizogroup.com, or visit 2014annualvipcharitydinner.splashthat.com.
