Milkey AICR Fundraiser at historic venue NOVA 535

Friday 13, 2015 – Milkey AICR Fundraiser at historic venue NOVA 535

Back in 2014 we held a 50th birthday party for Kevin Milkey, hosted by his delightful wife Jeanne, here at NOVA 535, featuring the incredible dueling pianos from Rockin’ Pianos, delicious food from Puff n Stuff catering plus exciting other surprises.Well that party was so fun and successful the decided to host it again on Friday March 13, 2015 at St. Pete’s historic venue NOVA 535, yet this time instead of a birthday bash, they created a fundraiser for AICR – American Institute for Cancer Research and cleverly disguised it as a party. And wow what an incredible party we had!

Below are all of the photos that I shot on my Cannon 6D. I’m a guy with a good camera but certainly not to be mistaken for a professional photog! Practice and lightroom editing certainly helps though I had to do some in B & W to help make up for my not yet mastery of the flash, and because B & W is cool!

Mark, thanks for grabbing my camera and catching a quick shot of me (below), as it’s much nicer than a quick selfie with a zoom lense (above)!

I do my best to help ensure the all of NOVA 535’s clients and guests receive a 5 Star experience and by working with other excellent vendors we (hopefully every single time) accomplish that!  If you had a 5 Star experience please say something nice online about NOVA 535 as it’s most helpful and appreciated by our small local business! =D
