The Toronto Camera Club presents their 124th INTERNATIONAL SALON of PHOTOGRAPHY

ANTARCTICA – Through the Lens. Nov 16

We are very excited about our upcoming show. Rob Kline, award winning RHCC photographer, and myself, Ron Goodlin (Past president RHCC and GTCCC Judge – I have spoken to many of your clubs about my adventures with polar bears and grizzly bears in the past….) will be presenting a 90 minute show about our recent adventures in Antarctica.

We will also be having a print gallery before the show.
Exciting news, we have procured several items for a live auction with the culmination of a donation for: a Cruise for 2 people to Antarctica through Swoop, to be auctioned off at the end of the show with no minimum bid…this is a $17,000 value and it could be your chance to get to antarctica at a fraction of the cost!
All proceeds from auction, print, books and ticket sales will go to World Wildlife Fund Canada and Oceanites research, Rob and I are not making a penny from this endeavour, as it is our way to give back to a worthy cause and help stop the effects of climate change…..
We are therefore asking for your support, with the blessings of the GTCCC, to please add this attached pdf to your club presentations,
so as to please announce this to your membership AT EVERY UPCOMING MEETING until the November 16 date.
this is a worthy cause and we promise a very exciting and entertaining evening of images, videos and stories about our almost 1 month excursion to Antarctica this past January.
and in addition give them the email address for information….
Thank you for your help with this project and we look forward to seeing you there!
PS….(even if you can’t make it, you can help the cause by buying a ticket online as a form of a donation for Oceanites Penguin research and WWF Canada)
