EDWARDSVILLE — Amy Bezek, owner/photographer at AB Photography LLC, recently presented a check for $1,750 to the Dinners for Kids Program.

Bezek said the money was raised from her Christmas Tree mini-sessions — $530 was raised from the Christmas Tree Farm mini sessions and $1,220 from the Santa mini sessions.

Bezek presented the check to Bob Borwick, president of Dinners for Kids, and Matthew Borwick, owner of Ollie’s Restaurant, sponsor of Dinners for Kids.

Dinners for Kids — a program that addresses food insecurity for students in the Wyoming Valley West and Dallas school districts — was started in 2011 by Dave and Edna Tevet, former owners of Ollie’s American Restaurant in Edwardsville. The program delivers meals to school-aged children in need.

“Every morning when I wake up, I thank God for another day and I ask him what I can do to better the world,” Bezek said. “I think the world is an amazing place and one person can change the flow of energy anywhere. Three years ago, I started to promote mini sessions for holidays to raise awareness and funds for local nonprofits and shelters.”

Here are some other fundraising events that Bezek does:

• Valentine’s Day event supports either Griffin Pond or Blue Chip.

• Easter event supports Whiskers World.

• Mother’s Day event supports Ruth’s Place.

• Father’s Day event supports Big Brothers Big Sisters.

• Grandparents Day event supports a local Senior Citizens Center in different towns located in Luzerne County.

• Halloween event supports Serendipity Therapeutic Riding Program.

”Every month I am doing some type of fundraising event to better our local community,” Bezek said.”Every year, I’m hoping to raise more and continue to grow my local community by supporting it.”
