Celebration of Friends

Paul Richard Wossidlo Photography: Celebration of Friends &emdash; Last Thursday I photographed the annual "Celebration of Friends" presentation put on by the Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh, which was held at the JCC in Squirrel Hill.

Friendship Circle is a non-profit organization that unites high-school age Jewish teens with young members of the Jewish disabled community.  My son KJ, who has autism, has been attending for several years.  There are a variety of sponsored activities that support a wide range of interests.  KJ always looks forward to getting the postcard in the mail announcing upcoming activities.

Last Thursday's presentation was an end of year wrap up to recognize everyone's efforts.  Especially those students who are graduating seniors, and will be moving on from Friendship Circle.  This year's colors are purple and gold, as you can tell from the photos.

Photos from the event can be found here.   The password is "volunteers", because they are the ones who make Friendship Circle work as well as it does.
