FiftyFifty to host and#8216;3000 Words and#8212; Photography and Philanthropy Event

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation announces the 4th Annual 3000 Word Photography and Philanthropy Event at FiftyFifty Brewing Co. on Friday, June 29, 5-11 p.m.

3000 Words showcases the best in photography while raising money and awareness for the program services of the High Fives Foundation. A $10 door charge will include passed appetizers and entertainment.

Heralded photographers from the Lake Tahoe region and beyond will submit their best framed photographs in three inspirational categories: Winter, Human Power or Famous Mountain Landscapes / Eagles. These categories will represent the High Fives Foundation, Biking for a Better World and the Shane McConkey Foundation (respectively).

Attendees at 3000 Words will be able to vote on the best in show in each category. Or, take home a timeless piece of art via the silent auction. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the High Fives Foundation, which will in turn make donations to the Shane McConkey Foundation and Biking for a Better World. Beginning at 10 p.m., the classy affair will ease into a dance party with beats supplied by the Silver Boombox Thief.

“FiftyFifty is thrilled to be hosting this event for the third year in a row. We are always blown away by the photography, and the level of support and philanthropy is truly inspiring,” said Alicia Barr, co-owner of FiftyFifty Brewing.
