  1:00PM 5:00PM Focusing on Joyce  

What? On April 28th, several local businesses, led by Central Oklahoma Photo Society and Scissortail Silos, will be holding a photography mini session event at the beautiful Scissortail Silos event center in Blanchard. Funds raised will benefit Ninnekah native, Joyce Ryans, in her journey to get on the transplant list for a new kidney. How does it work? Ever been to wristband night at the carnival? Same concept. Pay $10 for kids 12 and younger or $15 for those over 12 and get access to 8-10 photographers set up in different stations at the beautiful Scissortail Silos event center located between Blanchard and Dibble. You'll give your name, phone number, and email address to each photographer, get a mini photo session, and in a few weeks you'll receive edited photos with copyright releases. There will also be music, burgers and hot dogs, and an assortment of raffle items for additional purchase. Why? Joyce's journey started in 2010, when she was pregnant with her first child and doctors discovered her kidneys had failed. She received a transplant in 2012, but that donated kidney has now failed. Because of Joyce's financial situation, she has to have a lump sum up front to pay transplant costs not covered by insurance before she can even start testing.
