Raleigh photographer volunteers to document
2009 Homes Tour, Party
November 5, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) – Photographer Max Cohen of Cohen Studios in downtown Raleigh, NC, has volunteered his professional services for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County’s ninth Home Tour and Party on Sunday, November 22.
The annual event is a fundraiser for Habitat/Wake that takes participants on a tour of homes built by Habitat/Wake volunteers. After the homes tour, the party at Habitat’s ReStore on Raleigh Boulevard kicks off the holiday season.
Max Cohen will photograph each of the homes on the tour and capture the festivities at the ReStore, which sells recycled and usable building materials at discount to raise money for building Habitat homes.
“I’m a huge fan of Habitat’s mission of building affordable homes for people in need,” said Cohen, who opened his photography studio this year. “And Habitat is all about volunteerism, so I figured I should do my part. I’m a lot better with a camera than I am a hammer.”
The after-tour party will include seafood from 42nd Street Oyster Bar in Raleigh and live music. Tickets are $50 and are available at http://www.habitatwake.org/index.html.
