FOCOS Gala @ Mandarin Oriental

Last night I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing gala/ fundraiser at the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hotel (@MO_HOTELS @MO_NEWYORK) in NYC, for The Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS). What an amazing event with such great people!

The Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS)  - "is working towards a world where everyone has the opportunity to stand tall. To date, nearly 50,000 patients have been served by FOCOS and with the generous help of our supporters and volunteers we continue to transform lives across the globe.Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei is a world renowned orthopedic surgeon and the President and Founder of FOCOS. Through FOCOS, Dr. Boachie-Adjei seeks to improve the quality of life of patients in need throughout Africa and other parts of the world by providing optimum orthopedic care". (

At the cocktail reception an art gallery was displayed featuring work by patients at FOCOS hospital. Amazing work! - Check some of the pictures below. The artwork was actioned to raise funds for the hospital. What a great idea!

The main event included performance by LaChanze (@laChanze) , speeches by patients treated by Dr. Boachie and a guest of honor speech by Georgina Bloomberg (@georginabloomberg) and her father Michael Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg).

Enjoy the photos!
