In December we had the extreme pleasure of participating in Isabella’s Ball. This wasn’t just any other charity event though. Isabella’s Ball really was for a little girl named Isabella. Isabella has a disease known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta, and this was a celebration of her 5th birthday. Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), known as “brittle bone disease”, affects 20,000 to 50,000 people in the United States. OI often causes the person to have muscle weakness, hearing loss, scoliosis, blue sclerae, fatigue, and short stature. Organized by Confetti Events, the ball raised money to benefit the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation and the Tampa Shriners Hospital.
The event was a huge success! Donors and supporters raised over $1500 for the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation and the Shriners Hospital! It was so wonderful for MMD Events to play a part in this heartwarming event! K&K Photography sent us some of the photos that they took of the event, so we thought we would share a few!
