JULY 2007 PHOTO EXHIBIT AND FUNDRAISER - Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation


The first public exhibit of photography by h. Ford Pierson was held in Carmel Valley, California, on Sunday, July 15, 2007.  Created as a fundraiser for the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, the presentation was held on a beautiful, sunny afternoon at the prestigious Bernardus Lodge on the Central Coast of California.  About 100 people stopped by throughout the day to enjoy incredible photographs as well as exceptional Bernardus Vineyard wines and delicious food.  Quite a few pieces were sold, as well as several direct donations made to the foundation, raising about $400 from the afternoon.
Hugh Pierson, the photographer and a desmoid tumor patient, will continue to donate a portion of his art sales to DTRF.  His work can be viewed and purchased at www.hfordpierson.com.
It is critical that we continue to support the ongoing research to cure this disease.  Simply by adding the DTRF website to the invitations and presenting information at the event, with envelopes and donation cards (which we printed), we were able to educate and encourage continued donations by the public.
