Check out this latest post from Nichole Jenniges Photography as she continues to support the Face It Foundation! Please consider contacting Nichole about your family shoot, Xmas photos or whatever and in turn help out the Face It Foundation. Minnesota clients, friends and family... I am excited to announce... Nichole Jenniges Photography is PAYING IT FORWARD! I will be in Minnesota September 23rd - October 9th!! That means it's the perfect time to fill my calendar with family sessions ~ it's never too early to have your Christmas card photo taken or update your family portrait. Sessions are $250.00 and take place at a location of your choice. Plan on 1 - 2 hours of fun! A portion of each session fee will be donated to FaceIt Foundation - this non-profit helps men suffering with depression. A great organization that I am so proud to support. One last piece of exciting news... for every 5 sessions I book for the two weeks I am in Minnesota, I will draw one of them out of a hat and offer their session for FREE! Let's just say I have been feeling a little giving lately :) Let's all pay it forward! Let me know if you are interested in booking your family session. I already have booked 4... so one more and the first name I draw out of the hat gets theirs for free!!!

"Alive at the Market" has gotten bigger and bigger each year. A big part of that growth is directly contributed to Mike Woodley. We met Mike a number of years ago and he found our cause an important one so he jumped right in. He helps arrange all the music we have each year, he finds sponsors and gathers up silent auction items. He generates buzz around the event like no other and it was his idea to expand to add the Friday night show this year...it was a HUGE success and a ton of fun. Mike is also great on stage as well. He is a great spokesman for our cause and there is none better at live auctioning signed guitars! Thank you Mike, for all you do for Face It and many, many other wonderful causes.

At this year's "Alive at the Market" you saw most amazing entertainers on a super cool stage set up. What you didn't see though is the HUGE class A RV parked out back for the entertainers to use before the show began. 2016 was the 3rd year that Shorewood RV donated the use of this rolling palace to keep our guys cool and dry. So thanks to Jeff Nobbe and great folks at Shorewood RV. Please take a minute and like their Facebook page as a big thank you for all their support of what we do here at Face It.

If you attended Alive at the Market last weekend you saw some great performers up on that stage...Thanks to Gig tech! Rick Olsen did an amazing job setting up the stage and laying out all the audio. Of Course none of this would have been possible without Audrey Lord and her dedicated staff at the Farmers Market Annex. In about 90 minutes they convert one of the largest Farmers markets around into the perfect venue for our event....plus prepare and serve all the delicious food! Thank you Rick and Audrey for making our event, the most successful one yet!

This years "Alive at the Market" had an incredible lineup of talent over two nights. First, the HEADLINER Band who has been with us for 4 years now and still continues to amaze! Whether backing up Randall Hall, Alex Ligertwood or Kevin Chalfant, James Coughlin and the boys really bring it. David Harris did a fantastic job keeping the crowd on the edge of their seat with mind boggling magic and hilarious comedy. Tim Mahoney brought his Minnesota flair to both Friday and Saturday shows and even debuted a special song he just wrote in honor of Brad Delp. To Barry Goudreau and Fran Cosmo, you two brought a new level of energy with your classic guitar and memorable vocals! Thanks to all you amazing performers for making this, the largest "Alive at the Market EVER!
The time has come for us to start thanking some of the people that support Alive at the Market and believe in our mission here at Face It. I think we should start at the very top with Lori Gardner. Lori, along with some friends and her family created Alive at the Market to honor her brother Eric who passed away in 2010. It was her vision and drive that created what many of you witnessed this past weekend. It is that same dedication and support from Lori and her family that allow us at Face It to do what we do and will forever make all our services free of charge. We just can't thank Lori and her mother and father enough for believing in two. slightly odd fellas for St.Anthony and our goal to make a difference. So...Here's to LORI!!!!!
One of the BIG reasons we are able to do what we do here at Face It....The "Point of Light Award". Here is Lori Gardner, last years winner announcing this years winner....Debbie O'Gara!
Wow...More than a Weekend has come and gone! A quick show of hands...how many of you had fun? How many of you felt like you helped to make a difference in the life of a guy struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts? I see...all of you! Well let me just take a moment to acknowledge both our very own Birthday Boy and the absolute heart and soul behind the event this past weekend...Bill Dehkes! First Happy Birthday Bill!!! Second, from me and absolutely everyone associated with Face It a great big "Thank you!" When I tell you that Alive at the Market doesn't happen without Bill, I mean it. From the details of figuring out where to put a monster stage, to staying up all night to cook you a great meal, to re-designing bid sheets, to arranging flights for Fran and Barry, to coordinating with the Brad Delp Foundation, to pretty much everything else it takes to pull off this event, Bill is the guy! So please take a moment and both wish Bill a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY and say thanks for all he does to keep Face It going. Thanks Bill! I love you like a brother and I am so very grateful for your work!!!! Mark
More than a Weekend - Alive at the Market has come and gone! It truly is an emotional and humbling experience for Mark and I to see so many friends, family and supports come together to help us drive our mission here at Face It. Thank you to all the sponsors, Silent Auction donors, volunteers and most importantly...everyone that came out this weekend. Over the next few days we will have plenty of more posts thanking those that really make this weekend so very special. THANK YOU!
