This picture, taken on the Opening Reception for The Innocence Project Benefit at the North Star Cafe, shows Eileen Skinner, President and CEO of Mercy Hospital, and photographer, Donald Verger, sharing a laugh. Donald Verger’s opening reception raised over $2,000 for the nonprofit organization in New York. Eileen Skinner made a leadership donation to the Innocence Project, which Verger matched, also donating his image “Dawn of Peace”. Mr. Verger’s healing work is displayed in a rotating gallery in Mercy Hospital, a donation from this award winning photographer to be enjoyed by both the patients and staff.
