We Heart Sharlane- A Benefit with Heart

Sharlane Chase is a pillar of the Seattle Photography community. She's a mother, a bride-to-be, a photographer, and a cancer warrior. I myself have never had the privledge of meeting Shalane face to face. That said her work has inspired me on more than one occasion both as a photographer and a business woman.

Back in 2007 when I first started looking for a web designer I looked at hundreds of sites for ideas. AND then I found LuLu Weddings. It was through this encounter with Sharlane's collaboritive wedding website that I found the artistic genuis of Naomi Cox at Spill Studio.

Naomi designed a beautiful site for me and I might not have found her if it weren't for Sharlane.

AND then there is a little jewel of a show known as Urban Unveiled. The boutique show started by Sharlane has quickly developed a chic following. It's an amazing show; it's hard not to be impressed by her ingenuity.

Sharlane was recently diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is scary enough, but add to that the cost of battling it and it's easy to become overwhelmed. That's why Sharlane's friends and the Seattle Wedding Community have banned together to host an auction to benefit Sharlane.

The event is tonight at SODO Park from 7-10PM. The event is about clebrating love, life, laughter, and art while benefitting a woman known and loved by so many. It's an amazing opportunity to grab a friend or love one and come to a fun event that will celebrate and support an amazing woman as she fights for her life. There will be all kinds of items up for bidding ranging from photography wedding packages to pieces of art. AND if you can't attend there are other ways you can still participate.

You can help Sharlene in four (4) easy ways:
· Donate money (it’s PayPal — too easy!):
· Donate an item (great way to gain exposure and showcase your work for an amazing cause):
· Bid on a silent auction item on Feb 4th (Check out the list of amazing goods):
· Spread the word! Please pass this invitation along on facebook, twitter and email!

I hope to see many of you there!
