I had the honor of photographing an Employee Appreciation Event for a local non-profit agency whose mission is to "do whatever it takes to help children, strengthen families, build community, and advocate for systems change…to ensure that our families thrive." Uplift Family Services, formerly known as EMQ FamiliesFirst, is a wonderful agency with phenomenal people who are dedicated to helping children and families in every capacity imaginable. They are compassionate, resourceful, endure many challenges in their difficult job and surely deserved this day of appreciation. I'm grateful I was able to capture the fun had by all at this awesome event! To find out more about Uplift Family Services, how you can support their mission, or contribute in some way you can visit their website @ http://emqff.org.
Here's a peek into the fun, which took place in Old Town, Sacramento. Uplift employees had the option to choose their own adventure; an underground tour of Old Sac or a Sacramento river boat cruise on the Hornblower. I wasn't able to attend both activities so the boat cruise festivities were featured for the day. If you're local, visiting or nearby and have never enjoyed a river cruise, I highly suggest it. Lots of information, history, beverages and a comfortable viewing area make for a fabulous afternoon. If you want to find out more about the Hornblower Cruises, you can visit their website @ http://www.hornblower.com. After that, the CEO and Executive Director spoke to the staff, acknowledging the all the hard work and impact the agency has had on our community. It was inspirational and must have left the employees feeling accomplished and proud of their contributions to the agency's success. Lastly was LUNCH on the Delta King. A great time where the employees were able to mingle, socialize and enjoy a delicious lunch. The Delta King hosts various events (including a murder mystery dinner that is such a fun event) with tasty food and quite a unique experience. Check them out @ http://www.deltaking.com.
