Get those phones out and take some pictures of our neighborhood! Your photo might be featured in the prestigious @IGersBoston gallery and you could win you a prize!
On Wednesday, September 27, Fairmont Copley Plaza will host the second annual @IGersBoston gallery event, exclusively exhibiting more than 100 stunning images of Boston and Massachusetts photographed by the @IGersBoston community.
The special event will gather the city’s top photographers in the hotel’s Venetian Room, all for a good cause. Prints of the photographs on display will be silent auctioned during the event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting Transition House, a Cambridge nonprofit working to prevent and end domestic violence through education, outreach and intervention.
