Middlesex Community College Celebrity Forum 2017 with “Big Papi” David Ortiz

Posted in Event, Portrait by harkinsphoto on June 9, 2017


This event season comes to a big finale for me at the Middlesex Community College Celebrity Forum 2017 with Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz “Big Papi”.

I got Big Papi to give me a quick portrait in the green room just before all the action on stage. He was then interviewed to a full house at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium by Dan Roche, award-winning sports anchor and reporter for WBZ-TV News.

Later that night we did our usual hundreds of guest shaking hands with him before he dashed away into the night.
