My friend, Mary, is a volunteer at SAHELI (http://www.saheli-austin.org/) and she talked me into photographing this fundraiser since I’m always up to partake in nonprofit events. Based on their website, SAHELI ( Support, Advocate, Heal,Empower, Listen, and Inform) is a “nonprofit organization based in Austin, Texas, that provides assistance to Asian and other immigrant families dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault and trafficking”. I had a blast covering the event and met some wonderful and charismatic individuals. Here are some photos from the night.
