My Volunteer Experience at YNPN’s Do Gooder Games

by Erik Weasenforth, Marketing Associate VISTA

This past Wednesday, I got to the chance to volunteer as a photographer for the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) at their Sixth Annual Do Gooder Games in Austin, where teams competed in rounds of mental and physical challenges, with the champion team getting $500 to donate towards their favorite nonprofit. The highlight of the night was definitely the costumes that teams wore.

Here are just a few awesome costumes from that night:

To see the rest of my photos from the Do Gooder Games, check out my Flickr album or read my personal blog about it. My goal is to get better at photography this year, and I have a lot of opportunities coming up soon with Theatre Action Project (TAP) events like the 5th Annual Pageant in the Park and TAP summer camp.
