Boston, MA, February 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Fenway Health Presents “The Men’s Event,” A Black-tie Annual Fundraiser For Equal Health Care.
Gored, a thought-provoking photo from Matt McKee's Sweet Shrapnel series, has been selected to be part of the silent auction at Fenway Health's The Men's Event, A Black Tie Annual Fundraiser for Equal Health Care.
Matt McKee, a Boston based photographer and supporter of equal rights, entered the auction, stating, "The Sweet Shrapnel series represents my own apprehensions of the potential between humanity and technology. In this age, when so much can happen so quickly, for good and ill, it makes so much sense to support the concepts of equality, end the stupidity and bigotry, and participate in dialogues based on the arguments you bring to the table, not who you happen to fall in love with."
Sweet Shrapnel is a photographic juxtaposition of graphic photos featuring high explosives and fruit, representing the potential of humanity and nature combined. The ever-growing series has been called "weird," "twisted," "shocking" and "beautiful, but somehow wrong, too."
Fenway Health's annual event brings together more than 1,300 gay, transgender, and bisexual men, along with their loyal supporters, to dine and dance the night away while raising awareness of the crucial importance of equal health care. Last year's event raised over $600K.
The Men's Event will be held on Saturday, March 9th, at the Boston Marriot Copley Place at 110 Huntington Ave in Boston, from 6PM to 1AM. Tickets are $250 each and tables, seating 12 people, cost $3,000. To purchase tickets, call the Development Office at (617) 927-6350.
