Default Dvorjak and Prokofiev! August 21st with dinner! NOW ONLY 2 PLACES LEFT!

Join 4 of us!

A boxseat with the rich and famous at the Hollywood Bowl for a good cause: to help fund our temporary assistance to our OPF member Keith Kiiroja! This is another way of helping! Uniquely you get to enjoy an evening with some of the most wonderful people. We have received 6 box seats at the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. How about the opportunity of a lifetime?

Then the exquisite Violin concerto No. 2, Sergey Khachatryan, Violin
and to end the sublime evening the Symphony No. 8 by Dvorjak!



Are you interested? Proceeds to help pay the rent and electric bill to allow Keith to keep his gear and get back on track as a freelance photographer. So far, we have provided a short-time reprieve. Keith will be able to do a shoot this weekend. We need more cash so how about getting in on this opportunity?

This is a $108 value. For $85 minimum donation for the fund and ($15 for your dinner), $100 ,(minimum) buys you a place at the table!

Thanks for being generous and enjoying the best music on the planet!

Join us for an enjoyable and perfectly splendid evening! Offer at least $100 per seat and you are in!

Asher


PRICE REDUCED TO $130 for the 2 remaing seats! Dont miss this great opportunity, great company, sublime music with dinner and wine!

Here's a way to have a really enjoyable evening and help a special photographer get back on track with the fine work he does while giving love and care to his only child.

I hope you can celebrate our love for life and thanks for the portions we have by offering at least $100, (all except $15 for your dinner) will go to the Keith Kiikoja Support Fund.

Others have given that much and more. This it is hoped will encourage some more donations and get us another $340 to $800 if we are lucky.

I am just trying what ideas come to my head. If you have ideas, (or portable flash set up to donate) let us know!

Also tell us what do you think. Should OPF be doing this? You bet! Your comments are welcome!

Asher

If anyone feels it's not right to have such a fund, that's O.K. too. There is no instruction manual that comes with setting up a website for photography, so we're just winging it. Just posting elsewhere on OPF, also supports everything we want to do. Surpise us with you best photographs in another thread so we can celebrate what is great about what we see around us! No one needs to feel pressured to actually donate. Some simply cannot, and that's understandable.

We try to help each other with great pictures, technics and views on photography. This current project is still part of the Journey to making Great Pictures. There's nothing wrong with a bag of passhion in one's camera bag!

Wink Asher,

That would be six seats in a box, Beethoven's Fifth, a 4 course dinner, three photographers, two pretty women and a bottle (or two) of wine. Now that is a bargain.

Guys,

Don't let the two seats go empty! I'll give the money on your behalf! Contact me if you can make it!

Default I'd love to join you.....

but I'm in Australia :-( ..... what a night that would be. If I could afford the time, I would love to visit you guys there. Although I have not heard the LAPO perform before, I'm quite sure they will be fantastic...... the Dvorjak symphony would be my favourite out of the proposed repertoire, but I'm sure you will enjoy them all. I wish I could be there.

Hope you enjoy your evening gentlemen (and ladies.....),

Regards,

Barry.

Barry,

Here's the deal: when you visit L.A. we'll take you! You will ove the experience. The Los Angeles Philharmonic is at the top of it's game and gives stellar moving well interpreted performances.

As it is, Kathy and Frank Rappaport joined us and I also invited my youngest son and one of my favorite models, Rebecca, so we had a great time!

The thing people can do now is to provide cash by PayPal or Check or else send a signed archival art print for us to sell.

This is an amazing community and we'll get together to help Keith each in our own way. If it's just good thoughts and perhaps a few encouraging words, that's fine too.

Asher
