2012 Critical Illness Fund Event Video

The fundraiser on Friday June 29 at the Ag Hall went really well with somewhere between $4000 to $5000 raised to benefit the Mayne Island Critical Illness Fund's first recipient, Meredyth.

Here's a video of a few of the scenes from the evening and a montage of the before and after photos that Toby shot.

To see more of Toby's great photos from the evening go to his web site.

Regarding the video - this is my first attempt at recording a video for MayneNews - so I hope to do better in future. Admittedly my high-end video equipment, a point and shoot camera and an iPod Touch  didn't exactly provide great detail, but it was interesting going through the process of editing it all in iMovie.

If anyone has a digital video camera they could lend me for future events that would be great - info@maynenews.ca

Please pass around and share this video and Toby's photos. This event shows what a fantastic and generous community we have here.
