In celebration of the Tutu Project‘s first anniversary, PocketWizard manufacturer LPA Design is co-sponsoring The Tutu Project NYC Gallery Event in support of The Carey Foundation, a breast cancer charity.
The event â€” which includes a photo exhibition, lecture, book signing and charity auction â€” takes place on Friday 22nd March and Saturday 23rd March, 2013 at The Lab NYC, 122 West 26th Street in New York City.
LPA Design has made 20 pink limited edition Plus III radio triggers, signed by photographer Bob Carey, to auction at the exhibition with proceeds going to the foundation. There will also be a pink limited edition G-Wiz Squared bag, which is going to be sold via the PocketWizard web site in April.
Company vice president Dave Schmidt said: â€œIt is such an honor and a privilege to support Bob Carey and his Tutu Project by offering these limited edition pink Plus III radio triggers for auction. Bobâ€™s selflessness and devotion to helping raise funds for women battling breast cancer is truly inspiring.â€
The Tutu Project is a series of artistic self-portraits of Bob Carey wearing a pink tutu in scenic locations. Proceeds from prints and books of the photographs go to the Carey Foundation, which supports women suffering from breast cancer.
