Red Party 2015 at the Moose Lounge in SLC

by dav.d

I’ve been the event photographer for the Red Party for a few years now. The event was moved to the Moose Lounge this year and there is a good chance next year it will move to another location. The event organizer, Shawn, left his old job at the Hotel Monaco and will be working at a new Hotel in the future. In the meantime he still organizes this awesome party which is a fundraiser for the Utah AIDS Foundation. The funds will help those living with HIV/AIDS in Utah.

The Red Party had an evening of “gambling” with the chance to win more raffle tickets. There was also a silent auction on various items including hotel stays, art, and more. I even tried my hand at a blackjack tournament. I was doing OK but lost on the last hand when I went all in and the dealer ended up with a true blackjack.

The catering was provided by Le Croissant Catering and I overendulged on their h’orderves and desserts. The crew of Le Croissant are some of my favorite people.

And I don’t drink anymore but I will still photograph booze and people drinking booze. I liked how the bottles of Absolute were stacked and arranged by color. Its a rainbow of vodka.

And I took the chance to photograph some of the details of the poker games. People were pretty serious about winning. It’s a good thing I don’t have a gambling addiction. I don’t think my bank account would survive. So if I do visit Vegas it’ll be for the shows and entertainment.
