Better Housing Coalition 20th Anniversary Gala

On April 2, 2009, I photographed for the Better Housing Coalition their 20th Anniversary Celebration.
It was a lovely evening and brought back a lot of memories since I have been BHC’s photographer for all of those 20 years. I remember when Mary Tyler Cheek McClenahan and Carter McDowell first had the idea for a CDC that became the Better Housing Coalition. The event was held at H. Beckstoffer’s & Sons Mill in Historic Church Hill the site of a future BHC mixed-use, mixed-income community. Besides a celebration of 20 years of work the evening also was the first presentation of BHC’s Annual Leadership Awards.

Carter and Charlie McDowell sharing a moment during the reception.

Carter was honored by having a Mews at the new development named after her.

Pat Asch and friends, Pat was recipient of the Changer of Lives Award.

As people left the event BHC gave them plants as a gift to continue the evening’s “Green” community theme.
