Shooting for Charity / by Erika Sneeringer

I was recently honored by being asked to shoot a charity event. I was skeptical at first because it was for a celebrity golf outing.  I know nothing about golf and the idea of celebrities was a bit intimidating.  When I looked up the charity, Cool Kids Campaign, and read about the wonderful things they do for pediatric oncology patients and their families I knew I had to be a part of it.

You wouldn't know you were in a room full of celebrities.  Not only because I don't exactly follow sports but because they were all so down to earth, friendly and easy to chat with.

Very attractive Martinez family with none other than Steve Rogers!

I had the pleasure of meeting one of their cancer patients, Juliana Carver.  She is a young teenager fighting cancer for the 5th time.  Her family was so full of hope and inspiration. 

Her quote, "I'm NOT a giver upper" is perfect.

You can follow her journey at Angels for Juliana

Shooting a day on the golf course was a blast.... once I figured out how to drive the golf cart!

It was a perfect sunny day away from the office.

There is a lot about golf I don't know... especially the fact that they have their own language.  birdie, bogey, mulligan and other things I have no idea what they mean.  

Either way, it was a great day and fun experience for a good cause!
